This edition features George Orwell's best known novels – 1984 and Animal Farm – with an introduction by Christopher Hitchens.
In 1984, London is a grim city where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith joins a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.
Animal Farm is Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution -- an account of the bold struggle, initiated by the animals, that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into Animal Farm--a wholly democratic society built on the credo that All Animals Are Created Equal. But are they?
This is a book you’ll still think about years after finishing it!
Brilliantly captures human nature in the socialist Marxist applied theory in such a way it doesn’t feel quite political.
While reading Animal Farm, I couldn't shake the feeling of familiarity. The truth is, in 2016, the same thing is happening to America. I would say the parrellels are hilarious, but it is no laughing matter.
A must read for every American who cares about the state of their country and the world, as well as an interesting read in general. The introduction is beautiful, and the books are vivid. Animal Farm in particular is an easy read. And an extremely educating and important one.
