George Orwell’s 1984: Download Free Audio Book Version

I first posted this one during the dead of summer, so it seemed worth revisiting this now that we’re all a bit more focused ….

Over at the Internet Archive, you can find George Orwell’s classic, 1984, available as a free audio book. As you’ll see, the recording is professionally done. You can download the full zip file here. Or alternatively you can get the individual mp3 files, or stream them, from this page. On a more permanent basis, you can find Orwell’s 1949 work housed in our Free Audio Book Collection along with lots of other free texts. Or see it on our list of Life Changing Books.

    If you have any concerns, you can head over to the source (, a very reputable site, and then stream (as opposed to download) the file.

    Thanks so much! I can’t tell you how much of a lifesaver you are!!! I have issues reading to myself because I tend to go cross-eyed but I read along well to audio, thanks. :)
