This is a really good book, in 1984 you can really feel how a dystopian world would be like, the voice acting it's great but probably you need to hear this book more than once because there is a lot of heavy ideas going on in this book.
This is an essential book. Sadly, in some ways, the book is more relevant today than ever before with growing concerns regarding privacy. This is not a happy book. It is hard to read this book without feeling depressed, revolted, or both. The book, though, serves as a warning in many respects and raises many thought-provoking concepts. It is truly an essential read for any educated citizen.
This is the first time I've read 1984 and now understand why it is a classic. Simon (the narrator) was great about changing his voice to suit different characters. 👍
Though perhaps educationally and philosophically useful, the latter half was painful to listen to... Of course, this is intentional, but not necessarily entertaining.
Narration is excellent. And if you care about the future and preserving individual freedom, get this book and pay attention. It portends a future so grim yet so achievable by socialists and communists. Now you will see their end game played out in front of you.
This book has been on my list of books I felt an obligation to read for most of my adult life. I am glad to finally have gotten to it as an audiobook. The book far surpassed my expectations. The narrator was great at giving different voices and indications of a shift through his tone.
