's review

it was amazing

I don't have much to say here: The man can think, and the man can write. You knew that already, but it's nice to have a series of reminders.

I don't know whether all the essays I review below appear in this book (I read from the Orwell Foundation's website instead), but I'm sure most do, and other essays in the book are likely of a similar standard of quality.

Highlights from Orwell's work:
* The Prevention of Literature
* Antisemitism in Britain
* Books vs. Cigarettes
* How the Poor Die
* In Defense of P.G. Wodehouse (worthwhile even if you don't know or don't like P.G. Wodehouse)
* A Hanging (the most memorable, and the most devastating)
