Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwells nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiffs attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwells prescience of modern life—the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language—and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.

Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him. The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats. At one end of it a coloured poster, too large for indoor display, had been tacked to the wall. It depicted simply an enormous face, more than a metre wide: the face of a man of about forty-five, with a heavy black moustache and ruggedly handsome features.

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him.
Nineteen Eighty-Four is divided into basically three parts, Awakening, Rebellion, and re-education. In Oceania, everyone has something called a telescreen which is like a television but instead of broadcasting in only one direction, it transmits in both directions resulting in a third party watching everyone. He does not like the party or the nature of what they are promoting or what they have done. Winston rents a room with no telescreen and resides there, but he is spied on by a woman. The woman and Winston become lovers.
