Orwell Diaries

Posted on Fri 28 August 2009 in general

The Orwell Diaries have been running for a little over a year now. One thing I've learned is his slight obsession with the egg production of his chickens as well as a few notes about living in Spain. However the last few weeks has seen more earnest reporting of the political situation in the UK and Europe as it lumbers towards World War II. It's kinda of spooky though because while I know what is coming as Orwell writes he along with the rest of the country of the time really didn't know how it would end. It's an interesting peak back into time.
