Review:

* If 'peerless prose' could apply to one writer alone, I'd accord it to Orwell The Guardian * Jeremy Northam is superb. The manner is wholly entertaining yet maintaining an air of informative anecdote making the book so real and alive. The School Librarian on Down and Out in Paris and London * Simon Callow's remarkable narration brings out the many layers of Orwell's fable... Brilliant' The Observer on Animal Farm * Nineteen Eighty-Four is given fresh life through this vigorous narration The Observer on Ninteen Eighty-Four

Review:

True genius ... all his anger and frustration found their first proper means of expression in Wigan Pier (Peter Ackroyd The Times)
