Publisher's Summary

From the age of uniformity.
From the age of solitude and doublethink.
From the age of Big Brother.
From me, Winston Smith.
Greetings.

It’s 1984, and life has changed beyond recognition. Airstrip One, formerly known as Great Britain, is a place where Big Brother is always watching, and nobody can hide. Except, perhaps, for Winston Smith. Whilst working at the Ministry of Truth, rewriting history, he secretly dreams of freedom. And in a world where love and sex are forbidden, where it’s hard to distinguish between friend and foe, he meets Julia and O’Brien and vows to rebel.

Starring Andrew Garfield as Winston, Cynthia Erivo as Julia, Andrew Scott as the alluring, mysterious O’Brien, and featuring Tom Hardy as Big Brother, Audible presents a new dramatization of George Orwell’s classic tale. An immersive listening experience like none you’ve heard before, at a time when it has all never felt more chillingly relevant.

Featuring a haunting original score composed by Muse’s lead singer and songwriter Matthew Bellamy and Ilan Eshkeri, recorded by the London Metropolitan Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, the production is directed by BAFTA Award winner Destiny Ekaragha, produced in Dolby Atmos by Granny Eats Wolf, and dramatised by Olivier Award nominated writer Joe White.

Also starring Chukwudi Iwuji, Romesh Ranganathan, Natasia Demetriou, Francesca Mills, Alex Lawther and Katie Leung.

Featuring Ian Abeysekera, Rachel Atkins, Grace Baker, Joanna Brookes, Clare Corbett, Doug Devaney, Imogen Front, Sam Garioch, Raj Ghatak, Frances Jeater, Mason Moore, Yasmin Mwanza, Harry Myers, Kaelum Nelson, John Sackville, Sienna Sangha, Sam Stafford, Jo Troy, Jenny White, Sarah Whitehouse & Alix Wilton Regan

This adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984 is an immersive listening experience, containing scenes that some may find uncomfortable. Listener discretion is advised.

Available in Dolby Atmos.

Stellar cast, Chilling performance

Andrew Garfield and Andrew Scott were absolutely brilliant; they showed what power an audio performance can have and what talented voice actors they are! This audio production of 1984 presented the dystopian world, the fear of thought crime, and lack of control and collective amnesia among the people so so well. Tom Hardy saying, "Big Brother is watching you" sent chills.

I would warn though, that the sounds of panic, death, inhumane activities have been added in the audiobook so disturbing content is there. However, everything is hauntingly relevant and George Orwell's 1984 is an analogy of our current world.

only the music and the dialect

the story was really shabby not worth it with an even shabbier ending the story line could have been way better especially after a good first half

Captivating

A big thank you to audible for this book. George Orwell is relevant more than ever in today's world. the story of course is outstanding in its horror and spine chillingly real. the production was outstanding. It transported me to this bleak world. the acting was also great. I did feel that Andrew Garfield overdid it a bit in parts. especially in early chapters with first interacting with Julia. but his genuine fear, defiance and pain completely made up for it in the end.

Mesmerising !

One of the best productions ever. Thoroughly enjoyed the music, the tension and the true essence of this amazing novel. The best part to me was O’Brien’s character which Mr. Scott did so well and so maturely. Mr. Garfield as Winston Smith has portrayed the combination of doubt and confidence in a marvellous way. Loved the whole listening experience. Highly recommended!

'outstanding' is an understanding

One of the best dramatised audio books I've heard. Andrew Garfield's voice performance is mind-blowing. literally got goosebumps in the last chapter. Amazingggg.
