 1984 by George Orwell: A searchable online version at The Literature Network
In both ‘1984’ and ‘Fahrenheit 451,’ both the authors use their main character as a platform to show their views; essentially on society and the possibility of a dictatorial government if their power is abused, although these two protagonists exist in very different settings, both of which are highly controlled by the government.
Each man the image of every other; then all are happy.” What is noticeable is that both main characters are, in a sense, liberated by the end of the novel and have a dramatic change in their lifestyles and the way they think and act, through certain acts of the government.
1984 can most definitely be interpreted as an incitement against communism; the Cold War ever-present at the time of writing; 1984 has a devastatingly dictatorial regime running, with the ‘Thought Police’ representing the brutal Nazi Gestapo Police with overruling power and an iron fist.

1984 is such the classic that to this day people are referencing the story that haven't read the book.
Perhaps less relevant as a prophecy today (1984 has come and gone and no dictatorship has arisen to consolidate the Americas and the United Kingdom into a single communist entity), 1984 remains a very real piece of culture, with its own voice in the way it challenges one's preconceived notions and ideals.
My English teacher perhaps said it best, when comparing 1984 to Animal Farm: "Animal Farm hits you with gloves on; 1984 just smacks you bare-fisted." And it's no slap, no half-hearted jab; it is an in-your-face, force of a moving train blow to the jaw from which the reader reels for weeks, even months after.

 SparkNotes: 1984: Context
1984 is one of Orwell’s best-crafted novels, and it remains one of the most powerful warnings ever issued against the dangers of a totalitarian society.
Unlike a utopian novel, in which the writer aims to portray the perfect human society, a novel of negative utopia does the exact opposite: it shows the worst human society imaginable, in an effort to convince readers to avoid any path that might lead toward such societal degradation.
Yet 1984 remains an important novel, in part for the alarm it sounds against the abusive nature of authoritarian governments, but even more so for its penetrating analysis of the psychology of power and the ways that manipulations of language and history can be used as mechanisms of control.

and about Animal Farm...well, imagine that you are in your English Literature class, at University, and the teacher says that the end of the book is optimistic cos you feel so liberated when you find out that you are opressed again...no comment...she was so stupid...
1984 will always be a classic and I think now would be a more relevant time than ever to read the book.
