Happy book birthday to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, which was published on this day in 1949.
The dystopian novel has aged well, in the sense that it's widely admired to this day.
And, as seen on the earliest reviews that Literary Hub excerpted, it wasn't one of those now-classic novels that needed time to win critics over.
Read passages from the first reviews of Nineteen Eighty-Four at Lit Hub.
