"A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable of our times....The steadiness and lucidity of Orwell's merciless wit are reminiscent of Anatole France and even of Swift." (The New York Times Book Review)
I am aware that this story was inspired in part by the Soviet uprising but many of the points feel like commentary on human nature. We can fool ourselves easily when we want to believe an untruth or don't want to believe the reality. This is especially true when we try to recall our memories of events, people and how things used to be. Things are surely better now than they used to be...
One of my favorite fictional books. I'm so glad that I got to listen to it. It adds such a different element. Orwell is incredible with his storytelling abilities, especially when it comes to dystopia.
great shot story, you get sucked in and want to finish it! I would have liked to read this one before "1984" but that is just my preference, I can go back and listen to it again.
