If you have ever had to live on $2 a day or worked as a busboy in a restaurant you will understand Orwell's situation in this book. I had to suppress my laughter at various times on the Subway while reading it. There are some dated descriptions that some may find racist or offensive, but it was written decades ago and I chose to let them slide. The book is very entertaining and simple and easy to read like all of Orwell’s work. You can tell that he really lived these experiences and his first hand accounts are both funny and descriptive. If you like “Homage to Catalonia”, “Burmese Days” or many of Orwell’s short stories you will probably like this book too.
