JULIA A Retelling of George Orwell's 1984

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Louise Brealey

Science Fiction • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Louise Brealey powerfully performs this sci-fi novel, inspired by the novel 1984. In George Orwell's work, Julia serves as a secondary character to Winston, the beleaguered staffer at the Ministry of Truth who is struggling to live under the specter of Big Brother. Newman's audiobook expands the story, capturing the unique struggles of its women, a theme clearly missing in the original work. The result is not simply a retelling of the story from a new point of view. Here, Julia is so fully realized that the listening experience enriches the original work. Brealey doesn't hold back on the intensity required. She delivers the novel's shocking moments, as well as its surprising subtle humor. S.P.C.
