Renowned urban artist Shepard Fairey's new look for Orwell's timeless satire 'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.' Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges...Animal Farm - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power.show more
Power corrupts but absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you know a little about russian history. Then you'll quickly realize who Napolean and Snowdrop are. And who the other animal groups represent. Orwell's fairytale allegory on totalitarianism is a simple yet profound work. A must read for adults and children alike.
I actually thought this book was very well written and thought out. I even enjoyed it although I wasn't sure at first. I cannot recommend it to anyone though, unless you really know what you're getting yourself into.
