Animal Farm

I finished Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ a couple nights ago, and I can’t begin to explain how exceedingly well done that book was, although such a work is rare, too. See what I did there?

I love Orwell’s dry humor, and the biting irony that the book ended with. I am a huge fan of Animal Farm now, which I suppose makes me a…fanimal. I ended up memorizing the tune to ‘Beasts Of England’ afterwards, which I suppose solidifies my fanimalism.

I’d encourage you to read it. Not only is it an interesting read on a base level, but if you pay attention, you’ll realize that the story of AF reflects the rise of the Soviet Union, and also that Napoleon is actually Stalin. Or at least, that’s who he represents.

Read it, and it will make a lot more sense.

Remember,

All beasts are created equal…but some beasts are more equal than others.
