Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

'Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'  

Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. 

Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. 

In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow worker, Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

Peter Capaldi

Capaldi’s narration is incredible. I enjoyed this highly, and this is definitely the version of the book to get.

Unsettling Story about the dark human mind

I'm wondering whether George Orwell picked the topic up in his times, or whether he did sense it, or whether he was a visionary... maybe all of it is true. A capturing, unsettling story, that will undoubtly make you question what the reality of truth is. Picturesquely described and wonderfully narrated. A must hear in everyone's lifetime. This story can be life changing.
