    About the Book

    At first, George Orwell’s Animal Farm may seem like a fancy yet simple story where Old Major instigates two pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, to revolt against the farmer who owns them. But, the story isn’t as simple as it seems. In Animal Farm, Orwell has taken a few events from Russian history - the Russian Revolution and Stalin’s rise to power - and has tried to mock them. In fact, in one of his letters to the French translator Yvonne Davet, Orwell referred to Animal Farm as a tale written to ridicule Stalin. A democratic socialist, Orwell was always a critic of Stalin and he strongly opposed the idea of dictatorship, and that’s what this book is all about.

    About the Author

    An outspoken supporter of democratic socialism and an ardent opposer of totalitarianism - these are the traits that describe English novelist Eric Arthur Blair, famously known as George Orwell, the best. In fact, Orwell’s awareness of social injustice and his lucid prose made his literary works something that every reader should consider reading at some point in his/her lifetime. Although Orwell died at a relatively young age of 46, his works - Animal Farm, 1984, Homage to Catalonia, and Down and Out in Paris and London - still continue to make readers wish that there was more to read from him.

    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!

    Super!

    Nice print. Nice cover. Best quality book. Now coming to the book it is a satire on the Russian Revolution of 1917 and its purely George Orwell's opinion. You need to have a basic idea of the Russian rev. before you start reading the book. P.S. Its a novella. Its a good read please read it.

    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.

    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...

    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...
