A spledid book,
This review is from: George Orwell (Paperback)
This is an excellent read by Gordon Bowker. He has carried out a terrific amount of research and has captured the many facets that make up George Orwell. He has done this with care and it whets the appetite of the reader for more of Orwell's work.
The book demonstrates that Orwell was a man of contrasts and perhaps had difficulty in understanding himself and lasting happiness always seemed to elude him. This has been handled sensitively by Gordon Bowker.
