5.0 out of 5 stars Orwell and good., 10 Nov 2013
This review is from: George Orwell: English Rebel (Hardcover)
There are many books on the English socialist icon George Orwell, but none that really describes and gets inside the man like this book by Robert Colls does. It has been brilliantly researched, as you would probably expect from a man with an academic background, but is also very well written and easy to read, a feat that does not always go together. What is also is fairly unique for me is it shows Orwell in quite a new light, in that he was a man of many contradictions who disliked the right as well as the left of the political divide, taking up viewpoints you would not normally associate with him.

If you want to buy one book on Orwell you couldn't go far wrong in choosing this one
