"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)
Interested in mostly history, biographies, autobiographies, classics, and Great Courses...with some Sci Fi thrown in for fun!
Animal Farm is a classic among classics, and Cosham does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life.
This is a classic that I read along time ago but reading it today seemed so fitting.
The reading was well done.
Yes, you cant read and drive.
Snowball... hes Leon Trotsky, nuff said.
He sang Beasts of England.
The Russian Revolution.
Georgie, come back from the grave and write a sequal.
This book is raved about and so I thought it would be good, but it wasn't. I was expecting the links between the animals and humans to be more subtle, meaning the reader had to think about the book, but they were blatantly obvious.
He could have made the plot less obvious. Also I feel the first few and the last few chapters were important and the rest was really just filler.
The fact that he made a dull book mildly tolerable is an achievement. I thought the different voices made the book more colourful. It was very well read.
The better question is which character WOULDN'T I cut.
Don't wast your time with this book if you want to listen to something with substance.
The similarity between the 'farm' and most events worldwide today just amazingly fit.
Happening Now. And forever.
The intro is horrible!! It should not be read BEFORE THe book! Don't listed to it. Skip to chapter 2.
Introduction gives away the whole plot. Luckily, I've read a review with a suggestion to skip it and come back to it after finishing the book.
The introduction pretty much described the entirety of the book, so I listened for about half of it and lost interest because I already knew the progression of the story. I would have been much more into it without that intro.
