Book Notes: "Books v. Cigarettes" by George Orwell

Books v. CigarettesBooks v. Cigarettes by George Orwell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Orwell is brilliant. My favourite quote: “Political writing of our time consists almost entirely of prefabricated phrases bolted together like the pieces of a child’s Meccano set. It is the unavoidable result of self-censorship. To write in plain, vigorous language one has to think fearlessly, and if one thinks fearlessly one cannot be politically orthodox”.
