(0) George Orwell wrote 1984 in 1949 . 0 The dystopian novel is set in 1984 - Orwell ' s near future and our recent past - but the novel is still relevant today , due to its depiction of a totalitarian government and its themes of using media manipulation and advanced technology to control people . 1


(1) Winston Smith lives in London , but not the London we know . 2 Instead of being a part of England , 1984 ' s London is part of Oceania , one of the three huge governments that exist in the book ' s world . 3 Oceania is controlled by a powerful and mysterious elite . 4 The government , referred to as ' Big Brother , ' uses cameras and listening devices to constantly observe all of its citizens . 5 There is also a secret police force dedicated to reporting both rebellious thoughts and general misbehavior to the appropriate authorities . 6


(2) For the most part , Winston is a typical cog in the machine . 7 He works at the Ministry of Truth , but he has a very low-ranking position . 8 His job is tedious and involves altering records to promote the government ' s version of history . 9


(3) Winston has a few problems with the government . 10 To begin with , he does not buy into all of the propaganda he is fed . 11 Some of the things he reads or hears contradict with his memories . 12 For example , the government claims that they are at war against Eurasia , but Winston remembers being at war with Eastasia . 13


(4) Winston also has a vision : he does not want to live under such a repressive government . 14 He commits tiny acts of rebellion . 15 He starts to keep a diary , and he begins to look for allies . 16 This is a dangerous task , since Big Brother is always watching . 17


(5) Despite his desire to rebel , Winston thinks he will be discovered soon by the Thought Police , the secret police force that searches for and punishes members of society that dare to even question how the government is run . 18 The Thought Police also run a fake underground resistance in an attempt to discover rebellious Party members . 19


(6) Then , Winston meets Julia at work . 20 Despite the danger of exposing himself to a potentially fake rebel , Winston reveals his true thoughts to Julia . 21 Julia turns out to be a rebel , too . 22 The two start an affair , which is illegal in their country , especially because Julia is a member of the Junior Anti-Sex League . 23 Winston and Julia share a mutual dream of a world free from war and oppression . 24


(7) O ' Brien , another rebel , befriends Winston and Julia . 25 He invites them over to his place . 26 Unfortunately , O ' Brien turns out to be one of the Thought Police working undercover . 27 He has spent the last seven years watching Winston for rebellious tendencies . 28 O ' Brien busts them with the help of Mr . Charrington , a man from whom Winston and Julia rented a secret room to conduct their affair . 29


(8) Winston and Julia are separated , and Winston is tortured . 30 Winston resists all the torture until he is sent to Room 101 where O ' Brien straps a cage of rats to his head . 31 Winston , terrified of rats , begs O ' Brien to torture Julia instead . 32 O ' Brien stops torturing Winston . 33 In fact , he even releases him back into society . 34 By making Winston betray Julia , O ' Brien succeeded in destroying his spirit . 35 Grateful at being released , Winston is completely recommitted to Big Brother and no longer has any feelings for Julia . 36
