    When Orwell went to England in the 30's to find out how industrial workers lived, he not only observed but shared in their experiences. He stayed in cramped, dreary lodgings and subsisted on the scant, cheerless diet of the poor. He went down into the coal mines and walked crouching, as the miners did, through a one- to three-mile passage too low to stand up in. He watched the back-breaking, dangerous labor of men whose net pay then averaged $575 a year.

    Cassie Melnikow says: "An Interesting Social Commentary"
    "Narrator ruined it for me"
    Overall

    I guess it might be a good book, but I just couldn't (although I tried) get past the narrator's infuriatingly smug tone...
