A comprehensive book on the life of George Orwell. With good intention(?) but the writer's ability to write was disastrous, the language he used made this almost completely unreadable. It should be about Orwell but somehow it seemed more like a book on the history of British communism. He wrote a lot but nothing was really intelligible,sadly it's another book that will be forgotten.

I thought it would be a collection of articles by George but it's the writer's opinion and prejudices.
