    Celebrity Death Match tournament versus Macbeth.In a galaxy that s this one and today only most people don t realize it because it scrolls on the screen in teeny tiny neon green letters with a sterile surgical instrumental backdrop Or CNN Once upon a time that s today There was a MAN and a Big Brother and they were one and the same What about the sisters You could be big brother, you know People always ask who the MAN is supposed to be You re a man, aren t you Although it has been some time sinc [...]

    These are Orwell s most famous books Both are dystopian tales of the dangers of a totalitarian government.Similarities between the books The government knows best.The intelligentsia seize power.The naive proletariat are oppressed and kept ignorant.The government bends or breaks its own rules for its benefit.The government uses propaganda to keep the proletariat in check.The government rewrites history to prove that it s correct and that life is better with the government than it was before the g [...]

    I have finished only Animal Farm, and this book is most certainly a single chapter of good, gracious continental life It s wonderful I did read this paragon when I was 13, and now I have grown, but this book remained my personified retinue It s beautiful.Animal Farm is based on the tropics of hard working animals, governed by the tyranny stimulated by Napolean and Snowball I cannot give an explanation or a review for this book, because it is too graceful It makes you feel the need to eat meat, b [...]

    I read Animal Farm once a decade It is a quick read that constantly reminds me that I need to keep the blinders off and not take everything for granted I have a strange desire for bacon for some reason.

    1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell are dystopian novels that depict the horrors of a totalitarian state Animal Farm, unlike 1984, represented an Orwellian state in abstract terms than 1984 It showed all the animals on a farm under the rule of a single pig 1984 shows a man who was at odds with the utter conformity of the totalitarian society that he was part of.

  6. Markus Molina

    I love 1984, I love Animal Farm, and I love George Orwell There is so much wisdom and depth to these two stories and there is so much that has been written or said about them, it would be a struggle to review them without subconsciously regurgitating all the good things I ve heard I just feel like both of these stories, and especially 1984 should be read by everyone I believe it helps you appreciate what you got and to question everything you hear I believe they are some of the most thought prov [...]

    It is difficult to rate a novel which is incomplete This version if Animal Farm and 1984 does not contain the full versions of either book Animal Farm has only the first 10 chapters and ends abruptly on page 86 1984 has only the first 3 sections and repeats itself.This is a sampling of Orwells Classics rather than a complete read If you want to read the full novel Don t purchase this one

    There are no replacements for George Orwell, just as there are no replacements for a Bernard Shaw or a Mark Twain he pricked, provoked and badgered lazy minds, delighted those who enjoyed watching an original intelligence at work Time

    You Must Read Animal Farm That s the brief version of my review.Eric Arthur Blair, or George Orwell as the world knows him, is a genius at describing fear, terror, doubt, uncertainty, mischief, evil, and hopelessness The writing is beyond exquisite, even if the topic is morose Such a loss to the world that Mr Orwell died when he was just 46 years old The unwritten works that he never wrote, the works that would have enriched our world and weren t meant to be In Animal Farm, much like 1984, Orwel [...]

    All animals are equal but some animals are equal than others Joseph StalinIn Animal Farm George Orwell reenacted the Russian Revolution and its aftermath, Major, Napoleon, Snowball, Jones, and Frederick incarnating Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, Tsar Nicolas II and Hitler But through the fable, Orwell critiques not only communism but also any corruption of power, leaders highlighting real or imagined threats to instill fear in followers and solidify power Leon TrotskyAs often repeated throughout histo [...]

    Two of my favorite books Meant to re read 1984 with the student book club, but it got away from me 1984 was one of my favorite required high school reads my senior year, and I LOVE to teach Animal Farm

  12. Maria Lasprilla

    Aninal Farm was entertaining until I kept on finding the similarities with Venezuela It was like the history of the last 15 20 years of the country told in the form of a fable and written decades earlier 1984 this was worse than watching a horror movie which I hate because while in a movie I m always aware it s fiction, the book kept on confusing me making me feel I was actually going through a factual piece Only specific elements got me out of it The biggest impressions happened while reading T [...]

    Animal Farm is reviewed here review show1984 a terrifying look into the future that seems possible with each passing day The writing still stands up, and though 1984 is long in the past, and we still aren t quite living the the horrid oligarchy of Engsoc we have traveled too far down the path for comfort I m pinning my hopes on the proletariat, and hoping I m not wrong.

