For some reason I was never required to read this is school, so when I saw it on list of classics, I bought it on Audible. It was a wonderful story of political corruption and societal norms. The narrator was great and his varying voices for the characters kept my interest.
I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.
I've been putting off reading this book for about 20 years. I got it as part of some 2 for 1 audible special or something. I'd say it was worth the time to listen to it.
The story is a great cautionary tail, and it certainly held my attention the entire time.
I'm deducting 1 star because the story lacked any trace of subtlety. The message was shoved down our throats. The other 4 stars I'm keeping, because it was a message that everyone should hear.
Interested in mostly history, biographies, autobiographies, classics, and Great Courses...with some Sci Fi thrown in for fun!
Animal Farm is a classic among classics, and Cosham does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life.
This is a classic that I read along time ago but reading it today seemed so fitting.
The reading was well done.
Yes, you cant read and drive.
