Publisher's Summary

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

Animal Farm - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges....

Tamsin Greig, Nicky Henson, and Toby Jones star in this new drama, part of BBC Radio 4's The Real George Orwell season - a Radio 4 journey that explores the disjuncture between the man who was Eric Blair and the writer who was George Orwell.

A must-to-read novel

Another amazing book by Orwell.
Narration was very good. It is dramatized which makes it like a radio program.

Great story, lacklustre performance

This version is way too intense for me, and the sound quality is meh. I found it hard to listen to, and so I ultimately ended up listening to another version I found elsewhere.

It's a great book, but I wouldn't recommend this version.

Packs A Lot In A Concise Package

Illustrates the dangers of not being allowed to think and speak freely. The "slippery slope" is real...and things can slide quickly.

Dramatization was excellent.

Another Look at the Russian Revolution

The animals revolt against the humans led by the pigs is successful. There is happiness, there is joy, a new day is upon us. Then the slow slide of the new leaders into the same positions once occupied by those who came before them.
Animal Farm was George Orwell's take on the Bolshevik revolution; the socialists overthrow of the Tsar and his government. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and the leaders of the Russian people have traditionally been authoritarian. Animal Farm tells the story of the slow slide of the revolutionary who frees the people into the reactionary who enslaves them even deeper than did his predecessors. An excellent classic that holds up quite well.

Wonderfully done

This was a great production of a true timeless classic. The voice actors were all amazing, music was fitting, and the pace was spot on. I highly recommend this to everyone

Wonderful

This was a beautifully performed version of Orwell's claasic novel. This would be a very easy way to introduce this worl to children who might not be great readers. Or, indeed, to adults. A very approachable adaptation and highly recommended.

Not allowed to give a classic less than 3 stars

Somehow I had managed to spend my entire life without reading this classic. It's short and to the point. I'm not sure how this dramatized version differs from the original but I suspect the story lines and dialogue are similar. I'm glad this was short because I don't think I could have listened for several more hours. I did, however, like the dramatized version, replete with sound effects and murmuring. Made it a little better. I've listened and I can cross another classic off my list. Don't think I'll tackle 1984.
