Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom by Thomas E. Ricks

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I read the book and I read a lot of the reviews. I like the concept of a dual biography but I guess I just lose the threads. I see the comparisons and the parallels but to find out right out front that George Orwell was at heart a fascist really disturbed me. The fact that he, and not necessarily Churchill had an effect long after he was gone. Even in the present environment, the warnings inherent in “1984” are becoming popular in world culture.

  1. I liked this book, but I share your reservations. Thomas Ricks paints a picture of two flawed men and I agree, the threads didn’t always connect the two men for me.
