Burmese Days

At book group this week we discussed Burmese Days by George Orwell.

None of us had managed to finish reading it, but only due to time pressures, we'd all enjoyed it greatly.

One of the key pleasures of reading a well written book set in a foreign culture is the way it transports you to a different world. Cheaper than the air fare and more environmentally friendly (although I'm aware my bowing bookshelves represent the sacrifice of several trees).
