A wonderful listen
Beautifully read by Allan Corduner, who gives a great performance with the different voices and accents, it adds a new level to the audiobook and allows the reader/listener to fully appreciate this wonderful book.

Compulsive story to listen to. Highly recommended
Set in Burma towards the end of the British Raj, where bigotry and racism thrive in the closed society of the Englishmen’s club. The story centres around John Flory, whose life has been governed by an ugly birthmark on his face. It is about his two relationships in an otherwise friendless life and the effects of a vicious, scheming and corrupt magistrate. George Orwell tells his tale with empathy, an intimate knowledge of his main character and some scorn towards a society he got to know personally. Allan Corduner’s narration is first rate.
