"Nineteen Eighty-Four is 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
"A profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book...Orwell's theory of power is developed brilliantly." -The 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
"Orwell's novel escorts us so quietly, so directly, and so dramatically from our own day to the fate which may be ours in the future, that the experience is a blood-chilling one." -Saturday Review
