Farm is a fable with a sting. Much has been written about the
threat of Communism, but it remained to the late George Orwell,
farsighted British author of the brilliant and frightening 1984, to
expose the Russian experiment for what it really is; an idealist's
dream, converted by realists into a nightmare. In staged dramatic
reading version of this timely allegory you will meet beasts whose
prototypes have dominated news headlines for many fearful years. Opening
on a note of joyous triumph for the creatures who have emancipated
themselves from the cruel mastery of a human owner, the reading mounts
inexorably to a climax of disillusionment in which the other animals
discover themselves now subject to the rule of even more ruthless
autocrats: the greedy, cunning pigs. Intermingling humor and drama,
Animal Farm wrings the emotions of its listeners, leaving
audiences shaken with the tale of a tragedy that happened in a mythical
barnyard far away but could happen in our own back yard.
Nov 08, 2008This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. 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 :)
Jun 13, 2008Amazon's very Orwellian involvement with this book at the end. If Amazon ever partnered Facebook they'd own us.

Aug 26, 2007Funnily 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).
Sep 22, 2019I did NOT expect to love this like I did. I thought it would be one that I would be happy I read but didn't enjoy. Nope. I loved this book. Not only was the message clear and strong, but put in a disturbing way that'll stick with me. It was entertaining as a story alone but that ending packed a very real punch. Loved it.
Sep 21, 2015I 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.

Jun 25, 2013George 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.

Dec 13, 2016Under 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...
Oct 31, 2015Animal 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.
Aug 02, 2011Not 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.

Mar 12, 2012George 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.
Apr 16, 2017George 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 George Orwell leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. This is a blatant political statement.

Sep 16, 2017The inherent evil in Teletubbies. The satanic perversion of one very Disneyfied utopia. Orwell's super scary fairy tale is actually 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 pigs or dogs.
Jun 21, 2018"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 Earth – the deplorables, remember that?"
Jan 15, 2016Wow. Everything about this was so clever. I think my mind just exploded.
Feb 01, 2008I 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.
