“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.

Canadian citizens enduring the Harper government to be vigilant against the dismantling of social safety net implemented years ago, and now being intentionally undermined.
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.
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! 😊

Great story and had a lot of laughs and times of self contemplation. Occasionally I had to set the book down and think about what had just transpired. Read morePublished 10 days ago by BrandonH
I received authentical book, but I prefer LARGE letter, because it's very difficult for me to read a really small letter.Published 1 month ago by Elena Kovalchuk
Very enjoyable read that includes insights related to humans and human society. Some of the themes are reminiscent of Orwell's 1984.Published 4 months ago by Robert J Fisher
