Reviews

'Right up there among my favourite books...I read it again and again.' Margaret Atwood 'The book of the twentieth century...haunts us with an ever-darker relevance.' Independent 'A profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book...Orwell's theory of power is developed brilliantly.' New Yorker 'A book that goes through the reader like an east wind, cracking the skin...Such are the originality, the suspense, the speed of writing and withering indignation that it is impossible to put the book down.' V. S. Pritchett 'A remarkable book; as a virtuoso literary performance it has a sustained brilliance that has rarely been matched in other works of its genre...It is as timely as the label on a poison bottle.' New York Herald Tribune
