'एनिमल फार्म' जॉर्ज ऑरवेल का लाक्षणिक लघु उपन्यास है, जो उन घटनाओं का वर्णन करता है, जिनके कारण 1917 की रूसी क्रांति हुई और फिर सोवियत संघ में स्टालिन का युग आया। एक फार्म पर आधारित इस उपन्यास में उन पशुओं का विद्रोह होता है, जो मनुष्यों पर आधिपत्य चाहते हैं। मिस्टर जॉन्स के फार्म में रहनेवाले पशु मनुष्यों की सेवा करते-करते थक चुके हैं और उन्हें लगता है कि मनुष्यों द्वारा अपनी सारी आवश्यकताओं के लिए पशुओं का इस्तेमाल किया जाना घोर शोषण है। क्रांति की शुरुआत उस दिन होती है, जब मिस्टर जॉन्स पशुओं को चारा देना भूल जाते हैं। इसके बाद पशुओं ने नेपोलियन और स्नोबॉल नाम के दो सूअरों के नेतृत्व में मनुष्यों पर आक्रमण करने और फार्म पर कब्जा जमाने की योजना बना ली। संवेदना और मर्म को स्पर्श करनेवालí
This was a cute book with animals being the main characters. I enjoyed the book. I gave it 4 stars for the fact that it didnÃ¢â?¬â?¢t say much about the humans after the beginning. I would definitely recommend this book.

I think this is one that everyone needs to read at some point in their lives. It is such a powerful perspective on society that still applies today. I definitely recommend it.

A classic that holds up well to today
I remembered very little of this from reading it as a young teen, and I was surprised to find that I sort of enjoyed it. I tend to find classics pretty overrated, outdated, and not diverse enough, but I think that this one holds up pretty decently, in a world where "All Men are Created Equal" [but some are more equal than others]. It's also a pretty quick read, so if you want to dip your toes into the classics, this might be a good place to start.

I've read this book before but get to be exposed to it again while our daughter reads it for a class. It arrived for her in very good condition. The book is a reminder to its readers of how easily people can be duped by an idealistic sounding speaker and that it is most important to truly think about the consequences of one's choices personally and to a group. How easy it is want someone or some entity to contribute to one's welfare without realizing the cost of giving up personal responsibility for oneself to a governing entity.

Beautiful language but not the best fiction
I am very fond of George Orwell but Animal Farm didn't seem quite as good as others. The language was, as always, wonderful but the plot didn't particularly appeal to me; this is despite the clear parallels with Soviet Russia and the vivid descriptions of the animals on 'Animal Farm'. Nonetheless, it was a short and pleasant read.
