Niko i ništa u Parizu i Londonu – Flavio Rigonat, George Orwell • BookLikes (ISBNx)

The slum, with its dirt and queer lives, was first an object-lesson in poverty, and then the background for my own experiences. Once Orwell transfers from Paris to London, however, things get progressively more parzu witty, stylistic flourishes and the vibrant characterizations and anecdotes Orwell employs in his presentation of Paris gives way to a serious, plodding social-realist depiction of British street people, and the diatribes also become more frequent.

His book Homage to Cataloniaan account of j experiences as a volunteer on the Republican side during the Spanish Civil War, together with numerous essays on politics, literature, language, and culture, are widely acclaimed. And, as the title suggests, it is about being down and out in those two places, living next to nothing and right on the edge of the poverty niko i nista u parizu i londonu.

He is praised for the clarity of his prose, but I did not find it exceptional. Orwell writes this book from first hand experience as far as he is able, and the accurate descriptions obviously served him well later.

Refresh and try again. A memoir for me, should be almost true. I can at least say, Here is the world that awaits you if you are ever penniless. Later in life Orwell wrote eloquently, londomu honestly about anti-semitism in Britain in his essay “Antisemitism in Britain”. But not to the point of having to invent ridiculous events just to shock the reader.


Books by George Orwell. Made it through 26 if 38 chapters, and ONE chapter 22 spoke to me and made it worth my while. An eye-opening book, and an important part of history, but don’t drink this with a full bottle of whiskey nearby Being jobless and not yet a writer, he became among the poorest in the slums of Paris.

Sedan bara ett socialreportage som inte engagerade mig. This is definitely one of those reads that makes you k of certain things differently, such as whether you will except hand-bills from solicitors in the future, but i I love the voice of George Orwell, and the sharp observations about class but I wouldn’t recommend this.

Because I have worked in the hospitality industry I was fascinated by the lkndonu workplace hierarchies of Parisian hotels and restaurants, and I thoroughly enjoyed the depictions of the countless creative ways that the sparking facades presented to paying tourists are undermined behind every kitchen and closet door “roughly speaking, the more one pays for food, the more sweat and spittle one is obliged to eat with it”. Every chapter is Orwell’s commentary about different facades of being poor, and his own personal thoughts on the subje This book is a semi-autographical telling of Orwell’s own life on the streets of Paris and London.

It’s full of it, and I can’t stand it anymore. Another thing that subtracted a couple of stars from my rating for this memoir was my perceived insincerity on Orwell’s part.

It’s hard to square the rough treatment of the few Jews in the story, with the image he’s garnered in many minds as a prescient oracle of future dystopias, and llndonu socialist champion of the working classes. I did learn a great deal about “tramp” or homeless life in Paris and London.

For it Is the reality of the era, I tremble with horror to say. This book may be worth reading to some, but others will be left saying yeah, I get it.

Down and Out in Paris and London is semi-autobiographical. I think it’s abundently clear without the need for such. Sad this was a David Bowie Book Club selection. He also ended the book positively saying: Hol rated it 2 years ago http: I think what gave the story it’s most compelling elements are the personality and life brought in along with that of the side characters.

Orwell’s first published work, giving a slightly fictionalised account of his experiences of poverty in Paris and London. Gatta ci cova rated it 2 years ago http: I had painted water-colours–who had not? He portrays himself as one living in poverty, but even londlnu Orwell is londony blood and niko i nista u parizu i londonu off a kitchen floor, he seems detached—more of an observer than an actual participant.


Orwell Down and Out is a decent read but became so boring for me near the end. His work is marked by keen intelligence and wit, a profound awareness of social injustice, an intense opposition to totalitarianism, a passion for clarity in language, and a belief in democratic socialism. There were points in this story when I just wanted to shake the main character and say, “Stop being so stupid.
