" The great enemy of clear language is insincerity "
Another week, another “must read” book .. erm … read.
S’alright I suppose. I’m sure that I should be more impressed with the writings of such a literary giant as Mr Orwell so I shall resign myself to saying that it is ‘the least great of all his musings’.
I was surprised at my own review of the book so I looked up what other readers had to say about it. Looks like I’m in the minority on this one – everyone else says you should read it and, as one reader eloquently put it, “you will not be disappoint”.
If you’re asking me, read 1984 or Animal Farm instead.
That is all.
