Animal Farm (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 766

Both controversial and belief shattering, Animal Farm by George Orwell is one of the most acclaimed books of the World War period with its shocking satire of the Soviet Union.

Summary Of The Book

Animal Farm is one of the most controversial yet acclaimed books and is a devastating critique of the Soviet Union regime. The book details ignorance, wickedness, greed, indifference and myopia as factors contributing to corrupt and despotic leadership. Animal Farm is a biting satire of the Soviet Union using the disguise of a beast fable. All farm animals are called together by the boar Old Major where he denounces parasitic humans and teaches them a song of rebellion. Thereafter, the pigs Napoleon and Snowball take command after his death and start preparations for their rebellion. Mr. Jones is driven away and there are seven Animalism commandments that all farm inmates have to follow. Napoleon and Snowball teach these principles, writing and reading while the farm becomes a self-sustaining one. Slowly, these pigs start keeping special eatables for themselves and become embroiled in a power struggle.

Animal Farm is a satirical depiction of the rebellion of farm animals against their own human masters. However, their slogan of equality changes towards the end. A committee of pigs start ruling the farm and Napoleon eventually establishes his own tyranny over all other animals. The pigs establish their slogan where some animals are more equal than others. There is also the battle against neighboring farmer Mr. Frederick which threatens to destabilise their independence. At the end, the other animals cannot distinguish between the ruler pigs and humans. Animal Farm is the historical account of a revolution gone wrong and of the excuses that were presented at every juncture. It is a bitter attack on the Stalinist regime which allied with Britain at the time. The book was refused by a variety of publishers owing to its controversial content; it was first published in Britain in 1945. Animal Farm has sold millions of copies across the world since then.

About George Orwell

George Orwell was a famous British journalist, and novelist. His real name was Eric Arthur Blair. George Orwell also wrote A Clergyman’s Daughter, Burmese Days, Coming Up For Air, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Homage to Catalonia, Down and Out in Paris and London and The Road to Wigan Pier.

George Orwell is known for astounding clarity and biting satire in his works. He had a deep awareness of social injustice and democratic socialism. He also stood steadfast against totalitarianism of any kind. His work still influences contemporary political culture and has given rise to the term Orwellian. George Orwell was born in Motihari, Bihar on 25 June 1903. He also taught at The Hawthorns High School and Frays College in Uxbridge. Orwell also attended Eton College and wrote a literary critique of Arms and the Man by George Bernard Shaw. He is also known for his Defense of P.G. Wodehouse, the 1945 essay which directly accused The Ministry of Information.

Not Against socialism but against people who betrayed socialism

Unlike what many people think, this book is not a parody on socialism or intends to criticise the system. On the contrary it shows how propaganda and manipulation can kill the gains of any egalitarian society .
Orwell hits his dystopia with elan. The scary fact is that at the end of "Animal Farm…

One of the greatest books of all time. The world will not be the same after you've finished the book. Changes your outlook. Melancholy is the by product, though. But that's what makes it a different book.

A philosophical stroll which will shake your preconceived concepts

A philosophical stroll which will shake your preconceived concepts down to the core. Can't believe he explained such political/societal concepts in such a casual way. And the best part is that it's a tiny book which you can finish in 2-3 hours.

True Agony of a Socialist

Orwell is obviously angry at the way Socialism has been distorted by Stalin. Using Animal characters as symbols Orwell honestly mocks and criticizes the Russian leadership under Lenin. It is a very easy to read book giving good perspectives on the Socialist Revolution.

Old yet contemporary!

The story of Animal Farm was written by George Orwell sometime ago, 1945 to be exact, whereas this story still finds its match in contemporary settings. That's the brilliance of George!!

How his pack of animals can be equated with real life scenarios and yet they are so convincing.

Fully empathise with the Character of Boxer Horse, "I will work harder" and "Napoleon is always right" despite the corruption.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this marvellous piece of literature. A must read!

A political Satire

Animal Farm is a satirical allegory on the Russian Revolution. Orwell explains it, “It is the history of revolution that went wrong.” It tells the simple and tragic story of what happens when the oppressed farm rebel to attain freedom from Mr. Jones. It is about their attempt to rule the farm themselves on the basis of equality.

The animals had initially aimed to form a utopian society, where each would work according to his capacity, respecting the needs of the others. But, they failed to do so. And, “Animal Farm” ended up being a dictatorship of the pigs that were the brightest, but did no

Animal Farm

Price, as always, is a winner. Binding, paper quality are great although the book has some typographical errors.
The story is great for all those who know and understand the context of the book. For those who don't, the additional notes and comments can be a great help. THe experienced readers may find them unnecessary. However, that remains a part of the package.
Im giving 4 only because of typos.

A very relevant read for all times!

George Orwell is probably one of the few authors who has more than one book featuring regularly in the all the favorites of most people.

In such a short book, we get to experience the entire range of the human emotions - probably characterized by the animals. But, what this book basically makes us realize is the fact that politics is relevant at all times.

Awesome work

This book captures in a few pages which many books can't capture in 10 times as many.

George Orwell succeeds in telling the tale of communist Russia through the metaphor of a revolution where a farm owner is out-thrown his animal subjects. But a new ruling class (the pigs) emerge which ensure that the life of the rest of animals is as miserable, if not more, as before the revolution.

The Great Critic

Animal Farm to this day remains a warning against totalitarianism. It is a scathing parable on soviet socialism, a story which reveals us that blindly giving power to a party,individual or any demigod will be doomed. But we still need a social change and what this book warns against is blind trust. As an anarchist himself his book still tells us that men cannot continue to live under slavery. Men are born free and should remain free.

SPELLING ERRORS

Though the paper quality is good for such a low price, and a decent binding the book has many silly spelling mistakes. The introduction is good and includes some details about Orwell's other books.
