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.

A Classic that Wears Very Well

I read Animal Farm many, many years ago. I had the memory of enjoying it very much and feeling that it was a true classic.

But I had forgotten many of its elements and features and wanted to have the experience again. I’m glad I did.

The story is as powerful as I remember. And so many of the details were fantastic to follow and study anew. The lessons to be learned and the historical analogues were clear and sharp. And the book was as relevant as the day it was written and the day I first read it.

I strongly recommend this audiobook. The narration is superb as well.

Great book, bad sound

The book was amazing and the narrator did a great job. The only complaint I have is with the sound. The sound goes from very loud to very quiet throughout the book, you have to continually change the volume setting even in a car.

Great thought provoking story!

I really enjoyed this story by George Orwell. Each event and the transitions/changes that took place on the farm really makes you think and question the work culture of society.
A very good read!
The voice acting was wonderful, unfortunately the editing was poorly done in chapter 7. Other than that the performance was great! I really felt the emotions of each character portrayed.

The fantastic story that describes humanity

The story reminds me of one of society in 2022. I understand that George Orwell wrote it as an allusion to the particular country in 1945, but it still fits somewhere today.

Exceptional but not perfect

The reader was clear and well spoken and engaging with his voices. The only critique is some editing errors in chapter 7 where mistakes were left in

Feels a little close to reality

Great look into how tyranny can take over and leave everyone scratching their head.

Great book, ok narration

I love animal farm. It's a great book and I'm glad I have the audiobook. However, this narration isn't great. The narrator has a very stop and start pattern. He isn't smooth and there are a few places where sections are repeated or two parts are played over each other.

The story is great, but another version might have been a better decision to get
