About the book

image4.0/5.0

Librarian's note: There is an Alternate Cover Edition for this edition of this book here. A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned –a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible. When Animal Farm was first published, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell’s masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

En spøjs, satirisk og underholdende fortælling. Der er ingen tvivl om at Orwell havde et budskab om samfundsidealisme, gode og dårlige intentioner og ikke mindst styreformernes fordele og ulemper. Historien er godt fundet på og budskabet stråler tydeligt igennem. Meget letlæst novelle.

Read this if you're interested in why "Communism only works in theory"

Blev slemt skuffet over denne her efter at have læst 1984. Den gentager sig selv mange gange, og selvom den vil skabe en vigtig pointe, så kommer det til at virke forsimplet og uden den tyngde, det fortjener.

Hard concept to understand but highlights important themes of its time

Great satire that makes you laugh but on the second thought - it hurts how painfully accurate it is.
