    ALL ANIMALS ARE EUAL BUT SOME ARE MORE EUAL 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 themBut but but;I am amazed at how Orwell criticizes the political maneuvers and totalitarian rule using animals to explain what humans do The author beautifully portrays the way a revolution is started to stop what is happenin

Read Animal Farm A Fairy Story

Nist Russia was seen as its target Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked under whatever banner the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell’s masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fres. Update after my February 2020 Re readA lot has happened in the world since I read this in high school in the mid 1990s The book is as interesting and powerful as I remember However I think having an adult perspective on life government laws taxes rights etc makes this a much powerful for me now than it was when I was a teenager One of the great things about this book too is that it is not very long I think that morality tales with political undertones can be daunting if you know you are dealing with a 300 page book This tells a strong tale in 125 pages or so that is easy to read but difficult to swallow An allegory that is a must read for allI will also say that this book has an ending that I remember as being wow but not super shocking as a teenager Now it is absolutely terrifying it gave me chillsOriginal reviewOne of the best no doubt So much symbolism and meaning crammed into such a small book Also a great use of anthropomorphism I just wanted to use a big fancy sounding wordReview wise that is about all I need to say it is great read itBut I will add this anecdote I read this when I was in High School as reuired reading Most reuired reading books were long and not all that exciting I am looking at you Jane Eyre But this one was so good that I couldn t put it down And since it is so short I read it in one night Well the teacher had assigned chapters and asked us not to read ahead Still hard to believe I got in trouble for reading too much of a reuired reading book

Review Ê eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ö George Orwell

Librarian's note There is an Alternate Cover Edition for this edition of this book hereA farm is taken over by its overworked mistreated animals With flaming idealism and stirring slogans they set out to create a paradise of progress justice and euality 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 book and at least one kid knew it was an allegory of the Russian Revolution Still my lesson wasn t totally redundant For anyone who isn t familiar with the story Animal Farm is about the animals on a farm in England rising up against the incompetent cruel farmer Mr Jones who represents the deposed Tsar Nicholas II and taking over the farm renaming it Animal Farm USSR and so the glorious vision intended running it for themselves so their lives would be betterThe vision is given to them by a pig Old Major who dies not long afterwards Old Major probably represents Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx and it s not the socialist ideal put forward that is critiued by this book but how that vision is corrupted by certain other characters namely another pig called Napoleon who represents Joseph Stalin Napoleon chases a pig called Snowball Leon Trotsky off the farm with his personally trained dogs while still just the General Secretary of the Party Stalin recruited people who would follow him blindly so that when Lenin died in 1924 he was able to defeat Trotsky for the leadership position and his dogs kept everyone else in lineThe pigs then take charge and with their literacy skills keep changing the rules the animals established in order to suit themselves using a pig called Suealer to convince the other animals that their memories are faulty After all as the drafthorse Boxer keeps saying Comrade Napoleon is always rightBoxer is for me the most heartbreaking character in the novel He represents the peasants and is the most hardworking animal on the farm He has utter faith in the leadership of Napoleon and works himself to the bone literally His reward is very telling though I don t want to give it away Most of the characters represent either a person several people or groups of people and for the complete list you can check it out on WikipediaOrwell while a socialist was very cynical about Stalin s communist USSR and for good reason Animal Farm is a very well written critiue of how socialist ideals are corrupted by powerful people how the uneducated masses are taken advantage of and how the dictator or communist leaders turn into capitalists just look at China It s a wonderful example of how effective the allegorical styleformat can be and a well deserved classic
