Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso y su cometido es reescribir los angeles historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera los angeles versión oficial de los hechos. Hasta que come to a decision replantearse l. a. verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.
La crítica ha dicho...
«Aquí ya no estamos solo ante lo que habitualmente reconocemos como "literatura" e identificamos con los angeles buena escritura. Aquí estamos, repito, ante energía visionaria. Y no todas las visiones se refieren al futuro, o al Más Allá.»

«La libertad es una obligación tan dolorosa que siempre habrá quien prefiera rendirse. l. a. virtud de libros como 1984 es su capacidad para recordarnos que los angeles libertad de los seres humanos responsables no es igual a los angeles de los animales.»
«Desde El proceso de Kafka ninguna obra fantástica ha alcanzado el horror lógico de 1984.»
«Un libro magnífico y profundamente interesante.»
