This book is about the hardships of 1930s British life and what happens to someone who loses their faith and can not reclaim it. All of Orwell's books that I have read help me to put my life in perspective. I suggest you not read this book on an empty stomach.

I give it four stars because I like all of Orwell's writing but this book pales in comparison to Orwell's other works. Burmese Days, 1984, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, and Coming Up For Air are all better choices in my opinion. A Clergyman's Daughter seems choppy and the story itself is pretty unbelievable. Still a reccomended read however.

I loved this book. You have to hand it to George Orwell to do it again! If you buy only one book in your life again, make it this book.

Very interesting, well written story of a daughter "caught" in the role of caring for her father and his church congregation following his wife's death. That in and of itself would make a wonderful sad story .. but then G. Orwell adds in a "loss of memory" period where she experiences another side of life .. and then eventually returns to continue her former life. That made for a good read also .. but his explanation of why it happened didn't sit well with me.

Orwell uses the travails of Dorothy, amnesia sufferer,to deliver his caustic social commentary on early Twentieth Century England. Despite some inexplicable gaps in the story Orwell's masterly writing trumps all.
