Book that will change your outlook
on 16 February 2017
A book which is as relevant today as it was when it was written. Tressell addresses the inequalities between the working and the ruling classes. The book has been written in such a way that the reader can empathise from Frank Owen's perspective, the way his co-workers are taken advantage of without them even realising and the methods employed by their bosses to gain maximum effort for minimal gain. Even the surnames of the characters gives you a glimpse of their personalities which come to fruition when you begin reading. Overall an outstanding piece of work and the book which other socialist and left leaning publications are judged against.
