The Lovereading4Kids comment
Anthony McGowan, Guest Editor June 2015 chose Animal Farm as one of his favourite short novels...."Orwell’s story of a farmyard revolution is one of the very few parables that works on both levels: his animal characters are so wonderfully drawn we come to love (or hate) them, share in their dreams, aspirations, and feel for their ultimate betrayal. Add to that the wider truths it tells us about power and injustice, and we have one of the greatest books of the twentieth century. All in 144 pages …"
Animal Farm - the history of a revolution, under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Wellington leads to the animals taking over the farm but it all went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Having got rid of their human master, the animals of Manor Farm look forward to a life of freedom and plenty. But as a clever, ruthless elite among them takes control, the other animals find themselves hopelessly ensnared in the old ways. Orwell's chilling story of the betrayal of idealism through tyranny and corruption, is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in 1945.
John Walsh, author and Independent columnist: "Smart 11-year-olds won't need any pre-knowledge of Marx, Lenin, Trotsky and 1917 to appreciate this brilliantly-told fable."
'It is the book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years.' Ruth Rendell
'Animal Farm is a timeless satire on the central tragi-comedy of all politics--that is, the tragi-comedy of corruption by power.' Timothy Garton Ash
'Animal Farm has seen off all the opposition. It's as valid today as it was fifty years ago.' Ralph Steadman
'Remains our great satire of the darker face of modern history.' Malcolm Bradbury
