1984 by George Orwell ranked # 13 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.

1984 By George Orwell - Just The Good Stuff Nineteen Eighty-Four (sometimes referred to as 1984) is an allegorical political novel written by George Orwell.

The story takes place in a nightmarish dystopia where the omnipresent State enforces perfect conformity among members of a totalitarian Party through indoctrination, propaganda, fear, and ruthless punishment. The novel introduced the concepts of the ever-present, all-seeing Big Brother, Room 101, the Thought Police, and the bureaucrats' and politicians' language of control, Newspeak.

Some commentators have drawn parallels between today's society and the world of 1984, suggesting that we are starting to live in what has become known as Orwellian society. The novel was successful in terms of sales, and has remained one of the most influential books of the 20th century.

Nineteen Eighty-Four has become a byword in discussions of privacy issues. The term "Orwellian" has come to describe actions or organizations that are thought to be reminiscent of the society depicted in the novel.
