George Orwell's novel 1984
I wrote about George Orwell on 2007_jan_21 on behalf of his birthday. On 2007_june_06 I wrote about Orwell's neighborhood covered in spy-cameras.
April the 4th, 1984. To the past, or to the future. To an age when thought is free. From the Age of Big Brother, from the Age of the Thought Police, from a dead man...
Best is to buy this great book. But the complete text of this novel can also be obtained here. Even watching the video on DVD is possible.
Another way is to listen to an audio-book. If there is need I can upload one read by Richard Matthews for ya. It is 45 chapters of approx 15 minutes. I will make three files of 95MB each (bitrate about 67kbs, good listening quality).
01/45 - Introduction to '1984' by George Orwell
02/45 - Suddenly he began writing in sheer panic
03/45 - Momentarily he caught O'Brien's eye
04/45 - Parsons was Winston's fellow employee and so on.
Example of the the first part can be optained in the comment.
If there are no (or not enough) requests before april_4 I will just leave it to this message. I will not make your comments public.
For a limited time the links to this 30hrs audiobook are in the comments.
When you asked please give a reply again. Will not make it public (again).
Links (for the time being).
Replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
Pass to extract the files : 080403
All files are 90MB, 'cause they are only in low bitrate 67kbits mono. But good for text.
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
