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.

3.5 Book Review: Animal Farm by George Orwell
I'm usually the girl who doesn't like the classics, but in this case, I really liked this book. Well, I say I liked it, but what I really mean is that it was easy reading with a compelling story. It's just so depressing actually. Yes, it's a satire on communism in Russia, but it's so bloody spot on ...

4.0 Audiobook Review: Animal Farm by George Orwell
For all the controversy surrounding this novel, I was surprised by how short it actually is. However, for all its lack of length, it sure does pack an important message. The allegory was a bit didactic for me — I felt like I was being beat over the head with the message, but I haven’t read an alle...

5.0 Beast Fables Abound!
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...
