This book makes you think This book talks about a future, not the sci-fi kind but the society at large in the year which is approximately around 1984, of which even the Winston(protagonist) isn't sure.

Classic read This is a must read for any student of politics. At this price, the book was a steal(the quality of the pages were quite good). Flipkart's delivery was in time (bought it using cash-on-delivery). --Ashwin Sudhakar Jan 4, 2012
I read this book partly due to the hype surrounding it on online forums/news aggregators (it's number two on Reddit's favorite books). But I should say that I am quite disappointed. The book has a single core idea which could be explained in a few words. Instead of doing this, Orwell wrote a whole novel in which he revisits the idea then and there. I found this incredibly boring - 2/5. Now as for the book itself, the binding is decent and would easily survive a few reads. The printing is clear and legible for the price. --Mr.Kumar Dec 17, 2011 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
