Item description for 1984 (Biblioteca Juvenil) (Spanish Edition) by George Orwell...

En esta novela encontramos al lider unico cuya presencia es ante todo una abstraccion, la negacion del individuo, la sustraccion de la informacion: el Gran Hermano. Es, al mismo tiempo, una advertencia y un deseo. El autor ha construido una metafora del imaginario social del siglo XX, al describir un pais carcelario, vigilado por un lugar desde donde se ve a el y a todos.

Reviews - What do customers think about 1984 (Biblioteca Juvenil) (Spanish Edition)?

Excelente!  Jul 5, 2009
Libro en español = "review" en español: llegó rápido y en perfecto estado. La factura venía con un agradecimiento en español y en inglés, lo cual me hizo sonreir por el resto del día. ¡Genial! Seguiré comprandoles libros de ahora en adelante.
 
1984  Feb 20, 2008
The words (Planeta Cero) kept bothering me. Thought it was the publisher. I just found out, too late..after it shipped, this book is printed in Spanish, not English. If the language is not English, it should be stated clearly on the main line near the title.
 
could not read it  Feb 13, 2008
Nowhere does it say this book is in Spanish. This was not what we wanted and was no way made clear that it wasn't in English like the other several books we ordered. We paid return shipping and still have seen no balance refund. We order alot from this site but this transaction was not fair.
 
Ironically assigned reading in many public schools  Dec 10, 2004
1984 is extremely influential on the way we as a society label each other and our government with names such as "Big Brother" Orwellian and such. These names like calling someone a Nazi allow us to appear to argue but actually allow us to dodge the real issues. This is fairly ironic considering the origin of such terms. Basically 1984 is set in London in the distopian future. Orwell wrote it in response to Stalin's corrupting the ideals of Socialism. He was a socialist and so was really bothered by that failure.

The plot to 1984 isn't so important as the setting. Basically the story follows Winston Smith. Smith harbors less than perfect views of his environment, for which he will one day be arrested regardless of his actions. Not loving the government (thought crime) is the only crime that is recognized. Hidden cameras and microphones are omnipresent in the city, included mandatory TVs which can't be turned off, only show a single government station and contain hidden cameras through which "thought police" may monitor what is in front of the TV at any time. Social interaction doesn't exist, since that would be considered weird and therefore criminal.

There are three classes of people in London: Inner Party members, Party members like Winston and the proletariate, who aren't watched so closely because they aren't considered human. In this world Winston goes from merely not liking the government to engaging in unusual behavior. He starts by buying decorative antiques at a proletariate shop and progresses to having a girl friend, who he can only meet with in remote country side settings on account of social interaction is not allowed by the government. It is obvious to him that he will one day be taken to the Ministry of Love, a windowless building which handles law enforcement, and never fails at getting thought criminals to love the government.

The novel is always dark. No happy beginning, no happy middle and no happy ending. Still it is important to read it before throwing around terms like "Orwellian" It has been so influential on society that it is required reading - if you want to pass your tenth grade English. Failing to read is a sign of insurgence against the government.
