Facing Unpleasant Facts - George Orwell - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Facing Unpleasant Facts:

Essays about life, boarding schools, and other things unpleasant.

My favorite George Orwell quote from the book:

"To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle."

Questions to ponder while reading Facing Unpleasant Facts:

Do you work with your hands?

Have you ever fought for your country?

My review of the book:

Orwell at his best.

So incredibly relevant, even today.

I'm so glad I've never gone to English boarding schools.
