"A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable of our times....The steadiness and lucidity of Orwell's merciless wit are reminiscent of Anatole France and even of Swift." (The New York Times Book Review)
it is no secret that this book is about the Russian Revolution, but it's still bears repeating because when you boil down all of the complicated elements into such a simple story, it makes it that much more despicable, disheartening, and tragic.
I didn't expect to like this story so much. I had never read it before so it was new to me. What a fantastic story. Very though provoking and it keeps your interest. Take a few hours of your time and listen to this book, you won't regret it.
i like most had enough passing familiarity to catch the pop culture references to the novel, but was surprised by the depth of the analogy and the ending. in some ways more pwerful than 1984.
Animal farm is a timeless classic. It represents the maxim that power corrupts absolutely. The freedom fighter becomes the villan (the dictator).
