What the community says about Animal Farm

    Written on May 1, 2018
    "I think everyone should read this book. No, seriously. It's a great allegory of the socialist movement and with these ideas coming back into our lives today, I think everyone should be aware of the consequences. Orwell does an amazing job at leaving you feeling upset and angry at how stupid some of the animals can be, but then we turn around and have to see that is what many today are like. He also hits the media and its ever-changing truth spot on. I suggest this book to everyone I know, and I even bought this as a gift for my Mom. It's a quick read, but will be something you come back to often."

    "Animal Farm is an amazing classic novel that deals with a communist society and the social injustices it can create. It is a wonderful book, and tackles the subject well if you are able to look past the animals, and relate it to actual people."

    "This is a great book, but there is nothing satirical about it."
  • Richard Sanchez
    Written on May 11, 2018
    "Animal Farm is a classic book in many ways. It is great writing, it is symbolic, and it is historical as well as entertaining. It fits many people's needs and can be read by teenagers to older adults. It is a work of historical symbolic fiction and should be read as many as possible."

    "I love books with deeper meanings. I think it is important to have something to look into the book with. Animal Farm was that book. Many meanings could be undearthed in this novel, but I thought the hidden message was the main reason I kept reading."

    "George Orwell delivers a thought provoking classic thrilling novel. This book is chilling and relates to many of the issues and struggles we see in the world today. "
  • Richard Simpson

    "It may not come to mind immediately since it's a book on social and political commentary but it is written in a very witty and satirical manner. You can't go wrong with this Orwell classic probably second only to 1984 as far as popularity."
  • Grace Morrison

    "This is a great book if you like reading about political themes like me. I'm definitely planning to read this one again. It has given me a lot to think about."

    "You can't go wrong with the classics. A great short novel for adults is Animal Farm by George Orwell. This also happens to be one of my favorite books of all time!"
  • Harini Jaiteley
    Written on April 11, 2018
    "Animal farm by George Orwell is a classic that has deep underlying themes that are forever timeless and relevant. The poor and mistreated rise up to fight against their oppressor, but it's not a fairytale but a realistic depiction of society's struggles. A required reading in many high school courses and a favorite of many."
  • Danielle Wood

    "Animal Farm is a classic novel. I've read it at least three times. The overthrow done by the animals is just written really well. "

    "My child is a super advanced reader, but it's hard to find books that are age-appropriate AND on an advanced level. So I did a search for Mensa-recommended books for ages 9 to 12. This was one of the results and I remember loving it as a teenager. She read it all in one day and now lists it as one of her favorites."
  • Rosa María Morán
    Written on April 30, 2018
    "Animal Farm is a shocking but effective tale of politics and morality. The book manages to pack a lot about human nature and history into a slim and meaningful volume. It is not only an exploration of our past, but also a warning about our future; highly recommended to anyone cynical of revolution."
  • Christina Rodriguez
    Written on May 14, 2018
    "Animal Farm reinforces the idea that it is not power that corrupts but the love of power. Orwell uses the analogy of an animal farm to reveal a story of today, but instead of the old Soviet Block of the 1940s it is perhaps Bilderberg or the infamous Global Elite that are the forces behind the corruption. "
  • Joyce Barnes
    Written on May 19, 2018
    "I read this novel after graduating high school. It taught me a good deal about people before I actually experienced life in society at large. The idealism and savagery of living things, organized movements, and governments is quite true to actual life."

  • Parakram Verma
    Written on April 16, 2018
    "I've always been a fan of Orwell, and I particularly enjoyed reading Animal Farm, so I was a little disappointed to see all the reviews online who completely missed the point of the book and the ideology of its author. According to one reviewer, "he (Orwell) would probably die of depression if he saw how the highly-credentialed but uneducated elites and cosseted youth purport to pine for socialism." Orwell's own words directly contradict this, however; as he put it "Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic socialism...""

    "Searching for best must-read novels from the Modern Library list with a solution presented of the Animal Farm would be a great result. The overall reviews are 4.5 stars out of 5 with 3,902 customer reviews. The book was written in 2004 so I feel modern would apply to this text. In addition, the price point and the availability of the type of product available is a huge benefit that I would be interested in."

    "A classic that everyone should read once in their life. I'm not sure what else to say, based on that! This isn't a feel-good book, just be aware of that in case you don't know. It tells a pretty dark web of the darkness of mankind, and of communism. Orwell was a literary genius, and this book is well-known for good reason."
  • Echo Xia
    Written on April 23, 2018
    "An extraordinary book, I have been reading it since I was a teenager, every time I read it I find another nuance, another sinister tableau carefully embroidered into a "fairy story", but isn't the whole issue a fairy story? A huge, monstrous deception that highlights our immense collective naivety and need to fervently believe in something pure and altruistic? After all that is how the myriads sects and confessions thrive."

    "I picked this book up from a recommendation from a high school teacher as I was heading into college and I was really happy that I got such good advice. This book tells a fairly typical story with good morals about treating people or animals how you would want to be treated but it does it in a very unique and fun way. Perfect book for anyone heading into college."

    "I hadn't read George Orwell's Animal Farm since high school and wasn't quite sure what to expect when I decided to read it again.

I would recommend to you to give this book a second read as it can only improve your appreciation for this classic literary work."

    "This story is a classic by Orwell. Everyone should read this at least once. The kindle version has lots of typos though."
  • Virginia Castellanos
    Written on April 21, 2018
    "This book is all that the category suggests. The book is about a farm where the animals are slaved and mistreated to such an extent that they have an upheaval and take over the farm. The personification of the animals is what lends to the creepy sort of reality in this novel. Once you pick this up you will not be able to put it back down. Instead of looking at it as just a book try to identify real life, especially during that time period, to this book."

    "You can never ever go wrong with George Orwell, the masterpiece machine in my opinion, I am a huge fan of his work. This book defines all the similarities of other creations of the author but in a very positive way. George Orwell is one of those authors that does not need to change just to please all, but he sticks to his formula to be considered one of the greatest."

    "I bought this book because it is a classic. This book is definitely a book with a mission to point out the dangers society, if not humanity as a whole can face when certain ideologies take hold. Regardless of political views, this is a must read for all who value the quality of their environments, their governments, and those who ultimately can either make or break the health of a society. This is a deep read, explored in a not so threatening way. I give Orwell's Animal Farm a strong recommendation."
