Juan Guapo ,

Excellent read.

A revealing, humanistic novel. I read the whole thing in one day, couldn't put it down.

FBE ,

Great book

As Orwell's first book, it is fantastic. A great read about real life in a poverty state in Paris and London in the early 20th century. A must read, at least in my mind.

Ok not great

Not bad but the storyline wasn't very interesting at some points it seems more like a diary explaining poverty than anything else and Orwell evens notes this at the end of the book
