GEORGE ORWELL RELEASED ‘NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR’ THIS DATE IN 1949

On this day in 1949 George Orwell released his dystopian novel “Nineteen Eighty- Four.” I am not going to give a review of this book- most of you have read it or are very familiar with it. A few years ago upon reading it I was a little amazed at how Orwell got so much right about our times-  considering he wrote this nearly seventy years ago. The book has sold well over the years and in recent months zoomed back up the charts after the Trump presidency and ‘alternative facts’ became such an issue.  I may just pull it off the shelf and give it another read.

  1. I read it maybe 5 years ago- it was happening then- didn’t have to take Donald Trump to have it kick in.
