WORTH CONSUMING!

An observation on how good intentions can turn out badly soon due to ‘human’ nature. I read this in a couple of hours on a parkbench in the sun. It’s an easy and quick read. Not as dark and as deep as Orwell’s 1984, but very well written too. You could even read this to kids, and I’m sure they’d get the point the author is trying to make as well.

This was one of the first ‘required reading’ books in high school that I can remember really enjoying. Loved it!

WORTH CONSUMING!

This book was originally written with an eye towards describing communism but I think it also hits the nail on the head regarding capitalism and ultimatley democracy as a whole.One only has to look at America in it’s current state to see that.

Like John Edwards is famous for saying about the two Americas, one for the rich and another for everyone else.

All animals are equal/But some are more equal than others.

This plays out everyday in the criminal justice system, healthcare and so on. An old motto of America was work hard and everything will work out for you. Heck now about 46% of Americans can’t even afford healthcare.

When looking thru that window you now can’t tell the difference between a communist or a capitalist. All the money ends up going to only about 2% of the population either way.

WORTH CONSUMING!

“Animal Farm” is a tremendous book, and it doesn’t take long to read.

It’s a true eye-opener; not an optimistic one regarding the heart of man.

Orwell doesn’t tell me much I don’t know, because I’ve read “1984” and other books in this genre. However, the way he tells this story, it hits you smack in the gut.

NOT WORTH CONSUMING

Maybe I’m just a little sick of this book, considering I’ve had to study it again and again since 8th grade. And I understood it completely then, because there is just not that much to get. Yes, the animals represent people and ideas. Yeah, I get that Boxer is a reference to the Boxer Rebellion. Frankly, I’m sick of it. Let’s face it: Orwell is unavoidable in a high school cirriculum, and teachers have to choose between the complex, or at least more in depth 1984, or the simple, easy and clear Animal Farm. And they keep choosing Animal Farm. I have an idea- this book should be taught to kids in grade school and then never taught again. It’s simple, plain, no longer interesting, and I’m done with it.

WORTH CONSUMING!

I had read this book when I was in school and at that time it was like a fairy tale as the book says it is! But after being in the corporate rat race for a while, I have a whole new perspective to it. Everywhere I look I see pigs in suits in the corner offices and Mollies strutting their stuff doing nothing. I am Boxer, I see everything but cannot understand any of it…that’s why I carry on.

This book is timeless, each time you pick it up you get a new angle to your life!

Orwell for kids! I love it!

A story about this — 9 years ago

I read George Orwell’s Animal Farm sometime back. I really loved the way Orwell makes use of substitution and allegory to tell a very pertinent and politically motivated tale. His analysis of human psychology is truly mind-boggling. Greed is not just presented as an emotion, it is a reality throughout the book. The way the pigs make use of the other animals to live a regal life themselves can find many a equivalents in the real world. And the way the laws are bent and broken is so real that you almost find yourself finding instances in newspapers when you read them next time. The message tends to live beyond the last page: “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others”.

A very thin book which should be on the read-list of every person.

I read this when I was twelve or thirteen and it has changed my perspective of the world.

A story about this — 10 years ago

This book was a very interesting, veiled criticism of our culture and government, set in a story that was easily understood and fun to read. It will never lose it’s relevance.

A story about this — 10 years ago

Wow… what a great book! It’s very similar to 1984 (even though it was written beforehand). Simply put, Animal Farm is “Power corrupts.” It’s a sad story; I don’t think humanity is in danger of such a future…
