    More relevant than ever, the writer and his books! I love how impactful Hourly History's books are despite being short-reads. Loved all the quotes and excerpts from George Orwell's books. Makes me want to do read all of them in the chronological order. Especially since this book tells us about the influences and experiences that inspired their creation, including 1984 and Animal Farm.

I love how impactful Hourly History's books are despite being short-reads. Loved all the quotes and excerpts from George Orwell's books. Makes me want to do read all of them in the chronological order. Especially since this book tells us about the influences and experiences that inspired their creation, including 1984 and Animal Farm. Despite being a socialist at heart Orwell was very critical of the socialist parties of his time because of their totalitarian nature. The book gives us a short but satisfactory discussion on this topic also. "Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism as I understand it." - George Orwell Orwell explained his absolute embrace of socialism following the Spanish Civil War as follows: “Socialism means a classless society, or it means nothing at all. And it was here that those few months in the militia were valuable to me. For the Spanish militias, while they lasted, were a sort of microcosm of a classless society. In that community where no one was on the make, where there was a shortage of everything but no privilege and no bootlicking, one got, perhaps, a crude forecast of what the opening stages of socialism might be like. And, after all, instead of disillusioning me it deeply attracted me. The effect was to make my desire to see socialism established much more actual than it had been before.” Perhaps if Orwell can be faulted for anything, it is that he wrote passionately about government abuses yet never formulated a clear political system that would counteract them. But then, he was not a politician. George Orwell was a writer who wrote about what he saw—and his eyes were always wide open.

    Having never read any of George Orwell's work, I've been curious about two of his books (1984 and Animal Farm).  This is an enlightening book about the man, his time and the importance of his body of work.  I read it in one sitting because it was very compelling.  The author showed how Orwell developed his ideas from the life he led and the colonialism England was involved in during that time. Both of the books I mentioned in the last paragraph are widely read, even 70+ years after they were writ Having never read any of George Orwell's work, I've been curious about two of his books (1984 and Animal Farm).  This is an enlightening book about the man, his time and the importance of his body of work.  I read it in one sitting because it was very compelling.  The author showed how Orwell developed his ideas from the life he led and the colonialism England was involved in during that time. Both of the books I mentioned in the last paragraph are widely read, even 70+ years after they were written.  Various phrases (thought police, big brother, etc.) have entered common usage.  Even people who have not read the books know what these terms mean. I found this brief summary of George Orwell's life to be very satisfying.  It told me about his personal life, where he got his ideas, how his ideas grew or were honed, summations of his most important works, and Orwell's influence on his times - as well as ours.

    This book discusses about the circumstances in which George Orwell grew up and wrote his books. Incidents which motivated him for writing his famous works. Living in Indian subcontinent he witnessed social issues and was moved by it due to which he pointed to the problems in a subtle way.

    George Orwell wrote two books that are still very relevant today, Animal Farm and 1984. The book shows how his sympathy was with the lower classes. Even though he ended up working for England in India for a while he actually opposed British colonialism. The book also talks about his time in Spain, his belief in socialism and his death. To me 1984 is probably his most significant work and it warns people of a government with way too much control over its own people. One thing to consider is that 19 George Orwell wrote two books that are still very relevant today, Animal Farm and 1984. The book shows how his sympathy was with the lower classes. Even though he ended up working for England in India for a while he actually opposed British colonialism. The book also talks about his time in Spain, his belief in socialism and his death. To me 1984 is probably his most significant work and it warns people of a government with way too much control over its own people. One thing to consider is that 1984 was written before the widespread use of computers and mass media, both of which can have a major influence on how people think and behave.

    I thought that for a one hour biography, this book was very good. It delved into the circumstances in Orwell's life that influenced his political views and there were details about Orwell's written works that I had never heard about before. I have read "Animal Farm" and "1984" and I thought that the summaries of both books in this One Hour History were good. Well worth the read.

    I absolutely love Hourly History. They have amazing writers, and this one is no exception. Even though parts of the biography were summaries of Animal Farm and 1984, the summaries were placed perfectly to show where Orwell's life and mindset were when he wrote them, so the summaries also seemed biographical.

    Story of one of the greatest dystopian authors told in the most humane way. Right from starting from scratch in the Burmese police to making writing work. Books make reading history interesting and worthwhile.

    Good book containing concise but descriptive information about Orwell and the impact of his books I like the brevity of the book. This is complemented by a great description of their two main Books. Accurate and reliable

    History reader This book gives a concise narrative of George Orwell's short but productive life. I now have context to many of his famous works along with background on some of his lesser known works.
