As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors....

Animal Farm Reviews
I absolutely loved this book. It wasn't boring to me at all. I think Orwell did a great job of symbolizing all the injustice that happens in name of an outside force and how simple minded people who do not educate themselves get taken advantage from, be it West for Soviet Russia, America for Iran or Terrorists for the United states.
"I won't read again to this writer", that was my first impression to "ANIMAL FARM".
George Orwell was recommend to me by his two most famous books:"ANIMAL FARM" and "1984", and I had started reading "ANIMAL FARM" first by chance.
Then I though that Orwell, almost, hadn't have something to talk about in his other book; because he "has summarized up all what is happening in the occupied revolutions".
Later, I knew that "1984" was about Dystopian world that occurs after ANIMAL FARM's world. and Over ...more
"All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others."
What a great book. I can't believe I haven't read it before.
Written at a time when the evils of communism hadn't been fully exposed and some still thought it could work in practice, Animal Farm was sure to be an eye opener.
The setting is a "normal" farm--controlled and managed by humans. But one day the animals have had enough of being oppressed and abused as human slaves. They rise up and take over the farm. Their goal is fo ...more
George Orwell's Animal Farm is undeniably one of the best short novels ever written in the English language. It is a deceptively simple tale, which even older children could read. About an animal uprising, it is written in the style of a fable, and yet it can be read on so many levels. It is clearly both a satire and an allegory, a dystopian tale, and its author George Orwell made no secret of what regime, and which politicians, he was so mercilessly parodying. Yet as with all great novels, it s ...more
سيظل دائما جميع الحيوانات سواسية..الا ان بعض "الخنازير" ستري دائما انها "متساوية" اكثر من الاخرين
جورج اورويل عام 1943 يقدم لنا نموذج لثورة
ثورة حيوانات علي "صاحب العزبة"..عشان حقوقهم
ثورة زي اي ثورة في تاريخ الانسانية..ثورة زي الثورة الروسية ولا الرومانية ولا ....أهي ثورة
حكاية مكررة، تقريبا بنفس النهاية..فإننا لم نتعلم من التاريخ، فهل سنتعلم من الرمز؟
الحكاية هنا حكاية ثورة

ثورة ما من اجل الكرامة..ثورة من اجل العدالة الاجتماعية
ثورة نجحت في ازالة ...more
George OrwellI got stunned for a while when I finished Animal Farm-a masterpiece from George Orwell- for the novella depicts our society so perfectly- the role of power, how corrupts those who are apex of a social system and eventually they eliminate their competitors, and it happens with almost every social system, it's like a treatise on our society.
Napolean is not inherently evil, Napoleon's subsequent adoption of nearly all of Mr. Jones' principles and after that the animals treat fellow ani ...more
564. Animal Farm, George Orwell
Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union. Orwell, a democratic socialist, was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow-directed Stalinism, an attitude that was critically shaped by his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. The Soviet Union, he believe ...more
يمكن لنا أن نقول أن روايتي مزرعة الحيوان وأولاد حارتنا
هما أعظم روايتان رمزيتان مباشرتان كتبتا في القرن الفائت
فكلاهما لا يخفي من نفس المؤلف شيئا
وكلاهما يعبر عن مرارة تعتلج بنفس كاتبها
وكلاهما بليغ وفصيح وممتع
وأظن سر نجاح مزرعة الحيوان المدوي هو تعديها حدود الزمان والمكان
وأنها ومهما تعددت الأنظمة وتبدلت القوانين ومرت السنوات
لعنة أبدية تطارد المستبد في كل زمان ومكان
لعنة على الخنوع والجبن
لعنة تتردد على أفواه مستضعفي الأرض
الذين ما إن تواتيهم الفرصة
يمسكون بالكرباج ويستضعفون خلقا جديدا
