“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
Well, that certainly was something.
I have been wanting to read this book for years now. Ever since I read 1984, by George Orwell, and loved it, I wanted to get to this one.
Where 1984 seems like a dark vision of the future that is slowly becoming reality, Animal Farm is an eye opener to the terrible and deceptive ways of the world and our perception of freedom.
This story is scary. Just as scary as 1984, I think.
There is no moral, there is no lesson learned. In the end, the wicked triumph over all and the good have no way of stopping them.
Now, while I liked the story, 1984 is by far my favorite of the two. While this was a good tale, as well as an important one, it read like twisted fairytale of some sort, and not so much as a novel.
Other than that, I totally recommend, especially for those of you who loved 1984.
