Orwell draws on his years of experience in India to tell this story of the waning days of British imperialism. A handful of Englishmen living in a settlement in Burma congregate in the European Club, drink whiskey, and argue over an impending order to admit a token Asian.

After reading Orwell's other works I have found this book as enjoyable as them. Easy to read and comprehend except for the few unknown words, but all the same. I had to read it for class and I saved it for last since I had to read ten other books. Easily finished in two days- if you enjoy the topic or even just his writing style you will enjoy this book.
