Publisher's Summary

George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel - a scathing satire on a downtrodden society's blind march towards totalitarianism.The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, however, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

Excellently horrific

I have been listening to Dr. Jordan B. Peterson for quite a while now, where he (Dr. Peterson) would frequently discuss the horrors of communism. This is my first own read and exposure to a book that talks about the same horrors in which Dr. Peterson has often discussed.
I must say that George Orwell is brilliant in drawing out the horrors of a slow decent into a totalitarian authority, through such magnificent storytelling. Though the characters seemed somewhat comical (that being the case with animals that is human-level intelligent, and trying to do human things); the creeping diabolical rise of tyranny was very well felt as I went through the story.
I felt that the narration was well done (except a few mistakes here and there). It included some pretty nice voice-acting of the different characters. For me, it brought the characters to life, as I went through the story. The audio book is very low cost, and well-worth every penny it cost.

What happened to producers and editors?

The message behind this story is scary, giving a message on what man(animals) are brainwashed easily. They only believe what the boss relays. I do not care for the direction this book took - I am not reviewing on that basis. The author has worked hard. Sadly, I felt I was reading the children’s version of the life of Hitler.

Chapter 7 repeats itself. I listened on 2 different devices to confirm it. Even though the production was done well, the issues in Chapter 7 reduced my opinion of performance.

Luckily - you only loose 3 1/2 hours if you choose to listen.

Audio needs to be edited

This was a fine story and the performance was good. however in chapter 7 there is about 5 minutes of dialog that both repeats in sections but also includes the narrator struggling to pronounce coccidiosis. it's a bit funny but clearly the publishers failed to edit appropriately.

Classic story, excellent reading

A classic that everyone should read. it's short, but it needs to be listened to. The narrator was perfect and the story was intriguing.
