George Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London

“A truly extraordinary book, in my opinion the greatest...”

Written on: 08/01/2007 by Kevin Unitt (6 reviews written)

Orwell manages to raise the very real issues of poverty and social class - and of society's pecking order - yet does it in a warm, funny and engaging way which feels as far away from a lecture as could be.

George Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London (Essential.penguin S.): It was a while ago that I read it, but it is a very amusing description of living on no money in 1930 London and Paris, cockroaches and waiter's jobs. Not deeply meaningful, and only a day or two's reading, but very good… Read Full Review
