Extra Blog Extra… (or: Big Brother is Watching You)

An LW Blog first: An extra Extra… (it’s Ed Glinert again… scroll down for his other Sunday special.)

“George Orwell’s 1984 is a bleak portrayal of a nightmare world in which a brutal totalitarian government keeps tabs on its citizens at all times, ruthlessly stamping out any form of dissent.

Er, not quite.”

(Stick with him, folks. The boy knows his stuff. LW Blog Ed.)

1984 is one of the funniest novels ever written, the sharpest of satires, but its humour is so black, so subtle, it is missed by most readers. Yes, this is a most misunderstood book, but it won’t be if you come on the Big Brother Is Watching You walk this Sunday morning (May 10th). We meet outside Oxford Circus station, Exit 6, telescreen or not, at 10.45a.m.”
