Publisher's Summary

War Is Peace! Freedom Is Slavery! Ignorance Is Strength! Big Brother is watching and listening. Yep, we’re talking propaganda, the fabrication of “truth”, the outlawing of dissent, the distortion of reality, endless war… and of course, thought crime. No we’re not talking about the goings on on 2011, were talking about the 1949 NBC University Theater’s adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984. This production originally aired on August 27, 1949, but is available today for your listening enjoyment. This is the very first adaptation of 1984 and it stars David Niven!

Worth the buy, but get the unabridged book.

If you've never read the book this is a good taste of what's to come. The story really gets you thinking and it's well worth the buy. I'd still settle for the book though.

Love it

Very well done. I liked the drama that goes along with it. It was like listening to classic radio theater. Great story as well. I will be getting the full audio book soon.
