1984: The Graphic Novel
About this deal
Your life is worthless, forfeit, crushed. You are the dead; and the only future you can look forwards to is the underside of das boot, forever crushing down on your head. Seems like Orwell himself was frightened by the ending his novel had, worrying for posterity and warning them to not pass by easily.
Im letzten Jahr durfte ich bereits "Farm der Tiere" und "1984" von George Orwell auf meinen Kanälen vorstellen, woraufhin ich viele Nachrichten von Lesern erhalten habe, die sich anschließend die Weltklassiker gekauft, gelesen und meine Gedanken geteilt haben. Anyhow, Winston Smith connects with a female from the Fiction Department named Julia in a way that we may view as strange, but this society is abnormal. They join the Brotherhood that revolts against the tyrannical establishment, but we soon learn what happens when residents of this society go against this tyrannical establishment and what the ultimately punishment happens to be.

It's the 75th year of Independence for the world's largest democracy 'Happy Independence Day'; and Ironically I'm reading the graphical adaptation of 1984. The titular year has come and gone, and the world is moving towards more freedoms & progress. But in some ways you could say we have less freedom & progress. We are seemingly headed towards an amalgamation of 1984 7 Aldous Huxley's Brave New World; with some Fahrenheit 451 added to the mix. Ein Buch, das vor allem zum Hinterfragen einlädt und hoffentlich dazu animiert, sich zu fragen, in was für einer Gesellschaft wir leben möchten. Julia serves as a character foil to Winston, as Orwell compares and contrasts their political philosophies and their styles of resistance. For example, Winston believes that the Party must be resisted and overthrown, but Julia thinks it’s better to evade its authority while pretending to acquiesce to it. Winston, frustrated, tells her she’s “only a rebel from the waist down,” which she takes as a compliment.
Winston Smith ist Bewohner von Ozeanien und Mitarbeiter im Ministerium der Wahrheit, wo er für die Berichtigung der Vergangenheit zuständig ist. Ozeanien ist ein totalitärer Überwachungsstaat und wird von der Partei geleitet, dem sogenannten *Großen Bruder*. Auf Teleschirmen werden jegliches Verhalten und Äußerungen eines jeden Bewohners überwacht. Hinzu kommt die Einführung einer eigenen Sprache: Neusprech.

The setting of 1984 is a dystopia: an imagined world that is far worse than our own, as opposed to a utopia, which is an ideal place or state. Other dystopian novels include Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, and Orwell's own Animal Farm.
In 1984, George Orwell's dystopian masterpiece, the world has been split up into three super-states: In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called the Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.When George Orwell wrote 1984, the year that gives the book its title was still almost 40 years in the future. Some of the things Orwell imagined that would come to pass were the telescreen, a TV that observes those who are watching it, and a world consisting of three megastates rather than hundreds of countries. In the novel, the country of Eastasia apparently consists of China and its satellite nations; Eurasia is the Soviet Union; and Oceania comprises the United States, the United Kingdom, and their allies.
