George Orwell’s famous satire of the Soviet Union, in which “all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
George Orwell wrote this satirical novella in response to the rise of Stalinism in post-revolution Russia. Turns out, the book’s messages about propaganda, elitism, and hypocrisy in politics are ageless. At face value, Animal Farm is a story about a farm where the animals revolt against their caretakers, taking control of their society. But Orwell's razor-sharp writing turns Animal Farm’s pigs and horses into stark illustrations of how even the best intentions can be poisoned by an overwhelming desire for power.
I loved this book. This should be assigned reading at most schools. It teaches a lot but it is also a classic that more people should read.
A great great about the horrors of communism
I enjoyed the animals, especially, Boxer the horse, and Moses the Raven. This book details the dangers of Communism, and how absolute power corrupts absolutely.
