Arguably the 20th century's most famous novel, 1984 is a dystopian study of political tyranny, mind control, paranoia and secret mass surveillance. Set in Oceania, the ultimate totalitarian state, it describes a society tyrannized by a ruling party led by Big Brother. In the furtherance of eradicating all expressions of individuality, people's lives are constantly monitored. Telescreens are everywhere, helicopters hover around buldings, spyiig through windows, and the Thought Police are constantly on alert. Despite the threat of severe punishment, Outer Party Member Winston Smith takes a break from his job rewriting history. At home, in the one corner of his apartment that is hidden from the telescreen, he sits down to write a diary. The cultural impact of Geoge Orwell's masterpiece continues to resonate to thsi day.
