A Must Read...

This is a must read for people for it is coming true right in front of our eyes.

This is why I love dystopian fiction!

This book is so good, it reminds me why I love science fiction, and especially dystopian fiction. Scary how relevant it feels to today.

My own fault. Did not read specs enough that it was in Portuguese instead of English. Otherwise, w

My fault.

Bad condition

It’s such a amazing book. But received it in horrible condition. Barely was holding together.

A Relevant Masterpiece

I sit roughly 20-25 pages from finishing this book and i am dumbfounded by the predictions made by Orwell. The man outlined a dystopic hell that unfortunately reflects much of our society today. This book is essential reading in my mind, while it may be rough at a few points (notably towards the end of Part 2), it still paints such a vivid picture of the horrors of fascist, totalitarian regimes and their effects on the victims forced to live through them. Orwell writes in this informative, hard hitting, critical prose through Winston from time to time, leading to these beautifully hateful passages of scathing criticism for Oceania. Its in these moments where 1984 really hits its stride of making you feel the hate for The Party, and Big Brother, and Oceania and whatever else Winston rants about. It's in these moments when 1984 truly cements itself as a classic piece of literature. (8/10) The book has many standout quotes, but I'll leave you with my favorite and the one that convinced me to finally buy and read it, "Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been re-written, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been re-named, every date has been altered. And this process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except and endless present in which the party is always right"

Condition unacceptable

Absolutely awful condition. Racist notes inside book. Very disappointed with purchase

Never Received my order

I’m pretty mad I ordered this book at the beginning of May and still have not received it. Tracking says they sent it back to sender bc of insufficient address but I received 2 other books I ordered in the same purchase. N there’s no info on how to get in touch with anybody😡😡😡

All marked up

I ordered a copy in very good condition and it is all marked up, written all over in pen and highlighted all throughout. I'm very disappointed with it.

The book I ordered was 1984

First time buyer here and this is definitely where I am going to be buying my books from now on. So far I have ordered 4 books and I bought them in "good condition" and "very good condition" and the all were in the condition I chose.

Speechless

Book was delivered in a timely manner and was in good condition. A few marks/notes here and there. The story was amazing and some what a page turner. Scary how many things can be said are happening today…

Best Hackers

CYBERCREDITGURU has been amazing to work with! They have creative, knowledgeable professional hackers that make the entire process a great experience. I am a widow with 3 children. I started working with CYBERCREDITGURU two years ago when I had a very poor credit score of 403, with negatives, late payments and evictions. I couldn’t afford a loan to even pay off my basic bills for the up keep of my children. Life was so terrible then. I came across a highly rated reviews about them online and I contacted them on CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM and phone/text: +1 (650) 439 0624. Lo and behold they got my FICO score raised to 805 and every other negative item cleared within 6 days after following all instructions. Last week I contacted them again for my daughter’s school grade and they got it upgraded excellently within 3 days. I recommend CYBERCREDITGURU to all who have hacking related issues. They are the BEST!

Don’t sell your classroom noted through books

This “good” quality book was full of adolescent underlining and goofy notes. This is unreadable for me cause I can’t help but be reminded of how foolish I was as a teenager and can’t focus on the Orwell text

Wrong format sent

I ordered a hard cover and received a paperback.

A Classic read for today!!

This book was written before I was born, but I wished that I had read it much sooner in my life. It could be so true in the short future ahead in our world. I wish everybody would take the time to read this short mind stimulating book.

Deceptive label

I purchased 1984 which was listed as "Very Good Condition" and when my daughter opened it up a few days ago most of the book was underlined with writing in the margin. The book should have been listed as 'acceptable'. I was disappointed. I have seen reviews with similar complaints but had not experienced it myself until now.

I've only read Chapter 1 but I already know I'll enjoy it

I started reading BNW by Huxley when I realized I never read 1984! The beginning of BNW & 1984 are similar. I'm sure itll get better as I read. I also have seen the film ,1984, but for BNW. Overall, I recommend if you havent read already.

