Six of the best,

This review is from: George Orwell Omnibus: The Complete Novels: Animal Farm, Burmese Days, A Clergyman's Daughter, Coming up for Air, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, and, 1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four (Paperback)
Obviously 1984 and Animal Farm are so well known as to not need any further comments about their quality. If you haven't read them, then now is the time.
However the less well known novels are just as interesting, especially as many aspects of Orwell's own life show through. From the despairing colonial offical in "Burmese Days" to the homeless hop-pickers in "A clergyman's daughter" via a down and out writer in "Keep the Apidistra flying" he writes well because he essentially writing from his own experiences.
These are novels of the highest quality.
