Customer Review

25 September 2013
Good solid George Orwell. Entertaining and well written he draws on his own experiences to highlight the impact of Empire not only on the locals but also on the British Officials who administered and exploited others. Different attitudes within this are made apparent and fascinating to read. The attitudes of some of the Colonials can make you shudder and you realise that whilst some of us have moved on, others have residual thoughts and would feel comfortable in "The Club.". But the damage the system did to the British involved is shown here. Isolation, loneliness and being brutalised as well as an unjustified feeling of superiority. This was fed and fed into so many missed opportunities for friendships and developing genuine relationships with people from another culture as well as learning from them.
