George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution has become an intimate part of our contemporary culture, with its treatment of democratic, fascist, and socialist ideals through an animal fable. The animals of Mr. Jones' Manor Farm are overworked, mistreated, and desperately seeking a reprieve. In their quest to create an idyllic society where justice and equality reign, the animals of Manor Farm revolt against their human rulers, establishing the democratic Animal Farm under the credo, "All Animals Are Created Equal." Out of their cleverness, the pigs--Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball--emerge as leaders of the new community. In a development of insidious familiarity, the pigs begin to assume ever greater amounts of power, while other animals, especially the faithful horse Boxer, assume more of the work. The climax of the story is the brutal betrayal of Boxer, when totalitarian rule is reestablished with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: "But Some Animals Are More Equal than Others." This astonishing allegory, one of the most scathing satires in literary history, remains as fresh and relevant as the day it was published.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express

Ina Fabian a dat nota:

This book is a metaphoric and hilarious perspective of communism developed in a farm, where each animal represents the government and its leaders, but also people of a community. The story illustrates so well the principles of communism, how it was applied in the animal community and their reaction and mentality about it. There were two sides: those who were afraid to speak up and those who were not smart enough to know the difference between right or wrong. Moreover, I couldn’t resist compare it to real life, how a lider can influence a community and that actions can be told in a way to hide the truth. It was a pleasure reading this book, even though I postponed reading it for years. It’s a quick, fast-paced book, I highly recommend it!

'Animal Farm is a timeless satire on the central tragi-comedy of all politics—that is, the tragi-comedy of corruption by power' Timothy Garton Ash
It is the book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years
Remains our great satire of the darker face of modern history
Animal Farm has seen off all the opposition. It's as valid today as it was fifty years ago

Textul de pe ultima copertă

A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they embark on the creation of a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned -- a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible. When Animal Farm was first published fifty years ago, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner; the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.
