Still a must read! Definitions with variability and the like are the coin of the political realm NOW. Listen carefully. The Thought Police can now use your phone and your a particular brand of television to surveillance you NOW.
This is only an extremely abridged version, which I didn't realize until I finished it and wondered at how short it was. After reading the plot on Wikipedia I found details which weren't mentioned here.
It's a high quality recording and voice acting, but I would have liked to have read the whole book, which I probably won't do now that I know the main spoilers. I've never read the unabridged version so I don't know how much for certain but I'd definitely like to read the full version to find out. I really did enjoy the reading I feel like it may not be all though. It was a very dark story of an oppressive regime, but parts are applicable to us now.
Today's government keeps it's people subjugated by keeping them in slaved by debt and materialism.
But the people are supposed to love the nation big brother keeps us enslaved. Great voice. Stays close to the text. Made my prep work for teaching much easier—able to listen while driving, cooking, etc. This was also my first major audiobook experience—needless to say I will be listening to more in the near future!

Chapters 2: Wonder why? Orwell was a brilliant author and staid observer of the human condition. This book is so insightful, it is almost a cliche. Fascists hate it because it exposes why nationalism and racial pride are both absurd nonsense. Doubleplusgood is doubleplusgood. K10vvn - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - July 3, Subject: Great recording The book is great.
I'm surprised to see it called "poisonous". Peraonally, have held this to be the most beautiful love story I've ever read. I know its not the focus of the book, but its a huge part of the plot.
I would dismiss any negative reviews. Simply look at how no real point is ever made here about why it is bad. So I dismiss any negative reviews in the same manor that they dismiss this book.
Without reason. I wipe my arse with their reviews..
Good recording is more the point Well read. Everybody says there is this RACE problem. The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them. But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white. I hate It's poisonous.
If I could set things alight simply with my gaze, and by casting thoughts of burning hatred, that book would be reduced to nothing but a pile of ashes. I write this as a negative infinity-billion! Brilliant book! This is a fantastic book and also very important. From what i have read,the movie was made to stop people from reading the book. The book has so much more information in it,than the movie.
I find people who dislike this,just dont understand it,its warning and its message.
George Orwell was an genius! Today, I must admit that much of it has come to pass. Very subtly, by allowing fictional characters to repeatedly accept things bordering on the ridiculous, the audience have had the seed sown in each of us that maybe we are out of step with society in some way and they have imperceptibly moulded our thinking to comply. As an example, I am mindful of the majority of pres society considering sex between two people of the same sex, as something abhorrent, rather as we see pedophiles today.
What Orwell did not allow for, was the increased open communication between people that is afforded by the internet. I expect that my email and Facebook pages will be swamped with adverts shaped towards my preferences. Still relevant If you hate this book, you probably love big brother. Just started I just now started to read this.I will use this audio recording when Im at home.
It's poisonous. Few people are married and sex is frowned upon. As so many other reviewers have said, I read this book a while ago and re-reading or listening to it now. This is a great Narration. The reader feels for the couple, wishes them happiness, yet dreads the ultimate outcome of them being caught.
