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)

    "A perfect allegory of corruption"

    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.

    "Wow"

    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.

    "Absolutely Fantastic"

    The story is excellent and the vocal performance is just as good. Even better if you have some knowledge of the Russian Revolution and the Stalin era of which its based.

    "Heard the references never knew the whole story"

    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.

    "A classic!"

    Animal farm is a timeless classic. It represents the maxim that power corrupts absolutely. The freedom fighter becomes the villan (the dictator).
