Description

An unabridged recording of Orwell's brilliant first novel read by Allan Corduner. The story is largely based on Orwell's own experiences as a police officer in Burma. Set in the dying days of the Raj, it depicts the harshness and darker side of colonial rule. And at its centre is John Flory, a lone individual hopelessly trapped in a vast political system; themes which set the agenda for much of his writing. Burmese Days was Orwell's first novel, and was issued in 1934 in America, then a year later in the UK where there had been fears and controversy initially that the material could be libellous.

Excellent audio-book

A brilliant, informative and critical narrative of the everyday brutality of British imperialism. I couldn't stop listening.

Superb

Superbly written and read. A great listen during these dismal times. Orwell has quickly become one of my favourite writers.

a classic description of British burma

A masterful description of British Burma based on the writer's own experiences as a police officer in the British Burma. Surprisingly fresh, dealing with themes such as colonialism, racism, social norms, class and gender, the book has a lot to offer for contemporary readers. The performance was good though it would be nice to have a separate voice for the female charathers.

Excellent

The story is rather dark but excellently written and gives a good account of the colonial society (and their absurd ways).
The speaker is excellent and I only can recommend the book especially to those who like George Orwell or travel or have traveled to Myanmar!
