Robson Green's 6 best books

Robson Green is an actor, singer and presenter best known for the TV dramas Wire In The Blood and Soldier, Soldier.

He told the Daily Express about his six best books. One title on his list:
by George Orwell

You don't have to be a student of the Russian Revolution to enjoy this book which is a satire on the Soviet Union.

Everything is initially fine when there is a revolution on the farm but then the pigs get out of hand. A fine illustration of how the pursuit of power corrupts.
Read about another book on Green's list.

Animal Farm is one of Chuck Klosterman's most important books; it appears on John Mullan's list of ten of the best pigs in literature. Charlie Jane Anders and Michael Ann Dobbs number it among 15 classic science fiction & fantasy novels that publishers rejected.
