Orwell's Animal Farm and 1984 are very good novels; the same cannot be said of his other attempts at fiction. Burmese Days was based on his years in the Burmese police force. His hatred of colonialism came from those years within the disfunctional bureaucracy of a country he came to love but could not live in. The characters are not three-dimensional and the plot is not believeable.
