This isn’t even funny any more. We’ve just finished erecting a brand new, really tall skyscraper — the Freedom Tower — and it’s right there in New York City where the police department works with the C.I.A. and has cameras on every lamppost. I feel so free.
In a totalitarian world at war, with Big Brother watching and the Thought Police on his heels, Winston Smith clings stubbornly to his vision of a different future. What starts as an act of rebellion and hope rapidly unravels in a nightmare of doomed love, personal betrayal and the terrors of Room 101.
