Animal Farm

Animal Farm (Paperback)

By Orwell, George

Enter Manor Farm, owned by Mr Jones, a lazy farmer who ignores the plight of the animals who toil under his yoke. However, things change dramatically after Major, the prizewinning boar, has a dream, in which all the animals are free. His rousing speeches incite the animals to rev...olt against oppression. Egged on by the promise of freedom, the animals unite and drive the Joneses out of the farm. Under the tutelage of the pigs, all the farm animals build a world where they are free and equal. Until some become more equal than others. Does the dream of freedom become a nightmare of slavery? George Orwell's classic, first published in 1945, continues to mirror what unfolds in the theatres of power in society. His criticism of the communist ideal of an equal world takes you through the shining triumphs and terrible failures of the world we live in. PLUS!
