summary Burmese Days: Keep the Aspidistra Flying. Coming Up for Air 108 110. This Everyman s Edition is a handy compilation of three of Orwell s earlier novels They probably have not been added very much to school course lists because I would think they have been unfairly over shadowed by Nineteen Eighty Four and Animal Farm If you haven t read these go ahead and do so I personally enjoyed Burmese Days very much Orwell spent some years in Burma as a British civil servant He constructs a very interesting and compelling plot which underscores the problems of the British Raj at the time Orwell s description of the persons place and climate put you right there in the thick of it this is a page turner all the way Reminds me somewhat of the Somerset Maugham short stories set in the East which are very atmospheric I was happy to read the Aspidistra novel and found it interesting but only slightly the main character s irrational poses become very wearisome perhaps Orwell was partially autobiographical here and was attempting to exorcise some demons Coming Up for Air is much better very humourous stream of conscious narration by the main character as he goes through his life crisisas does England The Everyman s series are also well made very collectable volumes which you wish to keep in your permanent library they are very low priced for the uality offered
