At just a little over 3 hours, this little book grabs your attention and in true George Orwell fashion, disturbs you deeply and makes you look at life just a little differently. A good listen, a good narrator and a pleasure to listen through.
Animal Farm is an outstanding fictional work which so accurately describes the unfortunate yet common results of ignorance plus gullibility. The performance kept me invested in the story.
I think this book shows how the evil of man can spread from all of the animals that assume power. I personally hope that one day, there may be a sequel to this outstanding book.
"Some are more equal than others..."
Animal Farm has long been considered "required reading" by many. As it so happens, I was never assigned this book in school - the other American literature classes were assigned it (and my mom always assigned it to her classes), but my class was assigned much longer and, shall we say, more difficult reads. Being a book hound, I generally read what the other classes were assigned, too, but I had never got around to this one until recently. In all honesty, it was probably the length (or lack thereof) that kept me away, as I tend to prefer much longer works. But, in preparation for a recent road trip, I stocked up on on audio books and did some bargain shopping. This title was available to Kindle Unlimited members with whispersync for audio either at no additional cost or for very little cost - and it is just $3.99 on Audible now, I see.
I'm sorry I put this work off for so long. "Some are more equal than others," indeed.
This book was excellent. The way it tells the story of the man in power or should I say pigs in power is disturbing and yet it happen in the past and it is still happening.
The story is amazing.
He spoiled the entire plot line in the first ten minutes of listening. How did that pass any kind of quality control?
This is became my new favorite.
"The Revolution" - Congressman Ron Paul
A super read for ages 13- 103.
