This is far the most amazing book I have ever read. It is the best story of how revolutionaries become corrupted with power and create a tyranny over what should be a democratic society. Every animal in the farm suffered. The hard working class (animals such a boxer) became pillows for the leaders to lie upon. This book of Orwell portrays the truth behind the reality of communism, which clearly results in a totalitarian government, which suppresses its people to benefit itself.
The book was great overall, the narrator was great, and so was everything else. Although the most sad part of the story was when Boxer was taken to the slaughter house and killed.
I am aware that this story was inspired in part by the Soviet uprising but many of the points feel like commentary on human nature. We can fool ourselves easily when we want to believe an untruth or don't want to believe the reality. This is especially true when we try to recall our memories of events, people and how things used to be. Things are surely better now than they used to be...
One of my favorite fictional books. I'm so glad that I got to listen to it. It adds such a different element. Orwell is incredible with his storytelling abilities, especially when it comes to dystopia.
