George Orwell - Why I Write

George Orwell – Why I Write


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.
