Description

A graphic and biting polemic that still holds a fierce political relevance and impact despite being written over half a century ago. First published in 1937 it charts George Orwell's observations of working-class life during the 1930s in the industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. His depictions of social injustice and rising unemployment, the dangerous working conditions in the mines amid general squalor and hunger also bring together many of the ideas explored in his later works and novels.

Censored. This is Orwell, remember?

A number of words were bleeped. I can't tell you how aggravating it is to purchase a book as an adult, and have someone choose which words I ought to hear. Wonderful book overall. Orwell deserves his full credit. The narrator sounded excellent to. But hearing that bleep made my blood boil.

A classic

As relevant today as it was 80 years ago. A must read for anyone interested in the history and politics of the last century.

Well read and informative

Great perspective on mining, socialism, communism, and fascism. You would never think how much something as simple as canned food could play an enormous role in society. The reader put great emotion into the story and made me feel like he was the actual author at these locations and in that period of time.

A great look into the year 1936

A book about the working class life in 1936 and also about the political climate of the time.

Very pertinent message in today’s political landscape

This book was a very interesting read - the first part was an excellent ethnography of coal miners in the UK - followed by a very well thought out argument for moderate socialist policy - rather than the misguided identity politics we see today. George Orwell remains one of my favorite writers of all time.

Class a pathogen

"You can sympathize with a murderer, a sodomite, but bot if his breath stinks." Great insight on the class system.
