Format: Paperback
He writes in an economical way. He is charitable towards authors whom he obviously doesn't rate. I think he respects anyone who can manage to write a book and get it published! He isn't weighed down with preconceived notions.

Not frightened to have a go at Dickens and Wells - and Dostoevsky for that matter, although mostly complimentary to them. They were literary "superstars" but they get the critical treatment from Orwell all right and that brings them down to earth which is refreshing.

It's sometimes hard to remember that he is writing during the 40s as his style is very 2010 in my opinion. There's nothing stilted about it. It's free and easy and very personal - not super intellectual.

It would be fascinating to hear what he had to say about say modern day TV/media.

He's still with us, and we need him more than ever..can you imagine his writing on the post 9-11 world, or Edward Snowden, or the Iraq War, or the Coalition? There's no one to touch him. His journalism always had a novelistic feel, and a great eye for the truth. Superb collection of his Observer pieces. The subjects at times may feel dated, but his withering eye for justice, freedom and truth are as vital as ever.
