1984 is one of those books that frequently gets cited even by people who haven’t read it. Thug Notes will help you pretend like you know what you’re talking about too.
Thug Notes has already covered To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, and Crime & Punishment. George Orwell’s 1984 comes at a perfect time. Far too many people are referencing the novel with regards to the NSA without ever having read it. Sure, this doesn’t count as reading either, but it’s a better synopsis than what your stoned friend told you one night over 4th Meal.
