by George Orwell
Probably the most influential novel of the twentieth century, 1984 has been described as chilling, absorbing, satirical, momentous, prophetic and terrifying. Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. This 2-week book talk examines how science fiction has influenced today's society and culture. The discussions are led by Cynthia Hanagud.
