Bookclub choice. Sad that I failed to actually make it to bookclub that month, but there you go.

It's a good book, even though the main character was an insufferable dick. I think I've outgrown it a little - wish I'd read it in my 20s. Mostly it just reminded me of my twenties and the grinding nag of never having enough money.

Might as well shove in a picture of the Coryvreckan Whirlpool here - it's ace:

I read a lot of Orwell in my 20s, and remember liking Keep the Aspidistra Flying as one of his minor works. My favorites were Homage to Catalonia, Down and Out in Paris and London, and a novel about being part of the empire in its very late days in India.

I liked "Down and Out" too.
