1984 is George Orwell’s classic dystopian nightmare novel – read and loved (or feared) by millions; the date of doom may have passed, but its vision of humanity’s possibly bleak future remains eerily plausible today, and to some readers may appear to already have manifested itself in some respects.
Anyone who likes to think about politics and nations, the way the world works, or the way humanity works, will enjoy this book. It was not written for children by any means, but could still be understood by most middle schoolers.
