Burmese Days

Burmese Days

Author(s): George Orwell

Location(s): Burma (Myanmar)

Genre(s): Fiction

This is Orwell sharing in no uncertain terms his views of the rule of the British Empire over Burma. A beautiful character study of Flory, with striking insight – this book is up there with Animal Farm and 1984!
