Product Description

Review

[an] arresting adaptation. 4 stars --The Guardian

Well worth catching. --The Times

Dunster (both in his faithful take on the story and in his sometimes extreme but always enthralling adaptation) gets close to the heart of Orwell's warning... 4 stars --The Independent

It's a shame that some people bought this thinking it was the book. It does fairly clearly state that it's a stage play adaptation. It looks very well done with some excellent ideas.

I read this book cover to cover, and it has made me think about how things have changed, and is quite an eye opener.

The product advertisement is misleading. It misses the little detail that the book on sale is the play version of the novel, not the novel itself. Listing title should clarify this. I have no use for this book now and must re-sell. Otherwise it has arrived on time and in the condition specified. The price for the play is good.

The product information is very misleading and resulted in myself (and several others from reading the reviews) buying a play version of the text, not the actual book! Very dissapointing as it is a present.

didnt get to the end...i got bored.
I decided I would culture myself and read some classics. I expected more from this, but it actually bored me.
maybe I expected too much.

It's a play! It's not the book. Did I miss something in the description? I want 1984 unabridged and unaltered as George Orwell intended it to be presented!

Disappointed as the description did not state that this is a play version and the supplier will not pay for postage to return.
