Product Description

Review

Animal Farm remains our great satire on the darker face of modern history.” –Malcolm Bradbury

“As lucid as glass and quite as sharp…[Animal Farm] has the double meaning, the sharp edge, and the lucidity of Swift.” –Atlantic Monthly

“A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable for our times.” –New York Times

“Orwell has worked out his theme with a simplicity, a wit, and a dryness that are close to La Fontaine and Gay, and has written in a prose so plain and spare, so admirably proportioned to his purpose, that Animal Farm even seems very creditable if we compare it with Voltaire and Swift.” –Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker

“Orwell’s satire here is amply broad, cleverly conceived, and delightfully written.” –San Francisco Chronicle

“The book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years.” –Ruth Rendell

With an Introduction by Julian Symons --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

all animals are equal but some animals are more equal - this statement still reflects today's society, one that should be free and liberal yet we have the 1% vs the 99%, religious freedom versus LGBT rights, extermist ideologies versus democratic puppetry. This is a relevant allegory in 21st century living.

I watched a film adaptation of this book when I was a child, and it managed to traumatize me. I didn't think I'd ever read this book because of it, but my cousin kept praising it, so I bit the bullet and ordered it. It matches my copy of 1984, which I thought would be the only thing I liked about it. I was wrong. This book took just one afternoon to read and I flew through it despite having to set it down repeatedly. The characters were so well developed, and it was simply eerie how well the pigs managed to convince the other animals of everything. I enjoyed this book far more than I ever expected, and I'm so thankful to have read it, though I doubt I'll re-watch the movie, just in case.

This is Orwell's most powerful work of allegory on Stalin and his mad man rule over Russia. Go through this one day reader and you will find reminders and cautions to today's easily manipulated mass media craving population

It took longer for this book to get to me than it did to read it as it was shipped from the UK. Great satire of the Russian revolution though. Would recommend reading something like "Ten Days That Shook The World" first to get some of the references.

First rate fable illustrating how any country must guard against having its virtues and aspirations subtly undermined by distortions, misrepresentations, and outright camouflaged betrayal -- think the Soviet Union in the past, and, in the present, I urge
Canadian citizens enduring the Harper government to be vigilant against the dismantling of social safety net implemented years ago, and now being intentionally undermined.

Frankly, anyone alive today and seeing the effects of the new leftist/totalitarian collectivist destruction of individual rights would do well to read, or re-read this along with 1984 and do it quickly before the Enlightenment gives way to the new Dark-Green-Age of Islamic supremacy.

Great book. Its fun to read and my kids love reading it as well. I love that the art work is done by Shepard Fairey. He is one of my favorite political artists . . . he does the Obey art.
As far as the seller goes I have no issues there. I got my book on/before expected delivery. The book came in great condition. The price is great because it is a reprint, originals are thousands of dollars.

This is a timeless treasure and should be read at every secondary level school in the free world to remind people how easily facism can start and get out of control.

I remember ready in at about my grade 8 level and it lead to some awesome doscussions.

I was just as fascinated by this great story this time around even though I am now nearly 66 years old! 😊
