Language. I’m glad that I spent a few days in early Summer reading Thomas E. Ricks’ book titled, Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom. I was curious to see what links Ricks would present to tie these interesting lives together. One of the connections involves their common love of language, and the ways in which their insight and words have an impact into the present. I knew far more about Churchill than Orwell, and thanks to Ricks I have an increased appreciation for Orwell. Readers interested in either individual are those most likely to enjoy this finely written book.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
