Keep the Aspidistra Flying - George Orwell

BEST BOOK RECOMMENDED BY A LIBRARIAN

 

I can't remember how old I was when I read Animal Farm, but I know I was pretty young. I asked my librarian which of Orwell's books I should read next, and instead of the obvious Nineteen Eighty-four, she suggested I read Keep the Aspidistra Flying

 

Thanks Mrs S. It was a good choice, and made me a lifelong fan of Orwell.
