ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS...you need to read this book even for this sentence.

"Animal farm" rappresenta, in sintesi e in chiave satirica e allegorica, il completo fallimento di qualsiasi ricerca della perfetta forma di governo. In particolare Orwell si scaglia contro la Rivoluzione russa e il totalitarismo di Stalin, ma più in generale si trovano elementi comuni in molti altri Stati. Ogni animale allude a un personaggio realmente esistito (Palladineve è Trotskij, Jones è... read more

Description: It is an analogy of the Russian Revolution. The story is told through the eyes of animals that overthrow their drunken farmer. The animals then make rules for the farm and all starts off well. The pigs quickly rise to power. The two main pigs, Napoleon and Snowball, vie for control. Then Napoleon raises two litters of puppies and turns them into his private fighting force which he uses to chase Snowball off the farm. After that things go down hill rapidly.

"Klassikkotavaraahan tämä on. Lukeminen on edelleen väistynyt elokuvien tieltä, mutta koin velvollisuudeksi lukea tämän ennen elokuvaversiota, sillä vuoden -54 animaatio ei käsittääkseni ole likimainkaan niin hyvä mitä alkuperäisteos. Tätä helpotti myös se, että Orwellin klassinen satiiri on vain vähän yli sadan sivun mittainen. Kepeään ja (alussa) kevytmieliseen eläinsatuun puettua tarinaa on myös kieltämättä helppo lukea, sillä se tekee kaiken ajatustyön puolestaan. "

"The final book I read in middle school ended up being my all-time favorite book for a while, and I credit for maturing my reading tastes. I had great fun with the class I was reading with. One showed us a movie trailer done in Minecraft starring 50 Cent and Justin Bieber. It's as ridiculous as it sounds."
