Animal Farm

If you haven’t read George Orwell’s Animal Farm since high school, college, or never, I encourage you take a little time to peruse this magnificent political fable—which he makes plausible with believable situations and characters. You can also find the full text on the Web.

As Orwell sums up in this timely 1946 novella: All animals are created equal. But some animals are created more equal than others.

You will also note many ideas from this book that he later used and crafted into his other brilliant novel: Nineteen Eighty Four.

Considering the political climate at this moment, your suggestion here should be on everyone’s reading list.

Thanks again for a great site—I visit often.
