As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors....

Animal Farm Reviews
564. Animal Farm, George Orwell
Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union. Orwell, a democratic socialist, was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow-directed Stalinism, an attitude that was critically shaped by his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. The Soviet Union, he believe ...more
George OrwellI got stunned for a while when I finished Animal Farm-a masterpiece from George Orwell- for the novella depicts our society so perfectly- the role of power, how corrupts those who are apex of a social system and eventually they eliminate their competitors, and it happens with almost every social system, it's like a treatise on our society.
Napolean is not inherently evil, Napoleon's subsequent adoption of nearly all of Mr. Jones' principles and after that the animals treat fellow ani ...more
Not as formidable as 1984, this modern day fable, though, bears down hard on socialism and even more on the very aspects of our nature that brings power struggles about.
First published in 1945, this allegorical criticism of Stalinist communism is nonetheless still relevant today as a cautionary satire on totalitarianism in general.
رغم تاريخية هذا العمل وكثرت من تناوله بالنقد والقراءة – المراجعة – إلا أنه لايمكن لأى قارئ أن لا يُعبَّر ولو بالقليل من إعجابه تجاه هذا النص، وهذا الإسقاط العظيم من الرواية من أعلي مرتبة في الكائنات الحية إلى كائن أقل منه مكانة دون التقليل من قيمة الحيوان الذي هو أفضل من كثير من البشر نعرفهم أنا وأنت وأنتِ.
من خلال تتبع ركائز الأتصال في النص الأدبي؛ الرواية أجد أن المرسل ثم الرسالة ثم المرسل إليه قد أجتمعت في هذه الرواية صغيرة الحجم وأبدع بها جورج أورويل. لكن هل هذا ما خلد الرواية؟.. لا أعتقد ولا ...more
"I won't read again to this writer", that was my first impression to "ANIMAL FARM".
George Orwell was recommend to me by his two most famous books:"ANIMAL FARM" and "1984", and I had started reading "ANIMAL FARM" first by chance.
Then I though that Orwell, almost, hadn't have something to talk about in his other book; because he "has summarized up all what is happening in the occupied revolutions".
Later, I knew that "1984" was about Dystopian world that occurs after ANIMAL FARM's world. and Over ...more
I read this in high school and hated it because it terrified me.
It still terrifies me.
مزیت تمام انقلاب ها همینه که خوب و قوی و با شعار ها و شوق ها و سرودها و اشک شادی مردم شروع میشه و بدبختی اش هم اینکه به پوکرفیسی و
نارضایتی مردم از انقلابی که فراموش شده و اهدافی که تغییر پیدا کرده و به قول جورج اُرول در این کتاب "منسوخ شده" خط به خط این کتاب باعث پوزخند من بود و گاهی یاد تاریخ انقلاب های کشورهای مختلف میفتادم و یک جای هم حس کردم چقدر داستان این کتاب شبیه وضعیت کره ی شمالی هست و یک جاهایی هم حتی شبیه وضعیت کشور نازنین خودمون که هیچی اش شبیه اون شوق و شعار نفت ملی و تمام درآمدش ب ...more
I first read this in Grade 11 and decided it was my favourite book. I knew a reread needed to happen right away, but it took me four years to finally get around to it when my boyfriend gifted me this beautiful illustrated edition. Animal Farm is a book I often think about and often quote, and it was a bit nerve-wracking to go back to it to see if it actually lived up to everything I had built it up to be. Thankfully, I'm thrilled to say it did.
In many ways it's a little bit underwhelming the sec ...more
