Animal Farm is an amazing work by George Orwell. In this, he makes use of his stupefying imagination and prowess to exploit his wit to throw light on the tragedy of modern history. The book deals with the uprising of animals against humans eventually becoming the one to the extent that it becomes difficult to differentiate between them. The book is a satire on the hegemony of the humans first, and then, of the pigs. A short book with loads of intellectual food to feed your brains!
It's been a really good experience overall with Amazing Reads publications.
As known to all, the book is a comment on the events which took place in Russia. Right from the shift of power, manipulation of facts, dictatorship and abuse of power, Orwell criticised all of it by using animals to highlight the ugly state of affairs. 🐷
One can also read the book in a general way by relating it to the actions of most of the people in power, who take advantage of others and manipulate things in their favour.
. Good typesetting
. Fluid, easy language, so also suitable for beginners in English literature
. Much like 1984 and points out the hypocrisies in Communism throught great allegories and plot which only Orwell can create
. If read before or after 1984, it becomes better.
. The book is small sized and spans only 143 pages. Ideal to read in a long flight/long train jouney uninterrupted and alone.
I cannot even begin to measure the book's greatness in an Amazon review.
Great book, great product.
If you are seeing this, go for it.
Pigs are intelligent when compared to other animals. Taking this into advantage pigs starts being at a better position. Soon all the good things are allowed for the pigs. The prior rules or commandments are changed according to their own comfort.
Sadly this can be related to actual communal situation. Once having power they are ready to do every sort of thing for their own benefit. Eliminate of anyone stands against them. Even many powerful people do follow this.
People need to be educated and understand how this will affect us. Can be related to communism.
Present day example, shabarimala problem created by the cpim gov to make people fight over religion. It just relatable to this book's situation. Powerful people have control over everything whereas others are revolting but not so fruitful.
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
Author: George Orwell
A classic! A masterpiece! George Orwell, half a century ago, created a literary piece which has clearly portrayed the today's civilization and society. The meaning of freedom and equality and it's practical face in today's world is shown in a clever way via farm animals. Orwell's depiction of pigs as the bloodsucking politicians and aristocrats, the dogs as the evil muscle power, the common farm animals as the lower class, the horses as the brainless hardworking class, the donkey as the silent spectator, the hens as the depreciated minority, the cows as the underprivileged farmers and many other references were top notch. The tag line 'All animals are equal, some are more equal than the others' is by far the perfect meaning of equality in our civilization.
Animal Farm is not a satisfactory tale, it is not a feel-good story to rejoice upon, it is the harsh bitter truth of reality. The ending paragraph clearly states that even after realising the reality we are and we stay with out hands bound, to do nothing and live always in a state of agony like as in digging one's own grave.
A five stars for Animal Farm
Highly recommend to all..
Orwell has brought forward a dark period through animals brilliantly.
It is a social satire but the language is very simple. Everyone must read this. Nothing more I want to say,just read it.. Appropriate for everyone,only the perception about the story will vary depending upon the age group. Moreover,if you are a literature student,read it!
