"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)
I'm glad; I listened to this. It was very entertaining to hear the story told through this analogy. It inspired me to compare it to some of the politics today. We are all just on Animal Farms; some just stink worst than others...
This literary classic Is a cautionary tale of the evils of totalitarianism.
Professionally and enjoyably performed.
loved it! how easily non-thinkers can be led astray by manipulative leaders. ignorance is slavery!
A much shorter story than 1984, Animal Farm is a brilliant allegory of the tendency of human governance. While succinct in its telling, this story captures the bare essence of what quiet acquiescence in political discourse leads to.
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.
