In the book 1984, George Orwell takes us on an adventure into a dystopian future. The story follows Winston Smith, who lives in a totalitarian state ruled by Big Brother and his Party.
Winston’s life is controlled by this regime: he lives in a city called London, which is surrounded by a wall that keeps its citizens from leaving. Everyone is watched by cameras at all times, and there are no personal freedoms whatsoever.
As the story progresses, Winston begins questioning the Party’s ideology and starts seeing things differently than before—to the point where he becomes attracted to Julia, another citizen who has similar views as him.
Their journey together takes them from London to rural areas outside of the city limits, where they plan to overthrow Big Brother and his regime. However, their plans are thwarted at every turn—and they find themselves living in constant fear of being caught by the omnipresent eyes of Big Brother.
