Los animales de la granja de los Jones se sublevan contra sus dueños humanos y les vencen. Pero la rebelión fracasará al surgir entre ellos rivalidades y envidias, y al aliarse algunos con los amos que derrocaron, traicionando su propia identidad y los intereses de su clase. Aunque Rebelión en la granja fue concebida como una despiadada sátira del estalinismo, el carácter universal de su mensaje hace de este libro un extraordinario análisis de la corrupción que engendra el poder, una furibunda diatriba contra el totalitarismo de cualquier especie y un lúcido examen de las manipulaciones que sufre la verdad histórica en los momentos de transformación política.

Pigs should be more public-spirited, I've heard.

3 stars

I was never required to read this at any point, so I kind of... avoided reading it until I realised I probably should (which was around the time that I learned that TS Eliot rejected it because the pigs were too Trotskyite (and that they should be more public-spirited).

It was quite enjoyable, but it's so easy to see exactly where it developed from. It definitely is incredibly well-crafted, but I don't think it's meant for those who've not had much of an education in WWII and Stalin. For those people, it'd be confusing to not really have the background necessary; this is often the problem that I have with some of the literature teachers I've met who toss it in their syllabus (and then forget they need to discuss these elements in order for their students to appropriately understand it, as if the history can be neglected -- these …

Review of 'Animal Farm' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

‘Animal Farm’ is truly an interesting story; we all know what the story represents but George Orwell portrayed communists Russia in World War II really well. The book was short and I was able to read it in one day, almost in one sitting. I think we could spend a long time discussing which animal represents which Russian and working out which battle was The Battle of the Cowshed or The Battle of the Windmill. I did especially enjoy the flag (The Horn and Hoof Flag reminiscent of the hammer and sickle), Squealer (propaganda pig) and Moses the Raven (the Russian Orthodox Church). It is definitely one of those books you need to read at least once in your lifetime. I think I enjoyed it more than ‘Nineteen Eighty Four’.
