"Animal Farm"

No animal may drink alcohol "to excess"

A fairy tale or a nightmare? It all began with a dream by Major, a Middle White boar, of equality, and freedom from oppression. Maybe not in our life comrade, but eventually.

The dream brings a song. Intolerable conditions lead to revolution. As time passes things change; not exactly as planned.

There are two striking parts to this tale that stand out. First when Boxer is sent to the hospital and Benjamin reads the side of the van "Horse Slaughterer." Secondly there was a party in the farm house as the pigs were playing cards with the men, two aces of spades showed up. An argument ensues. Then a realization was drawn by the creatures outside looking in as they "...looked from pig to man, and man to pig, and from pig to man again..."

------------------------------------------------------------

"1984"

Deviates corrected for their own good

In a society that has eliminated many imbalances, surplus goods, and even class struggle, there are bound to be deviates; Winston Smith is one of those. He starts out, due to his inability to doublethink, with thoughtcrime. This is in a society that believes a thought is as real as the deed. Eventually he graduates through a series of misdemeanors to illicit sex and even plans to overthrow the very government that took him in as an orphan.

If he gets caught, he will be sent to the "Ministry of Love" where they have a record of 100% cures for this sort of insanity. They will even forgive his past indiscretions.

Be sure to watch the three different movies made from this book:

1984 (1954) Peter Cushing is Winston Smith

1984 (1956) Edmond O'Brien is Winston Smith

Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) John Hurt is Winston smith

An inexpensive and excellent book that includes both Animal Farm and 1984. It's definitely nice having the two together. It arrived on time and the price was right for these two classics.

Both books are politically relevant now just as they were in 1948 and 1951. 1984 is in particular one of the most influential books of the 20th century. Along with animal farm this makes for one of the best bar-gins I've ever seen on an books in hardcover especially since both are quite amazing.

The two pieces in the Book are both fantastic works of literature. Animal farm is is a reflective satire based on the soviet take over in Russia. 1984 is a piece that translates the importance of freedom of thought and the evils of censorship and a totalitarian rule. Although I assume that the reason any person would look into the hard cover combination is cause they have read both the books already, and need no review other than aesthetics. the the dust cover is not of a glossy nature, though it does look absolutely beautiful

A beautifully binded book that is a wonderful way to have these two classics on your bookshelf.

I chose to take the book cover off.

Classic stories. Nicely made hardcover book. Great price. If you are looking to extend your growing library with timeless tales, this is a good choice with two very well known thought provoking titles that are as relevant today as when they were written.

1984: A brilliant piece, unfortunately timeless - a lot of what's written as fiction is still very recognizable. Thought-stirring as all good literature ought to be.
