First time hearing Animal Farm. A great book with immense meaning for our own time.
Observer, reader, knitter.
I would recommend this book to anyone in Jr high or above. This tale has great historical, present and future value. George Orwell speaks to a real historical past, his message is on point for the political and social climate in America today, and must never be laid to rest in light of current events.
I chose this rating because we unfortunately repeat our history, my great hope is that we can move past to a point where society will not allow it again.
This book has a really deep message, but if you don't take the book seriously it really funny. I read 1984, which is also a very good book, but I would probably say this one is better.
This book was on the required reading list for me growing up. I am often surprised that more people have never heard of it, let alone never read it. While short in length, it is a far reaching book that I recommend all should read.
Lovely reading of Orwell's classic by Cosham. Worth refreshing your memory even if you've read it before as I have. All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.
Listen or read or watch a dramatization of this cautionary tale...however you experience it, do it now. This audible version is as good as any to get it into your head. Listen now and wake up to what's happening around you!
