Wigan Pier
Started by: GOLDEN BEAR (2644)  Report abuse
I have just finished reading George Orwell's book :
THE ROAD TO WIGAN PIER" What i would like to point out first is i am not an avid reader, that alas is one of my faults. So with my background or should i say my father's mining background i took the plunge and bought it, i have just finished it and to my delight i thoroughly enjoyed it!

All i would advise is if you were like me and have roots in coal mining etc, it is a MUST READ. It has got me going my next attempt is George Orwell's 1984.
So im giving that a go .

I started the Road to Wigam Pier and 1984 and I couldn't finish any of them.
