I found the audiobook Keep the Aspidistra Flying by George Orwell (read by Michael Kitchen) on youtube. Haven't listened to the whole thing and have never heard of the book so I can't vouch for it in any way, but I found it by accident and downloaded it. Yay, more Michael Kitchen to listen to!

That was my first audio book. Really enjoyed it. Some fun voices. You want to smack his character after a while. :lol:

Enjoy

Ha-true! Just when you think he can't go any lower! But then, George Orwell is not the cheeriest of writers.....

Still loved every minute of it because of MK.

That's the one where his character is composing a poem, right? It's been a while since I listened to it.

Spoilers below:




I loved how he kept repeating the lines he'd written so far. The poem became more resonant and meaningful, somehow.
And then there is his 'attempt' to make love with his girlfriend - I found MK's defeated little noises hilarious. :rofl:

MK may have identified with the main character (except that MK is impressive to look at! :obsessed: ):

"Gordon was not impressive to look at. He was just five feet seven inches high ....When he knew that anyone was looking at him he carried himself very upright, throwing a chest with a you-be-damned air which occasionally deceived simple people."
:lol:

Yes, he is impressive, but the rest of the description sure fits :lol:
