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)

    "It's okay"

    This book ended with a cliffhanger. An had only one setting, which is the Manner Farm. It could use more.

    "One of the best performance I could have asked for!"

    I had to read this book for my school and this is one of the best performances I could have asked for. He articulated the words very clearly and went at a good pace. He also created different voices for each character that perfectly matched them which gave them more life and distinguished them.

    "classic novel, excellent narration"

    Read this in high school, but it's much better now that I know more about Russian history. the narrator is excellent; he gives a solid performance without any showy and annoying flourishes.

    "Great book!"

    My homeschooled 15 year old twins will be reading this book next school year. I wanted to get a head start. Can't wait for them to read it so we can discuss it. Great story for high schoolers.

    "great book"

    Orwell shows an amazing ability glimpse what would happen if the populace were to become less educated and written history more fluid creating an easily controlled society.
