Description

A graphic and biting polemic that still holds a fierce political relevance and impact despite being written over half a century ago. First published in 1937 it charts George Orwell's observations of working-class life during the 1930s in the industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. His depictions of social injustice and rising unemployment, the dangerous working conditions in the mines amid general squalor and hunger also bring together many of the ideas explored in his later works and novels.

Must read

Read this on recommendation by Jordan Peterson. It outlines the life of the working and lower classes from the perspective of an open minded Borgois man living among them. It also describes the transitional issues that arrive when trying to convert an entire civilization to socialism as is happening still today. Fascism is a real danger, ever lurking in the shadow of socialism. Great read, decent narrator.

proper good read for the times.

very relevant for today's social economic status. I found that there were many concerns and thoughts reverberating against today's class topics.

History repeats it self

Amazing how George Orwell basically predicted the cultural landscape we face today. For someone who was pro socialism he really paints a dark picture for the future.

So relevant., Required learning

This book was not what I expected, it was way better. I think the themes of class and power are as relevant as ever. People trying to survive with what they have. The struggle of trying to move up, to better themselves is everyones story. However we are moving backwards when people want to live homeless. How much should they be helped and why do we judge them? A great discussion is necessary.

Censored. This is Orwell, remember?

A number of words were bleeped. I can't tell you how aggravating it is to purchase a book as an adult, and have someone choose which words I ought to hear. Wonderful book overall. Orwell deserves his full credit. The narrator sounded excellent to. But hearing that bleep made my blood boil.

An antidote to woke culture

Orwell was a visionary, who predicted the coming of the woke and the pseudo socialist left wing driven by envey of those who have more than them, including working class people who make themselves a fortune.

A classic

As relevant today as it was 80 years ago. A must read for anyone interested in the history and politics of the last century.

Disappointing

It may have been my mistake however after viewing the cover and summary I expected a novel or at least something of a story. This is an extremely dry hyperlength and now very dated essay in political and social economy. Unless you need it for research, I'd steer way clear. Whilst there are some interesting facts presented, it is very much of a haranguing listen. His novels are much, much better, particularly Burmese Days and the classics.

not what I expected

it went by too quick. I'm the furthest from a political socialist, and I absolutely loved the world he described on his way. from the scabs on the spines of coal miners to his self reflection over other socialists and his own action really are one ponder I wish I read this years ago.

Not Orwell's best book

An interesting political commentary, but of the 5 Orwell books I have read, it isn't up to the standards of the others. Performance of the book is great.

A critique of Socialism by a Socialist.

It was an interesting read, specially after reading "The gulag archipelago" and "Mien Kampf"!
G. Orwell's critiques of Socialism was on point in my opinion, very reasonable and not biased as well as being realistic. The dangers he was warning of were also reasonable. However, I felt that his response in defense of Socialism as a solution to the problems at hand wasn't as strong as to convince me as a debater who've been at this topic for a long time now.

Well read and informative

Great perspective on mining, socialism, communism, and fascism. You would never think how much something as simple as canned food could play an enormous role in society. The reader put great emotion into the story and made me feel like he was the actual author at these locations and in that period of time.

A great look into the year 1936

A book about the working class life in 1936 and also about the political climate of the time.