This should have been labeled as acceptable.

I would have expected something labeled as “good” to be in a little bit of a better condition than this. The cover is very worn, the spine is falling apart, and the pages are quite yellowed.

5 stars for the book only but not the quality of the book I received.

Aside from the book being an excellent read I was very disappointed with the quality of the book I received. I order a book in very good condition and I received a book with someone's name written on the front and most pages in the first half of the book covered in writing and other marks. There was so much writing and markings it made trying to read it very unpleasant. The only good thing was that my money was refunded when I complained. That said, I still don't have a "very good condition" copy like I wanted.

Grim

Disturbing in a way that makes you want to keep reading.

The book came in great condition

There was no writing, no missing pages, or missing front and back cover.

A Must Read for Anyone in Today's Society

1984 is a shocking story and one that every reader, young and old should know. This book opens your eyes to subtle hints today made in the real world. Your eyes will be opened in a new way after finishing this. It's almost scary how accurate it is.

5 stars for the book cover and 1 for the condition

The book itself is going to be a great read based off a few pages but the condition it is in is honestly awful. There are so many words written in it and there are paragraphs slashed out with black marker it’s like a conspiracy theorist went to town on this book. But overall it is a good book but the condition sucks.

Great book

Came in really great condition & is obviously a book that everyone should read at least once in their life.

Book condition

Bought in gc however the book could be vgc or like new condition. Nice

Must have

Must have classic for all dystopian fans. The book that puts Nostradamus to shame accurately describing American Life in 2020 lol.

Double plus good

Timeless classic

This is a wonderful, although depressing, book. I bought it for my granddaughter for Christmas because it was on her list. However, I did not pay attention to the rating as far as scolastic rating and it is far too simple for her. That is my only problem with the book. I do not recall if that was clearly explained in the ordering process. But that has nothing to do with the story which is amazing. It was much more alarming when I first read it in 1962, however, than it is now.

Deviates corrected for their own good

In a society that has eliminated many imbalances, surplus goods, and even class struggle, there are bound to be deviates; Winston Smith is one of those. He starts out, due to his inability to doublethink, with thoughtcrime. This is in a society that believes a thought is as real as the deed. Eventually he graduates through a series of misdemeanors to illicit sex and even plans to overthrow the very government that took him in as an orphan. If he gets caught, he will be sent to the "Ministry of Love" where they have a record of 100% cures for this sort of insanity. They will even forgive his past indiscretions. Be sure to watch the three different movies made from this book: 1984 (1954) Peter Cushing is Winston Smith 1984 (1956) Edmond O'Brien is Winston Smith Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) John Hurt is Winston smith 1984 Actors: Edmond O'Brien, Jan Sterling

This Book is Awesome!

In a time when the government has enough power to control the past, present and future, in a time where you don't even have the right to think freely, in a time when the government can see and hear your every move, how can you fight to free yourself? 1984 by George Orwell is a classic novel which describes the journey of one person and his struggle to gain freedom of body and mind. Winston, a middle aged man lives as most others do, controlled by the supreme leader known as "Big Brother" and the political party supporting him. The party is powerful enough to control the past and therefore shape and create the future. As a lower level employee for the Ministry of Truth, (one of three regions in the party) Winston is required to rewrite articles and printings which contradict any declarations made by the party. While he knows that he is indeed rewriting the past, he is only slowly coming to the realization that the party and "Big Brother" are merely seeking power and supremacy. This is an amazing story which kept me hooked right from the beginning. Orwell has seen into the future of our society and shown us what our world could be like when a government has too much power. You are able to jump into Winston's mind and begin to feel the same hatred and resentment towards Big Brother as he does. I definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy a crazy story with many ups and downs that literally keeps you guessing until the last sentence. Remember, Big Brother is watching you!
