Animal Farm

A Fairy Story

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 Wellington leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organized 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.

A must read
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 20.05.2017

Already a classic by the end of the 20th century and a must read for everyone. No other book illustrates and questions the history of communism in the former Soviet Union more gripping. Motives, organisation and gradual descent into perversion and farce, find it all on "Animal Farm"!

Tolles Buch

Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Man sieht deutlich die Ähnlichkeiten zwischen der in diesem Buch satirisch geschilderten Geschichte und den Anfängen der UdSSR. Dieses Buch kann ich weiterempfehlen. Es war extrem lesenswert.
