    Description

    Animal Farm is an allegorical political satire that brings alive the animalism of human class conflicts and power struggles, through a simple yet profound story about a successful animal revolution on a quiet English Manor Farm.

    Summary Of The Book

    There is no turning back once the war trumpet has been the sounded. The animals at Manor Farm have declared war on their drunken and irresponsible owner Mr. Jones, and have secured the farm for themselves after successfully driving out all the humans.

    It all began when Old Major, the old prize boar on Manor Farm, had a dream in which animals live in a utopian world without the tyranny of man. Inspired by Old Major’s rhetoric and an old song “Beasts of England”, taught to them by Old Major, the animals revolt against the tyranny of their human masters.

    Once the animals take over the farm, they expect things to get better for their kind, and emphatically declare all animals to be equal. Does the utopian dream of Old Major live up to the animals’ expectations or are they in for a dystopian awakening as things take on an altogether different turn? Do Snowball and Napoleon manage to bring order to the chaotic situation following the revolution? Now that the humans have been banished from Manor Farm, what new evil lurks round the corner, waiting to possess the innocent farm animals?

    Animal Farm is a straightforward tale of a remarkable revolution in the animal world. However, on a deeper level it is a political satire of the cruel man-made ideologies of class divisions and the subsequent class struggles involved. A radio version of the novella was broadcast on BBC Radio in January 1947. Animal Farm has also been adapted to film twice, as an animated feature in 1954 and later as a TV live action version in 1999. A theatrical version of Animal Farm was staged in London in 1984, followed by a tour of nine cities in 1985. Guy Masterson’s solo version that premiered at the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh in 1995 has been touring the world since.

    About George Orwell

    George Orwell was the pseudonym used by Eric Arthur Blair. He was an English journalist and novelist, well known for his satirical works on social injustice and totalitarianism. His other well known books include Nineteen Eighty-Four, Homage to Catalonia, The Road to Wigan Pier and Down and Out in Paris and London. Orwell was a strong believer in the democratic state and his major works are all satires on authoritarian rules and the class divide that still plagues the post modern society.

    He was born in Motihari, Bihar, in India. He was brought up in Henley-on-Thames, England, where he went to a convent school. He was a King’s Scholar at Eton from May 1917 to December 1921, when he left and subsequently joined the Indian Imperial Police in Burma. Orwell returned to London in 1927 before moving to Paris a year later. Orwell married Eileen O'Shaughnessy and was survived by a son, Richard Orwell, from that marriage. After Eileen’s demise, Orwell married Sonia Brownell shortly before his death. George Orwell was diagnosed with tuberculosis in 1947 and succumbed to the disease in 1950.

    Don't judge a book by its cover

    Animal Farm has always been a name I was accustomed to since my childhood. I had the perception of it being a story of a bunch of animals from their perspective.
    When I did read it, it was so much more. Not just a satire on our society's hypocritical power system, but very intricately, it describes the complete procedure that leads to a power hierarchy in the cover of witty humor.
    So much is said in such a short book, everyone is bound to have the dilemma of wanting to gulp it down in an inst...

    Good copy

    This is a review of the physical quality of the book rather than the reading matter presented in the book itself. A review of this book can be found anywhere online. But if you are planning to order this copy, and if you're a bibliophile like me, then you'd want to know about the physical quality of the book you are going to get your hands on.

    I bought the Animal Farm by the publisher Penguin. The one with the red cover and the pink silhouette of a pig with the line 'All animals are equal, ...

    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" , he left no ray of hope, no shimmer of light. Read it to know how dangerous is " the squealer" . In the present world where the propagandizing is far easier than debate, the book leaves a haunting i...

    A Brutal Satire On The Ruling Elite

    Although I wouldn’t give away the plot, the story metamorphically portrays how the so called leaders of revolution corner for themselves and their progeny all the benefits while the rest are subject to all kinds of hardship.

    The tale of animals severely lampoons the attempts of the political masters in altering even the basic tenets of the revolution to suit their individual needs and the grand lies they devise to cover up their shortcomings – and ultimately the political masters regardless...

    MUST READ !!

    This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand the political system of his'/her's respective country especially democracy. Through the use of animals the author George Orwell, efficiently displays the corrupting influence of power. This book I believe helps the reader to gain a bird's eye view of the scenario of politics that prevails in his'/her's political system.
    It is a very interesting and amazing read for the readers. So go for it.

    STUPENDOUS BOOK

    A must read for every book lover . If you are interested in politics this book is your Bible . This allegorical and dystopian novel by Orwell reflects the events leading up to the Russian Revolution and is also a terrible satire on Stalinism . A brilliant satirical work blending satire and wit. Its both surprising and convincing how Stalin has been reduced to a pig (Napoleon) and his enemy Trotsky to yet another pig (Snowball).
    Time magazine chose the book as one of the 100 best English-lang...

    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.

    Just okay

    Orwell's Animal farm is a satire about the corruption that is being done by the humans when they have power. Napoleon ( portrayed as a pig) is the leader of the Animal Farm. He is very corrupt and how he cheats his fellow livestock forms the plot of the story.

    Actually Stalin, the leader of the Soviet union has been portrayed as Napoleon and this book has been banned in many parts of the world .

    A:No. There is no explanation in the last pages as the book is a satire. One has to observe the inner meaning by himself/herself. A short introduction (half summary) is given in the back of the book.
