The scene where Gordon finally sells a poem and ends up blowing the money on booze and tarts. You can feel his hangover when he wakes up in jail. Gives me a headache just thinking about it.
Gordon's tenacity, although like everyone he ends up with his own aspidistra.
If you have seen any of his movies you know what an amazing actor he is, in fact he starred in the film adaptation of the book. No one could have done a better job than Mr. Grant. Check out Withnail & I. "We've gone on holiday by mistake..."
Ravelston because he would pay.
Orwell said he wrote the book because he needed money. Quite ironic.
I have only purchased one other audiobook-Keep the Aspidistra Flying by George Orwell. They are both excellent.
The narrator because it is his story, although he is telling it while dead.
He was perfect.
I have the feeling the people who hated this saw the word policeman in the title and expected one of those books located by the cash register in the supermarket. If you can't enjoy something because it doesn't "make sense" you won't like this. However if you like Samuel Becket or James Joyce you will find this very funny.
