    Amazon's very Orwellian involvement with this book at the end. If Amazon ever partnered Facebook they'd own us. This is not really a review, but one of those moments where everything that was clear to you suddenly becomes utterly muddied and you really can't say what lies beneath th...

    This is a book I've been meaning to read for ages but never got around to - last week I not only read it but gave a lesson on the historical context for the grade 8 class, who will be reading this book and The Wave. As I found, out of the class of 24, about 20 of them had already read ...

    The only good pig is a dead pig. Yeah, yeah, everyone claims Orwell wrote this as about the Russian Revolution, Stalin, and the rise of Communism. Pshttt. Whatever. You know what I think he was really saying? Beware the Other White Meat! Ok, maybe not. Look, I kn...

    A perfect book. People will still be reading this in a thousand years time, when communism is just a footnote. ...

    ?All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.? Those damn PIGS. I can't even. ...

    Funnily enough, i read this book as a child and thought that it really WAS about animals. I remember thinking, Evil Pigs, I'm glad you're bacon in MY world, and Poor Hardworking Horsies, come live on my farm instead. You can have all the hay and makopa you want (sadly, no apples, tropi...

    564. Animal Farm, George Orwell Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union. Orwe...

    All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Okay, this is why I avoid "great literature." I get that this is an important novel, but good lawd. I did not enjoy it. A Big Effing Disclaimer Just because I don't like a novel doesn't mean I didn't "get" it....

    I first read this in Grade 11 and decided it was my favourite book. I knew a reread needed to happen right away, but it took me four years to finally get around to it when my boyfriend gifted me this beautiful illustrated edition. Animal Farm is a book I often think about and often quo...

    "I won't read again to this writer", that was my first impression to "ANIMAL FARM". George Orwell was recommend to me by his two most famous books:"ANIMAL FARM" and "1984", and I had started reading "ANIMAL FARM" first by chance. Then I though that Orwell, almost, hadn't have some...

    This book is featured on Shabby Sunday @ https://readrantrockandroll.com/2018/... I read Animal Farm when I was in college and it was one of those reads where you think it?s going to be boring, but it turns out to be a favorite. It?s an allegorical tale representing the Russian ...

    Under the leadership of the pigs, the animals of Manor Farm overthrow their human owner and go into business for themselves with all animals doing their part. However, some parts involve a lot less work than others and things quickly change... I somehow managed to dodge this landmin...

    ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS ! In the start, I thought this book would be from the view point of animals; about how they are treated, how they expect to be treated and how man is cruel towards them. But but but; I am amazed at how Orwell criticizes the p...

    Animal Farm is a dystopian tale of revolution and the ensuing government that takes over afterwards. It could easily be a symbolism of most revolutions that occur in history. A new leader comes in and it?s the same as the old leader. Rinse. Repeat. (Note to self): Must. Not. Get....

    George OrwellI got stunned for a while when I finished Animal Farm-a masterpiece from George Orwell- for the novella depicts our society so perfectly- the role of power, how corrupts those who are apex of a social system and eventually they eliminate their competitors, and it happens w...

    George Orwell's Animal Farm is undeniably one of the best short novels ever written in the English language. It is a deceptively simple tale, which even older children could read. About an animal uprising, it is written in the style of a fable, and yet it can be read on so many levels....

    George Orwell leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. This is a blatant political statement. There?s no reading between the lines in order to ascertain the meaning, it?s all here on the page. After around page twenty it was very obvious how this book would end. History repeat...

    "They always call the other side ?the elite?. Why are they elite? I have a much better apartment than they do. I?m smarter than they are. I?m richer than they are. I became president and they didn?t. And I?m representing the greatest, smartest most loyal best people on Eart...

    Not as formidable as 1984, this modern day fable, though, bears down hard on socialism and even more on the very aspects of our nature that brings power struggles about. First published in 1945, this allegorical criticism of Stalinist communism is nonetheless still relevant today as...

    Wow. Everything about this was so clever. I think my mind just exploded. Around the Year in 52 Books Challenge Notes: 8. A classic with less than 200 pages ...

    I absolutely loved this book. It wasn't boring to me at all. I think Orwell did a great job of symbolizing all the injustice that happens in name of an outside force and how simple minded people who do not educate themselves get taken advantage from, be it West for Soviet Russia, Ameri...

    The inherent evil in Teletubbies. The satanic perversion of one very Disneyfied utopia. Orwell's super scary fairy tale is PERFECT. The tenderness in the animals easily translates to that shared by all mankind for itself. And, oh, so easily do modern political players fill the spots of...

    Animal Farm was such a great book and demands a re-read. That time is way overdue it has been a while since I read this and I was trying to find a way to review what Orwell was trying to convey in this story. I found couple of good reviews that put it so much better in perspective so w...

    The inherent evil in Teletubbies. The satanic perversion of one very Disneyfied utopia. Orwell's super scary fairy tale is PERFECT. The tenderness in the animals easily translates to that shared by all mankind for itself. And, oh, so easily do modern political players fill the spots of...

    The man-to-pig metamorphosis is wellknown since Odysseus met Circe, but the opposite transformation works equally well. Probably more equally well than the other way round, considering the privileged equality of pigs. One could almost get the notion that pigs and men are interchange...

    ?All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.? When I read this in school I flew through it. I do remember it made me uncomfortable, but at the time I couldn't figure out why. I don't think I understood very much of it. Reading it so many years later,...

    ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS ! In the start, I thought this book would be from the view point of animals; about how they are treated, how they expect to be treated and how man is cruel towards them. But but but; I am amazed at how Orwell criticizes the p...

    Animal Farm is a dystopian tale of revolution and the ensuing government that takes over afterwards. It could easily be a symbolism of most revolutions that occur in history. A new leader comes in and it?s the same as the old leader. Rinse. Repeat. (Note to self): Must. Not. Get....

    George OrwellI got stunned for a while when I finished Animal Farm-a masterpiece from George Orwell- for the novella depicts our society so perfectly- the role of power, how corrupts those who are apex of a social system and eventually they eliminate their competitors, and it happens w...

    George Orwell's Animal Farm is undeniably one of the best short novels ever written in the English language. It is a deceptively simple tale, which even older children could read. About an animal uprising, it is written in the style of a fable, and yet it can be read on so many levels....

    George Orwell leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. This is a blatant political statement. There?s no reading between the lines in order to ascertain the meaning, it?s all here on the page. After around page twenty it was very obvious how this book would end. History repeat...

    Animal Farm was such a great book and demands a re-read. That time is way overdue it has been a while since I read this and I was trying to find a way to review what Orwell was trying to convey in this story. I found couple of good reviews that put it so much better in perspective so w...

    The inherent evil in Teletubbies. The satanic perversion of one very Disneyfied utopia. Orwell's super scary fairy tale is PERFECT. The tenderness in the animals easily translates to that shared by all mankind for itself. And, oh, so easily do modern political players fill the spots of...

    Amazon's very Orwellian involvement with this book at the end. If Amazon ever partnered Facebook they'd own us. This is not really a review, but one of those moments where everything that was clear to you suddenly becomes utterly muddied and you really can't say what lies beneath th...

    This is a book I've been meaning to read for ages but never got around to - last week I not only read it but gave a lesson on the historical context for the grade 8 class, who will be reading this book and The Wave. As I found, out of the class of 24, about 20 of them had already read ...

    The only good pig is a dead pig. Yeah, yeah, everyone claims Orwell wrote this as about the Russian Revolution, Stalin, and the rise of Communism. Pshttt. Whatever. You know what I think he was really saying? Beware the Other White Meat! Ok, maybe not. Look, I kn...
