By George Orwell

«No creo que los angeles sociedad que he descrito en 1984 necesariamente llegue a ser una realidad, pero sí creo que puede llegar a existir algo parecido», escribía Orwell después de publicar su novela. Corría el año 1948, y los angeles realidad se ha encargado de convertir esa pieza -entonces de ciencia ficción- en un manifiesto de l. a. realidad.

En el año 1984 Londres es una ciudad lúgubre en los angeles que l. a. Policía del Pensamiento controla de forma asfixiante los angeles vida de los ciudadanos. Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso y su cometido es reescribir l. a. historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera los angeles versión oficial de los hechos. Hasta que come to a decision replantearse los angeles verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Aquí ya no estamos solo ante lo que habitualmente reconocemos como "literatura" e identificamos con l. a. buena escritura. Aquí estamos, repito, ante energía visionaria. Y no todas las visiones se refieren al futuro, o al Más Allá.»
Umberto Eco

«Entre mis libros favoritos, lo leo una y otra vez.»
Margaret Atwood

«No es difícil pensar que Orwell, en 1984, estuviera imaginando un futuro para l. a. generación de su hijo, un mundo del que deseaba prevenirles.»
Thomas Pynchon

«La libertad es una obligación tan dolorosa que siempre habrá quien prefiera rendirse. los angeles virtud de libros como 1984 es su capacidad para recordarnos que los angeles libertad de los seres humanos responsables no es igual a l. a. de los animales.»
Anthony Burgess

«Desde El proceso de Kafka ninguna obra fantástica ha alcanzado el horror lógico de 1984
Arthur Koestler

«Un libro magnífico y profundamente interesante.»
Aldous Huxley

The Virginian (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)

The western is certainly one of America’s most vital and influential contributions to international tradition. And it was once Owen Wister’s The Virginian, first released in 1902, that created the primary archetypes of personality, environment, and motion that also dominate western fiction and movie.   

The Virginian's characters comprise: The hero, tall, taciturn, and unflappable, convinced in his abilities, cautious of his honor, mysterious in his heritage; the heroine, the “schoolmarm from the East,” devoted to civilizing the untamed city, yet prepared to evolve to its ways—up to some extent; and the villain, who's a liar, a thief, a killer, and worst of all, a coward underneath his bluster. Its setting—the lonely small city in the course of the great, empty, harmful yet overwhelmingly attractive landscape—plays so an important a job that it can be considered as one of many basic characters. And its action—the farm animals roundup, the trap of the rustlers, the agonizing ethical offerings demanded by way of “western justice,” and the climactic shoot-out among hero and villain—shaped the plots of the millions of books and flicks that undefined.

Sample text

These were words of wisdom. T. bought the wheels. Each one consists of a hub with many stout spokes. Each spoke telescopes in five sections. On the end is a squat foot, rubber tread on the bottom, swiveling on a ball joint. As the wheels roll, the feet plant themselves one at a time, almost glomming into one continuous tire. If you surf over a bump, the spokes retract to pass over it. If you surf over a chuckhole, the robo-prongs plumb its asphalty depths. Either way, the shock is thereby absorbed, no thuds, smacks, vibrations, or clunks will make their way into the plank or the Converse hightops with which you tread it.

Perhaps older and younger siblings. But then they come down the escalator and disappear into the crowd and become part of the Street, where there are enough Clints and Brandys to found a new ethnic group. 46 NEAL STEPHENSON The Street is fairly busy. Most of the people here are Americans and Asians—it’s early morning in Europe right now. Because of the preponderance of Americans, the crowd has a garish and surreal look about it. For the Asians, it’s the middle of the day, and they are in their dark blue suits.

Beneath this image, it is possible to see Hiro’s eyes, which look Asian. They are from his mother, who is Korean by way of Nippon. The rest of him looks more like his father, who was African by way of Texas by way of the Army—back in the days before it got split up into a number of competing organizations such as General Jim’s Defense System and Admiral Bob’s National Security. Four things are on the cargo pallet: a bottle of expensive beer from the Puget Sound area, which Hiro cannot really afford; a long sword known in Nippon as a katana and a short sword known as a wakizashi—Hiro’s father looted these from Japan after World War II went atomic—and a computer.
