    1. 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 En [...]

    2. Review edited to include at the end s very Orwellian involvement with this book.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 the murky waters although a moment before you were sure you could.I m reading Christopher Hitchen s astonishingly percipient and brilliant Arguably Essays I read Animal Farm too young to identify the individual animals with actual characters on the st [...]

    3. 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 know what you re thinking, That pig looks adorable , but the next thing you know, that piggy is all grown up and stealing your cookies And you ll let it steal your cookies because Mr Pig has convinced you that giving up your cookies every day was [...]

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

    5. 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, tropical climate.I reread it after education spoiled my natural inclinations for fast and absolute punishment of evildoers and eternal rewards for the good I do find it pleasantly strange that these animals are symbols for [...]

    6. 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 something to talk about in his other book because he has summarized up all what is happening in the occupied revolutions Later, I knew that 1984 was about Dystopian world that occurs after ANIMAL FARM s world and Overall, the book wa [...]

    7. 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 quote, and it was a bit nerve wracking to go back to it to see if it actually lived up to everything I had built it up to be Thankfully, I m thrilled to say it did.In many ways it s a little bit underwhelming the second [...]

    8. 564 Animal Farm, George OrwellAnimal 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 Orwell, a democratic socialist, was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow directed Stalinism, an attitude that was critically shaped by his experiences during the Spanish Civil War The Soviet Union, he believed, h [...]

    9. 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 changeI somehow managed to dodge this landmine in high school and the ensuing couple decades However, I had a few conversations about it at work and decided it was time to give it a read.Animal Farm is a dystopian tale of revolution and the ensuing government Accordi [...]

    10. 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 with almost every social system, it s like a treatise on our society.Napolean is not inherently evil, Napoleon s subsequent adoption of nearly all of Mr Jones principles and after that the animals treat fellow animals [...]

    11. This book is featured on Shabby Sunday readrantrockandroll 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 Revolution where the characters in the book represent people during this time.I won t go into the plot too much, but in a nutshell, this story is about a group of farm animals who rise up against the evil farmer who cares for them They basi [...]

    12. 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 Too Political With This Review.I absolutely loved this book and the tale of this animal farm should concern anyone that believes in a free thinking society All it takes is a revolution, distrust in facts, listening to false propag [...]

    13. 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, America for Iran or Terrorists for the United states.

    14. 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 It is clearly both a satire and an allegory, a dystopian tale, and its author George Orwell made no secret of what regime, and which politicians, he was so mercilessly parodying Yet as with all great novels, it speak [...]

    15. 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

    16. Not as formidable as 1984, this modern day fable, though, bears down hard on socialism and even 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 a cautionary satire on totalitarianism in general.

    17. Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland,Beasts of every land and clime,Hearken to my joyful tidingsOf the golden future time.Soon or late the day is coming,Tyrant Man shall be o erthrown,And the fruitful fields of EnglandShall be trod by beasts alone.Rings shall vanish from our noses,And the harness from our back,Bit and spur shall rust forever,Cruel whips no shall crack.Riches than mind can picture,Wheat and barley, oats and hay,Clover, beans, and mangel wurzelsShall be ours upon that d [...]

    18. 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 repeats itself and in this case it goes full circle Nothing changes And a wise old Donkey was the only one in the piece aware of this We can presume he has seen it before, though, on a character level he was a bit of an ass not [...]

    19. I read this in high school and hated it because it terrified me.It still terrifies me.Read this.

    20. 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 why try myself when it s been written about by so many people When I read it again in the not so distant future I will add my own thoughts So here s to what some readers wrote in a couple of other websites.Power corru [...]

    21. All animals are equal but some animals are equal than others What a great book I can t believe I haven t read it before Written at a time when the evils of communism hadn t been fully exposed and some still thought it could work in practice, Animal Farm was sure to be an eye opener.The setting is a normal farm controlled and managed by humans But one day the animals have had enough of being oppressed and abused as human slaves They rise up and take over the farm Their goal is for all animals to [...]
