Publisher's Summary

George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words. It is an account of the bold struggle that transforms Mr. Jones' Manor Farm into Animal Farm, a wholly democratic society built on the credo that All Animals Are Created Equal. Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that bears an insidious familiarity. The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is re-established with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others.

To supplement the full text version of George Orwell's Animal Farm, listen to the SparkNotes Guide for Animal Farm.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Something is missing"

    It started off very well but somehow lost the cause. I was hoping it would turn out good but started deteriorating as the book progressed.

    "Classic Story, Phenomenal Reading"

    The opening essay is very interesting, and gives great insight and perspective on a classic. The narrator is phenomenal, giving an extra depth to otherwise one dimensional characters. While the characters are purposely written as tropes, the subtle change and variety the narrator gives each character makes it entirely more poignant.

    "Great story, and a very nice performance."

    Another of those books I never should have waited so long to listen to. You'll understand why George Orwell is so highly-regarded as an author once you finish this, and the performance by Ralph Cosham was top notch.

    "Good narrator, predictable story"

    The narrator is great but the story itself wasn't all that amazing. It was written nicely but I found myself guessing the outcomes of situations over and over again.

    "Good Book"

    The narrator was good to hear but kind of made me sleepy. I like how the different characters had different voices which allowed me to imagine even further.

    "A Powerful, and Curiously Fun Portrait of Fascism."

    Orwell did a masterful job painting this allegory, drawn with a mix of good humor and stark horror.
