From Wikipedia:
"Nineteen Eighty-Four", sometimes published as "1984", is a dystopian novel by George Orwell published in 1949.
As literary political fiction and dystopian science-fiction, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic novel in content, plot, and style. Many of its terms and concepts, such as "Big Brother", "doublethink", "thoughtcrime", "Newspeak", "Room 101", "Telescreen", "2 + 2 = 5", and "memory hole", have entered everyday use since its publication in 1949. Moreover, Nineteen Eighty-Four popularised the adjective Orwellian, which describes official deception, secret surveillance, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state.

Awards:
In 2005, the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005.
It was awarded a place on both lists of Modern Library 100 Best Novels, reaching number 13 on the editor's list, and 6 on the readers' list.
In 2003, the novel was listed at number 8 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.
