En el año 1984 Londres es una ciudad lúgubre en los angeles que los angeles Policía del Pensamiento controla de forma asfixiante l. a. vida de los ciudadanos. Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso y su cometido es reescribir l. a. historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera los angeles versión oficial de los hechos. Hasta que make a decision replantearse los angeles verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.

La crítica ha dicho...

Umberto Eco
