Listening time Animal Farm by George Orwell is 3 hours, 11 minutes.
This year marked the 75th anniversary of the publication of Animal Farm by George Orwell. Since I'd never read this important work of fiction, I thought I'd better go ahead and make the time to read Animal Farm and I'm glad that I read (or rather listened) to this novel.
Animal Farm by George Orwell is a short, powerful read and well read by Ralph Cosham. I really enjoyed the preface to Animal Farm as it was a nice introduction to this important work.
I enjoyed the writing, storyline/plot developement and characters as well for Animal Farm by George Orwell. It's a chilling tale of how totalitarianism is a game changer in the worst sort of way! Betrayal in the worst kind of way ends this novella.
I've also learned that Animal Farm by George Orwell has been a banned book as well!Below is the plot summary for Animal Farm by George Orwell from Audible:
George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words. It is an account of the bold struggle that transforms Mr. Jones' Manor Farm into Animal Farm, a wholly democratic society built on the credo that All Animals Are Created Equal. Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that bears an insidious familiarity. The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is re-established with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others.
I am giving Animal Farm by George Orwell a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!
