Overview

Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read.

«No creo que la sociedad que he descrito en 1984 necesariamente llegue a ser una realidad, pero sí creo que puede llegar a existir algo parecido», escribía Orwell después de publicar su novela. Corría el año 1948, y la realidad se ha encargado de convertir esa pieza -entonces de ciencia ficción- en un manifiesto de la realidad.


En el año 1984 Londres es una ciudad lúgubre en la que la Policía del Pensamiento controla de forma asfixiante la vida de los ciudadanos. Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso y su cometido es reescribir la historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera la versión oficial de los hechos. Hasta que decide replantearse la verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

A masterpiece of rebellion and impresionment, where war is peace, freedom is slavery, and Big Brother is watching... Thought Police. Big Brother. Orwellian. These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984.


"War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength". Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he's handed a note that says simply "I love you" by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. This book is a dramatic adaptation of the classic novel.

About the Author

George Orwell (Motihari, India, 1903 - Londres, 1950), cuyo nombre real era Eric Blair, fue novelista, ensayista brillante y maestro de periodistas. Podría decirse que su breve vida resume los sueños y las pesadillas del mundo occidental en el siglo XX. Nació en la India británica en el seno de una familia de clase media, estudió con una beca en el exclusivo colegio de Eton, sirvió en la Policía Imperial en ultramar (Los días de Birmania, 1934), volvió a Europa, donde vivió a salto de mata (Sin blanca en París y Londres, 1933), regresó a la Inglaterra rural y empezó allí el ejercicio de la docencia (La hija del clérigo, 1935), escribió sobre la clase obrera inglesa y la explotación (Que no muera la aspidistra, 1936; El camino a Wigan Pier, 1937), recogió su experiencia de lucha contra el fascismo en la turbulenta Guerra Civil española (Homenaje a Cataluña, 1938), vislumbró en la convalecencia posterior el derrumbe del viejo mundo (Subir a por aire, 1939), colaboró con la BBC durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, se consagró en el Tribune y el Observer como uno de los mejores prosistas en lengua inglesa (entre su vasta producción ensayística cabe destacar El león y el unicornio y otros ensayos, 1940), fabuló las perversiones del socialismo (Rebelión en la granja, 1945) y llegó a anticipar nuevos tipos de sociedad burocrática e hiperpolítica (1984, 1949). A pesar de su temprana muerte, se le sigue considerando la conciencia de una generación y una de las voces más lúcidas que se han alzado contra toda clase de totalitarismos.

What People are Saying About This

Anthony Burgess

1984 is a fantasy about disaffected journalists, novelists, poets, professors, and schoolmasters imposing an idealistic philosophy on the countries of the West — amalgamated into the superpower Oceania — which is no more than a notion of the nature of reality forged in an Oxford or Cambridge common room.

V. S. Pritchett

The most solid, the most brilliant thing George Orwell has done.

Alfred Kazin

1984 has been an extraordinary experience for me. It is...overwhelming in its keenness and prophetic power. I hardly know which to praise more -- Orwell's insight into the fate of man and its totalitarianism or his compassion for him.

I'm so glad I didn't buy this version because I had NO clue it was in Spanish. I'd have been so upset to have wasted money on something I couldn't read. So, if you don't read Spanish fluently, buy a different version, like I did! Just thought I'd give you the heads up. :)

I downloaded the sample of this book and it was in Spanish. Nothing on BN wedsite said it was not in English, except for the small print that gives the publisher. Good thing I didn't buy this one. Read the small print folks:)

Not English.

There is no way to know that this book is in Spanish until after you spend money on it. B&N should not allow trickery like this on their site. Do NOT get this book unless you are fluent in Spanish!

Recomendadisimo!! El contenido de este libro es maravilloso. El rating de esta obra esta muy bajo nada mas porque las personas que lo han comprado no sabían que esta escrito en español. Aparentemente Barnes and Noble no había mencionado este detalle importante en su antigua descripción. Así que si estas buscando este libro en español, esta es una obra maestra que deberías tener en tu biblioteca personal. Definitely recommended. The book's content is marvelous. The work's rating is very low only because people who have purchased it did not know it is written in Spanish. Apparently, Barnes and Noble did not mention this important detail in its previous description. So, if you are looking this book in spanish, this is a masterpiece you must have in your personal library.

Very frustrated it is in spanish. Bought it and chalked the loss up to my own stupidity. Looking for the english version, but cannot even find a version in english on the B&N shop!

This book is in Spanish... I didn't realize that until after I purchased it. The only hint beforehand that it gave to being in Spanish was the name of the publisher. The description is in English, which is misleading. So, heads up, it's in Spanish.

Without a doubt a most read book.If you want to take a better look what too much authority can do and without restrains to it , this book will help.Although by the first glance it seems an anarquist favorite book (due to how the author critices the masses),it really pins down the major flaws in Totalitarianism.By the metaphor of a distopia , the author guides us through the life of a piece of the system , a simple man that tries to make ends meet.The cover of the book should have a warning :"This book will change you.PERMANTLY"
