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.
Riveting story, engaging and thought provoking
Squealer was one of the most interesting characters to me
He's an excellent narrator and truly acts out the entire story and brought it to life more than if I had read it from a book
Its such a powerful story, I just found it very engaging - I was eager to listen to it. Its upsetting and thought provoking - it didn't make me laugh or cry but it certainly made me think a lot
I love that it was only a few hours. It is hard to find an audio book as good as this that is so short - in fact so far this is the only one I've found - which is perfect for someone like me who has very limited time in the car to listen to audiobooks
If you are looking for a great way to get through Animal Farm, you'll want to get this. The reader does an excellent job. The book includes an introduction about why Orwell wrote this book and the type of literature he saw it as.
