it was amazing

Anyone who moans about their lot should be forced to read this! In 1906, unless you were one of the monied classes, you just worked, tried (and mostly failed) to make ends meet and had no rights whatsoever. It's a real eye-opener. There is no-one who would not get something out of this wonderful novel which encompasses the beginnings of Socialism. Highly recommended!
