'The first great English novel about the class war, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is spiked, witty, humorous, instructive and full of excitement, harmony and pathos.' Alan Sillitoe 'Some books seem to batter their way to immortality against all the odds, by sheer brute artistic strength, and high up in this curious and honourable company must be counted The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. Robert Tressell's unfailing humour mixes with an unfailing rage and the two together make a truly Swiftian impact.' Evening Standard Robert Tressell has complete familiarity with the idiom of his characters. His language is bizarre, vital, highly inventive and precisely heard -- it is a complete and living archaeology of the speech of a particular human group. A brilliant and very funny book.' Spectator

Not sure why some have voted cold. This book deserves a read for the historic aspects (a bit like Thomas Hardy's books it deals with long forgotten details of country people and building trades) and for the way it documents the sociological thinking of the early 1900's and the movement towards socialism. Any serious student of history, socialism or sociology should read this book, as should anyone with a passing interest in history, particularly the local history of Hastings and East Sussex.

Not sure why anyone would vote anything free as cold anyway. If you find a better deal then it makes sense i.e if someone is paying you to read then vote the free option cold but otherwise ;)
