    Although I don't share Orwell's political orientation, this book is a very interesting look into many of his experiences and reasons for having the views that he does and is useful in understanding his point of view. His experiences are lucidly described and he has very understandable justification for the ideas he holds. I highly enjoyed reading this.

    Excellent collection. Gives a clear insight into Orwell's hardscrabble life and helps explain why he was a champion of the downtrodden. Excellent collection. Gives a clear insight into Orwell's hardscrabble life and helps explain why he was a champion of the downtrodden.

    Prior to say, they told me "1984" was a sort of science - fiction novel (not an interstellar adventure, though) and it isn't. I can divide the book in three corresponding feelings: first part, Winston's ordinary life: a surreal tale, to some extent ridiculous. The funniest part. Whenever Winston meets with julia: it read like "Last tango in Paris", two strangers have sex ... duh? LOL! Winston's time in prison and the final pages of the story: feeling of terror, rage as in the Stephen King's thril Prior to say, they told me "1984" was a sort of science - fiction novel (not an interstellar adventure, though) and it isn't.

Apart from his best known works - 'Animal Farm' and '1984', there are 'Keep the Aspidistra Flying', 'A Clergyman's Daughter', 'Coming up for Air, 'Down and Out in Paris and London', 'Homage to Catalonia' and his essays. In an essay entitled 'Why I Write', he outlines four motives for writing. The fourth is political purpose. Concerning this, he writes that in 'Homage to Catalonia' he tried 'not to violate his literary instincts', but inserted a long chapter that was full of newspaper cuttings. A critic whom he admired chastised him for it, saying he turned a good book into journalism. Orwell justifies what he did, but also acknowledges that the criticism has a point. He goes on to say that 'Animal Farm' was the first book in which he tried to fuse political purpose with artistic purpose (another of his four motives for writing). It's generally acknowledged that this novel is a gem. Simple, but so clever. His efforts at fusing those two motives were clearly very successful. When I read '1984', I wondered why in Chapter 9 of Part 2, 'The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism' was so long. It breaks the narrative. Readers want to know what's going to happen to Winston, not to read the creed that underwrite totalitarianism. Having now read that comment re 'Homage to Catalonia', I'm inclined to think that Orwell did the same, albeit to a lesser extent, in '1984'. In short, he compromised artistic purpose for the sake of political purpose.
