George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel—a scathing satire on a downtrodden society’s blind march towards totalitarianism.

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned—a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible.   When Animal Farm was first published, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell’s masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

Excelente analogía del comunismo.

5 stars

Una de las mejores analogías que he leído y en este caso, Orwell expone la cruda realidad del comunismo representada en los animales de la granja, donde los cerdos son los líderes del nuevo gobierno (nada mejor representado con los cerdos) y sus víctimas, los animales según el carácter de cada uno de ellos. Un libro recomendado.
