If you like Orwell, Burmese Days is pretty good, as are the autobiographical Down and Out in Paris and London and Homage to Catalonia.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I'm glad that some other people think of 'Animal Farm' when they hear the song 'Piggies'. 'Homage to Catalonia' is also good, as is '1984'. I've not heard of 'Burmese Days' before, but will have a look out for it. What's it about- apart from Burma, as the title suggests?

On the topic of Orwell, I would also recommend the satirical Keep The Aspidistra Flying.

Well I really wasn't supposed to read them yet... a-hard-days-night-george-6 My mother just was talking about Big Brother one day, so I decided to get 1984 at my school library, and when I told my mom months later about how vulgar it was, she was freaked out.... Animal Farm wasn't as crazy in that respect, but it's still pretty heavy for a kid whose peers are still reading Judy Blume....
