Coal Mining Hell!

Beautifully read with well-acted voice characterisations by Mr Northam. Clever and descriptive prose by Mr Orwell. A frightening first-hand account of harsh reality of life as a coal miner in Britain in the early-mid 20th Century. Time has shown the final third of the book to be looking through somewhat rose coloured glasses.

A very compelling and insightful investigation on how humans try to determine truthfulness and search for meaning when dealing with strangers or even persons who are familiar.
