    I do not remember exactly when I read 1984, possibly on the early Seventies, although last time I read Orwell, was last year, a debate between her and Vera Brittain , and despite my admiration for Orwell, on my opinion he was on the wrong side, I sympathized more with Vera Brittain.

    Best wishes to you. 🙂

      Hello Mr Anaya. At the end of last year when I spent 2 months in Argentina I found 1984 on the bookshelf in my rented apartment. The last time I had read it was in high school, but I found that I really enjoyed reading it again, because it seems to be so prophetic. I didn’t finish it and then came across this audio book version. The narrator reads very well (he creates the atmosphere in his voice, although it’s a little fast in some places, but the audio is over 9 hours, so understandable) so, this is a very good way for me to complete the book. I don’t know much about Orwell himself, nor Vera Britain, but will look into them more now that you bring it up! Amazing book – perfect reading for our current times.

      Best wishes to you too!

    Thank you very much for having given people have the possibility to listen to this famous story. 🙂 It’s a very long time ago when I read it.
    All the best.
