    Description

    George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel - a scathing satire on a downtrodden society's blind march towards totalitarianism.The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, however, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

    Excellently horrific

    I have been listening to Dr. Jordan B. Peterson for quite a while now, where he (Dr. Peterson) would frequently discuss the horrors of communism. This is my first own read and exposure to a book that talks about the same horrors in which Dr. Peterson has often discussed.
    I must say that George Orwell is brilliant in drawing out the horrors of a slow decent into a totalitarian authority, through such magnificent storytelling. Though the characters seemed somewhat comical (that being the case with animals that is human-level intelligent, and trying to do human things); the creeping diabolical rise of tyranny was very well felt as I went through the story.
    I felt that the narration was well done (except a few mistakes here and there). It included some pretty nice voice-acting of the different characters. For me, it brought the characters to life, as I went through the story. The audio book is very low cost, and well-worth every penny it cost.

    This was eye opening.

    This sent shivers down my spine and is the best allegory for communism I have ever read.

    Chapter 7 is full off mistakes that were not edited out

    Just to get it out of the way, Chapter 7 is full of mistakes that were never edited out. The narrator mispronounces words and then practices them a few times before continuing reading. He also repeats several lines a few times.

    But the actual book is great and besides Chapter 7, the narrator did a good job. Although it is not really his fault, rather whoever edited the audiobook.

    Great book, bad sound

    The book was amazing and the narrator did a great job. The only complaint I have is with the sound. The sound goes from very loud to very quiet throughout the book, you have to continually change the volume setting even in a car.

    A Classic of Imagination

    Wow. Loved how original and imaginative this title is, and how prescient it still is today. A wonderful parody of human society where the animals revolt against their owners in hopes of creating a collective farm "for us by us". Animal Farm was a quick listen that really captured my attention with its detail and fun parallels between animal and human. In particular, I love how each animal performs a unique function and everything kind of "carries on" despite upheaval and power struggle. In particular, I liked how the pigs ascend the throne, with Old Major inciting the riot and Napoleon battling Snowball for overall leadership of the farm. Orwell does a fantastic job commenting on power corruption using the pigs to illustrate. Additionally, I loved the character of Boxer the work horse. "I will work harder" and "Napoleon is always right" become his guiding maxims, up until the day he works himself to death, just days before he should retire and enjoy a relaxing life of pasture.

    Would read again, and will be fun to reference in the future.

    Classic story, excellent reading

    A classic that everyone should read. it's short, but it needs to be listened to. The narrator was perfect and the story was intriguing.

    scary the comparisons

    I've read 1984 and could see, at the time, some obvious similarities to the current state of affairs. As time has progressed those similarities have become more obvious. Animal Farm however would have been a more insightful comparison decades ago. No matter the side of the isle with which your vote goes, you will find painfully obvious examples of the characters in this book, in your face, every day.

    Great read, lacking editing

    The book, of course, is a true classic. It is well performed and a pleasant listen.

    The recording however, had some issues. Here and there you'll find abrupt cuts. And worse, by chapter 7 there are several errors where parts of the script are read twice and put out of order making it somewhat disorienting. Funnier was that on one of the re-reads the editor forgot to cut a mispronounced "coccidiosis" followed by a correct read.

    If these issues can be cleared up, it is a full five stars.

    Great story. Bad editing

    What a fantastic story. I could hardly put it down even though it was terrible to the bone.

    The voicing was fantastic as well. BUT the editing was abismal. The pauses between sentences was often too short. At one point, in the middle of the book, he started rereading from about 5 min back!

    a clear look at the future by reflecting the past

    I loved every second of every word. The Voice inflections were fantastic. the ending in my opinion was utterly shocking. an excellent read

    Editing mistakes

    Great story and well read. However, there are a few editing mistakes in the audio. For example at one time two audio traces are overlapping and in another instance, a passage is being read again (it should have been cut out).
