This audiobook includes unabridged recordings of all George Orwell's six novels: 1984; Animal Farm; Burmese Days; Coming Up for Air; Keep the Aspidistra Flying; and A Clergyman's Daughter.
1984: Winston Smith begins to rebel against Big Brother's totalitarian control and falls in love with fellow worker Julia but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

Coming Up for Air: in search of a simpler life, George Bowling escapes London and an impending sense of war to return to his childhood village.
Keep the Aspidistra Flying: Gordon Comstock quits his advertising job to pursue the creative life in opposition to 'the money god'. Only his ever-faithful Rosemary can rouse him from the stupor and challenge his commitment to his chosen way of life.
A Clergyman's Daughter: intimidated by her father, the rector of Knype Hill, Dorothy performs her submissive roles of dutiful daughter and bullied housekeeper. Her thoughts are taken up with the costumes she is making for the church school play, until her routine shatters and Dorothy finds herself down and out in London.

A Wonderfully Produced, Fully-Indexed Collection
Orwell quite rightly still holds an incredibly important position in our literary canon, and having all of his fiction in this one collection is an absolute delight. The narrators do an outstanding job of bringing his works to life. Leighton Pugh's reading of Animal Farm is a particular delight.
Unlike many, the collection is also fully indexed so you can clearly see which chapter relates to which novel/chapter
This audiobook is a real bargain for a single credit, and the production quality is truly excellent.
