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)

    Story
    "Good performance and poetic introduction."

    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...

    "Outstanding"

    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.

    Just buy it. The narrator does a good job and this was a hard story to stop listening to.

    "get sucked in!"

    great shot story, you get sucked in and want to finish it! I would have liked to read this one before "1984" but that is just my preference, I can go back and listen to it again.