  14. Jongalt

    Its quite unique how he portrays his characters as animals And its often hilarious But once againhes a socialistis is what he wantswhy does he trash it here but fight for it in real life But I have to thank him just like I did for 1984 for making a great book explaining the pitfalls of socialism Overall Storyline is funny yet serious.You hate pigs after your done.You realize that George Orwell is a hypocrite.Read it and feel great we aren t to this pointt.

  15. Melody

    I have finally read 1984 It just took me a few years to pick it up My rating is leaning toward 3.5 than 3 I enjoyed the book I really don t know how to express my feelings about it yet But I did enjoyed it.

  16. Shaun

    This collection contains two of Orwell s greatest works that most certainly complement each other and are thus worth reading together Yet because I wrote a separate review for Animal Farm, I will stick to 1984 in this review.Not only can Orwell write with the best of them, but his philosophical and intellectual insights are notable A story about one man s ultimately futile resistance against a powerful and totalitarian regime, 1984 illustrates how absolute power corrupts absolutely I think what [...]

    Animal Farm tells the simple and tragic story of what happens when the oppressed farm animals rebel, drive out Mr Jones, the farmer, and attempt to rule the farm themselves, on an equal basis What the animals seem to have aimed at was a utopian sort of communism, where each would work according to his capacity, respecting the needs of others The venture failed, and Animal Farm ended up being a dictatorship of pigs, who were the brightest, and most idle of the animals Napoleon literally becomes t [...]

  18. Vishwesh Jirgale

    One of the best book I have read Animal FarmGreat dramatization of the very heavy idea that Absolute power is likely to Corrupt Absolutely I have read this book multiple times and would read it again because every time I read I gain new insights into human nature and the civilization government game.What s , the novel ends with a quote so true that it still gives me chills The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again but already it was impossible t [...]

  19. Joe Hill

    Communism doesn t work because the people in power want power for themselves Shallow characterization, I.e None of the characters are compelling It is a parable meant to teach you a life lesson about the dangers of socialism I m sure grade schoolers can read without rolling their eyes too much For me it was too heavy handed And I m pretty sure that pigs are not smarter than dogs by that much.

    This was a reread for me on both of these books I don t know why I pressed myself to finish this on Super Bowl Sunday, but it seemed appropriate this year I have read both several times and read 1984 at the start of high school, well before the date of Orwell s major classic It was interesting to look at these books again after many years and under current conditions I will focus on 1984 Animal Farm was always good as a satire of the Russian Revolution eating itself and the main effect remained [...]

  21. Pavel Kolev

    Well don t finish the book before going to bed that s for sure Overall I did not expect that kind of story Some of the events in the book will require thinking to figure out why exactly were they in the book And now i can see why the phrase 1984 supposed to be a warning not a guide is so famous.

  22. Jennifer

    So it only took me a few decades getting around to reading something by Eric Arthur Blair Oh wait, I meant to write George Orwell HA These two stories helped me to understand why an author might choose to go by another name, you know, in order to protect themselves from retribution for their writings I can see how these 2 stories may have pissed off some of the powers that be in the day Anyhow, I m very happy I have finally finished the book Animal Farm is undeniably one of the most thought prov [...]

    What was George Orwell saying to his readers of the eighty four pages of Animal Farm in 1945 The animals huddled about Clover, not speaking The knoll where they were lying gave them a wide prospect across the countryside Most of Animal Farm was within their view the long pasture stretching down to the main road, the hayfield, the spinney, the drinking pool, the ploughed fields where the young wheat was thick and green, and the red roofs of the farm buildings with the smoke curling from the chimn [...]

    I had read this years ago in school and I remember being incredibly unimpressed It is amazing what several dozen years can do to change your perspective The book is filled with powerful allegories and is surprisingly relevant today.

  25. Adam

    If anyone reads anything by Orwell, they read this.These two works are really the culmination of a short but prolific publishing career for Orwell, who produced a great volume of journalism over a decade and a half in the 1930s and 1940s In that time, he watched as Europe buckle between the twin forces of Nazi fascism and Soviet Communism Because the Nazis were the enemy of Britain and the USSR was the tenuous ally, however, criticism of Soviet tactics and practices was highly discouraged Thus, [...]
