“Animal Farm” book review

I heard about this book in my sociology class and it peaked my interest. Basically the animals on the farm form a rebellion and start running the farm for themselves. You get to see all the stages of a society forming and evolving in an accelerated forum, because the animals have shorter memories and life spans.

I found the plot to be fascinating and tragically close to reality. In the end the animals end up worse off than they were before and it’s sad to see previous equals now abusing each other. But it’s a very real thing.

The style of writing was what I truly loved. It is very rare to see a book correctly written in the omniscient point of view. If anyone wants to see an example of how it’s supposed to be done, read this book.

I will definitely be adding more of George Orwell’s books to my to-read list.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
