George Orwell’s famous satire of the Soviet Union, in which “all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”
I loved this book. This should be assigned reading at most schools. It teaches a lot but it is also a classic that more people should read.
Nicaragua And Animal Farm
Amazing to see this allegory written over 50 years ago happen in my own country, Nicaragua, in the last decade. The current dictator Daniel Ortega, with the Sandinistas, the Nicaraguan people, and the United States, overthrew the dictator Somoza in 1981. It is 2020, and not only is he far worse a human being than Somoza ever was, but the majority of Nicaraguans have forgotten what the Somoza era was anyways because of the lack of education provided by the same government that overthrew him.
“Ortega y Somoza, son la misma cosa!” Which translates to, “Ortega and Somoza are the same thing” has been one of the most prominent chants on protests, but this should’ve been chanted years and years ago.
Now Daniel Ortega lives a lonely life, with blood on his hands but unfortunately enjoying himself just like Napoleon on Animal Farm, and making a whole country suffer just like the animals. Now he just has to wait until he is overthrown, and we Nicaraguans have to make sure history never repeats itself again.
Every Nicaraguan should have a copy of this book.
This is a great book for those just reading for leisure or looking to get into reading but don’t know where to start, paired with 1984, it’s a great buy.
The boringest thing ever!
I had to read this for school, my teacher said it’s such a great book, that’s how it stayed the most popular book of all time.
First of all; it’s not the most popular book of all time. Not even close. I’ve never heard of it until I had to read it for school. Probably not even on the list of most popular books.
Second; MOST BORING THING EVER
why would anyone write something like this, and why would anyone wanna read it!? It’s literally animals fighting over politics! So boring!!!!
Why do hate humans!? It never even explained. And beasts of England, that’s not a song. Or at least not a good one. Whoever likes this is either a teacher, or a nerd who has no idea what fun is. Such a pointless boring book.
Fun and interesting read
By RB Student
I love the style of this book, if you like history you would like this book. The similarities between acts that take place on the farm and the russian revolution really create a good satire and dystopia. After reading this book I would like to check out Orwell’s other books.
A must read along with 1984. Both of these political novels are examples for all time.
Orwell’s a Snitch
By Erwin Heidelheim
A pretentious and overrated book that strawmans socialism and communism to say “ruling class=bad”
