Burmese Days by George Orwell

This book deals with many important and socially relevant issues, such as racism, imperialism, colonialism, and the White Man’s Burden.

There were parts of this book that made me feel profoundly disgusted, but other than that it left me cold. A disappointing effort from a normally brilliant author.
