Animal Farm (PMC) (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.418

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.

A must read !

This review is for the red colored book with a pig peeking out. Publisher Penguin.

Book: Physically, the books cover was rather disappointing, i.e. to say, the material of the cover feels like a basic drawing board on which the cover art is printed. The cover is rather thinner than expected. Its a short story, so the book is very light. The paper quality could have been better.

Story: The story is marvelous ! I loved it ! The sly way in which Mr. Orwell has compared humans with pigs is a point to note. This book could give your point of view a new dimension! Its a must read in my opinion.

Available for lower price at flipkart

This is a very nice book. It makes fun of the Russian communist revolution. The 2 pig leaders are correspondinbg to lenin & stalin. Another edition of the same book is available for a much lower price at flipkart itself.
