Description

Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in the UK in 1945. It is the tale of farm animals that rebel against the farmer, intending to establish a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. With stirring slogans, they set out to create utopia. However, the rebellion is betrayed and the farm ends up in a state worse than it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon. 

This is the setting for one of the most revealing satiric fables of all time - an acerbic tale for adults that records the process from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism which is even worse. When Animal Farm was first published, Stalinist Russia was its target. Today it is quite clear that wherever and whenever freedom is suppressed, the message of George Orwell’s masterpiece is still relevant. Time Magazine chose the book as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. It also features at number 31 on the Modern Library List of Best 20th-Century Novels.

Outstanding Allegory - Poor Performance

This is an interesting story about a working farm that rebels from control by humans and deteriorates into infighting, hypocrisy, authoritarianism, and violence. Orwell uses a story about an English farm as a model for this brilliant treatment of his interpretation of what happened after the Russian Revolution - complete with characters representing Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin. The writing is brilliant and the imagery startling. The narrative is engrossing and thought-provoking. Adriel Brandt has a monotonous style of reading, unfortunately. He relates the story clearly - good enunciation - but the performance has little else going for it. It's disappointing to hear this fascinating satire delivered with zero emotion. Despite a poor performance, this recording of a rightfully celebrated allegorical tale is worth 3.5 out of 5 stars.

social dilemma

Typical hypocrisy of time, circumstance and power politics. Don't forget about the past or of people's potental greed.

A terrifying warning

Fantastic story that, along with the Gulag Archipelago, should be mandatory reading in all schools

Not the best, but good read

The book feels like it's the summary for another book. the story is good, it could have had more drama and events to it. but it doesn't. it is laid out as one simple sentence after another: X did that. Y did this. Z said that. etc... so it doesn't conduct feelings to the reader (listener). this did not help the narrator at all. so he sounded most of the time like a text to speech programs, monotonic, doesn't grab your attention.
So may be it will be a lot better as an actual read, not as audio.

truly important

an amazingly comedic view of a true atrocity, allowing the full circle of tragedy plus time. without diluting the morbidity of which it discusses.
