Einstein once said, "If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself."
If anyone says Politics is complicated, just give them this book.
This novel is put cross through the eyes of Farm Animals who want freedom from Oppressing Humans.
Such is the simplicity that anyone who is a casual reader will understand much about Politics from this novel.
George Orwell has masterfully demonstrated the harsh realities of the fake world we live in where we all think that we are free but yet we are slaves.
"All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others."
Animal Farm is about our society. It's about the power, people holding it and how they become corrupt.
It's an amazing novel which explains how power turned the pigs from 'comrades' to leaders aka dictators with whips and threats in less than 100 pages.
Amazing read and highly recommended.
"Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself.”
The author depicts the processes, which the pigs use to gain power step by step with the use of deception and manipulation of the animals. The rebellion which started for a good cause ends up being corrupted. All the characters are based on the Russian revolution and this book is an exact reflection of the political system that is running throughout the world.
Modern day Politics is nothing but a game of manipulation. It's all about obtaining power. We people are easily deceived by the manipulative talks of the politicians. As Adolf Hitler said "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it."
Their promises have been repeated so often that a majority of us actually believe these things will happen but nothing happens... ever..
They have no concern for public interest. All they want is power and to obtain that power they can do anything even killing someone and walking on their corpses and this book shows it.
This short novel has a lot to say.
U must have little knowledge about communism Russian revolution ..post and pre revolution russia..read about Joseph stalin his political life..his brutal implementation of policies ...removal and exection of tratsky, bukharin and other communist leaders....he used to people in four categories 1 supporter 2 co leader who cn be competetior 3 leaders who critisize him 4 neutral ..only 1 and 4were survived in strict surveillance..mass execution , disappearance was common in stalin era..sometimes name plate of officers changes twice a day....lenin said in his will about stalin "his skills r doubtless but this cook will serve such overspicy dishes that any man can't eat ."
Nowadays Communism z considered a failed ideology ..." lower class of animals with limited ration and long work hours without complaint " .russia china and all d communist nations discarded principal of communism but this story z upto some extent apply on every communist nation..mao jedong cn be fit here too in place of stalin ...
Even today in third world countries mr john cn be assumed as past colonian ruler and pigs cn be their political leader ...Benjamin d donkey forces you to think that things never change only characters r change and things like revolution make them worse ..
Being a classic, I thought the language might be a difficulty for me but it was not as I assumed. The language is simple, entertaining and upto the mark, and so is the narration. George Orwell has beautifully penned down each and every detail of the rebellion and you can relate to the fact that it is totally a satire on humans. The thrust for power and misusing it, mistreating the ones who are powerless is a reflection of modern day politics. This book had a great impact on me. I will keep my views short and end it up by saying “Pick it up the next chance you get”.
. Good typesetting
. Fluid, easy language, so also suitable for beginners in English literature
. Much like 1984 and points out the hipocricies in Communism throught great allegories and plot which only Orwell can create
. If read before or after 1984, it becomes better.
. The book is small sized and spans only 143 pages. Ideal to read in a long flight/long train jouney uninterrupted and alone.
I cannot even begin to measure the book's greatness in an Amazon review.
Great book, great product.
If you are seeing this, go for it.
