This one was okay but it’s not my favourite. Perhaps part of the reason for that is that I don’t like kids and so even though this book is a send up of the “delight” that is becoming a parent, I still didn’t like reading about it in the first place.

Still, if you have a friend who’s either expecting or is a new parent, this would make for a pretty good gift. It has a fun sense of humour and the illustrations are great. Enjoy.

I had to mark this book down a little bit because I feel like it was mis-sold to me. Orwell basically uses the first couple of pages to say that he writes for political reasons and then the rest of the book is about his political beliefs, so really this should be called “On Politics“.

Still, it was fine, it just wasn’t what I was expecting and so therefore it also wasn’t what I was in the mood to read. I’m also not really sure who I’d recommend it to. I mean, it’s worth reading if you’re in 1942. But I’m not.
