Para calcular a classificação geral de estrelas e a análise percentual por estrela, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como se uma avaliação é recente e se o avaliador comprou o item na Amazon. Ele também analisa avaliações para verificar a confiabilidade.
Didn't enjoy this as much as I expected. Seems obviously his first book, a bit of a mish mash of love story, story of an ex-pats decline, and a bit about Burma. The racism, and Orwell's disgust at it, are clear. Perhaps best read as a portrayal of the 30s colonial mindset - which I guess is what he intended!
It was worth remembering how appalling people's attitudes were back then. I suppose Orwell did a good job of mimicking it but it seemed very OTT to me. I imagine there were some decent young women even then.
I enjoyed the book, it's an easy read but quite sickening in its description of the unpleasantness of British colonialism. Orwell makes virtually all the characters unpleasant and narrow-minded, and it's difficult to sympathise with even the main protagonist.
The Kindle version though is quite good but there are some weird errors. Did they digitise it with some OCR software? It keeps saying "mere" where "there" was intended, and particularly strange was the use of "tiling" instead of "thing". While the book isn't particularly expensive, proof reading would undoubtedly have caught these, so it gets a bit irritating.
