    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    Overall

    I found the reading of 1984 by Simon Prebble to be one of the best narrative's I have ever listened to -- he makes all of the characters come to life and breaths a fantastic 'theater of the mind' experience that could only be rivaled by actually 'reading' the book. The story is as contemporary today, if not more so, as it was when it was first written over 60 years ago. Dark, fascinating, scary, and incredibly entertaining. I highly recommend. Enjoy!
