1984
by Orwell, George

England is ruled by a totalitarian government called 'the Party'. Among other things, 'the party' believes who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past. Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth (Minitrue) where he is busy altering the history to suit 'the Party'. He is unhappy and longs for truth and liberty. One day, he meets Julia. He falls for her and together they embark on a journey of love and rebellion which may change their world forever. Orwell's 1984 is a marvel of dystopian fiction. The time when it was it was written has changed and the world has moved on.' But does time ever change and do we really move on? Is it not the same dystopia we always live in? Long before Orwell. Long after 1984
