1984Audiobook CD - 2007
1984 depicts a gray world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, quashing freedom in a totalitarian world, where news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live by rote. Dissidents are disciplined into being willing tools of their masters. Winston Smith lives in this social system where surveillance, brainwashing, and execution are the state's tools for erasing personal will. His foray into passion ends with his arrest by the Thought Police and challenges him to be a hero.
