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
    "Such is life"

    It had been so long since I have read this that it was like new again. In retrospect, I am not surprised that this book holds up to a second read.

    "classic book on the eternal condition of man"

    Loved this book, although it is a bit depressing. Nevertheless, it is useful to be reminded at times of the true state of relations among men.

    Story
    "In time, anything can be twisted from it's intent."
    Any additional comments?

    I sit reading this old classic and my thoughts turn to current day politics. Though it was intended to be a mockery of communism, I'm starting to think it mirrors capitalism quite aptly now.

    "Great"

    I enjoyed the reading of this. For me I wanted something not too long and the story was so interesting. I recommend reading 1984 if you enjoyed this.
