Tired of their servitude to man, a group of farm animals revolt and establish their own society, only to be betrayed into worse servitude by their leaders, the pigs, whose slogan becomes: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." Published in 1945, this powerful satire of the Russian Revolution under Stalin remains as vivid and relevant today as it was on its first publication. Including Orwell's proposed preface to the original edition and his preface to the 1947 Ukrainian edition, this special edition also features a series of magnificent color & black and white illustrations by Ralph Steadman.

What I Liked The Historical Significance and How Well It's Done Anyone can write a story arising from bitterness towards the current political state, but George Orwell is really good at simplifying it and making the absolute mess that was Stalin's rise to power look just as ridiculous and inconcei...

5.0 ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell
I cannot believe I did not read this in high school. What a marvelous book! I'd love to be writing essays on this now, especially with life experience behind me. This may have been written in 1946 but it resonates today. I could see so many parallels to what is happening today. Change the people in ...

3.0 Animal Farm
Super short review: It's weird reading classics like this one as an adult when many people read them in High School or younger. I'm glad I read it. I get what Orwell was doing. I appreciated the social commentary/satire presented in a fairy tale format. And it's interesting, now that I've read thi...
