Animal Farm

Well, we had a discussion on George Orwell's book, 1984, so I thought we could have one on Animal Farm.

I don't like Animal Farm as much as 1984, but it's still such an amazing novel. Always worth a read, even if you're not into political books.

If you haven't read it, but are interested, you can read it in its entirety here:

MMMM.... Snowball...

(Do not DARE take that out of context)

I haven't read this one for about 3 years. I love the book, but the representations tend to be too obvious for my tastes. Nevertheless, it is still QUITE funny and provocative.

A classic summation

My economics teacher always used to yell that to people who leaned back in their chairs, such that they were balancing on two of the legs.

Communism is a theme in Animal Farm right?

Indeed, Orwell knew that there was no such thing as good despotism.
