One of the best books ever written,
This review is from: Animal Farm, 50th Anniversary Edition (Mass Market Paperback)
Needless to say the book needs no introduction, much less a review. But the main reason I am writing this is to set the minds of a few reviewers straight. I could not believe that people read this book without any thought or idea that there may be parallels to the book and our reality. They seemed to not understand that Orwell was using the fable as a device. It's funny they say that they could draw no meaning or lesson out of the book at all, because it sounds exactly like the stupid animals on the farm that could not see what was happening before their eyes. There are so many allusions to events in history the fact that they could not see even a few of them makes me cringe. Anyway I've finished ranting.
