1984 by George Orwell
Winston Smith, a member of the Outer Party, works in the Ministry of Truth. He rewrites and distorts history. Big Brother is the conceptual leader of the party. To escape Big Brother’s tyranny, at least inside his own mind, Winston begins a diary. The act is punishable by death. But Winston is determined to remain human under inhuman circumstances. Telescreens are placed everywhere — in home, in office, in restaurants, in bathrooms. No place is safe. Winston and Julia, a dark-haired girl from the Fiction Department, fall in love. They believe that the love and loyalty can never be taken away from them, even under the worst circumstances. Winston and Julia begin their allegiance against the Party. O’Brien, a leader close to Big Brother, tries to change Winston’s way of thinking. O’Brien tries to employ two opposing ideas in Winston’s mind. He wants Winston to believe that 2 + 2 = 5. But Winston is rebellious. O’Brien takes Winston to Room 101, the most dreaded room of all in the Ministry of Love, the place where human meets his greatest fear... One of the world's great classics. Complete and unabridged.
ANIMAL FARM by GEORGE ORWELL
Animal Farm was Orwell's first highly successful novel (the second being 1984). It was published on the heels of World War II, in England in 1945 and in the United States in 1946. Orwell personifies the animals in the tradition of allegory so that they symbolize real historical figures. Animal Farm is also a powerful satire. Orwell uses irony to undermine the tenets of totalitarianism, specifically that of Stalinism. Though he agreed with many Marxist principles, Orwell was unable to accept the communist interpretation of socialism because he saw many similarities between the communist governments and the previous czarist regimes in old Russia. Communism, he thought, was inherently hypocritical. One of the world's most read classics. Complete and unabridged text with introduction.

LEO TOLSTOY- Selected Stories
Leo Tolstoy — a genius whose greatness has been obscured from us rather than enhanced by his duality; a realist who strove to demolish the mysticism of Christianity, and became himself a mystic in the contemplation of nature. The derivation of Tolstoy's fiction from the classical school of Russian realism begun by Pushkin can hardly be doubted. Unlike Dostoevsky, who creates a world of his own in the image of the real world, Tolstoy accepts the real world, and his picture of it is fresh and interesting because he sees so much more of it than his readers, but its commonplaces, observed through the prism of his imagination, take on new meaning. That is, he is able to perceive genuine poetry in the average which so often embodies the reality of man's dreams and hopes. In this volume we present a selection of long and short stories by Leo Tolstoy. All stories are complete & unabridged. Paperback: 384 pages Language: English ISBN-13: 9788176060509 Package Dimensions: 21 x 14 x 2.4 cm Price Rs 180. Special offer: Rs 144
