Inhaltsangabe

Animal Farm is George Orwell's great socio-political allegory set in a farmyard, where the animals decide to seize the farmer's land and create a co-operative that reaps the benefits of their combined labours.

However, as with all great political plans, some animals see a bigger share of the rewards than others, and the animals start to question their supposed utopia. They decide that working for humans is doing them no favours, so under the leadership of Napoleon, the only Berkshire Boar on the farm, and the other pigs, they drive out the farmer and his cohorts and set about structuring their own society.Based on a list of supposedly animal-friendly rules such as "four legs good, two legs baaaaad", the animals work together to harvest their own food and run their own farm. However, little by little, the rules begin to mysteriously change, and the pigs seem to gain power little by little, making the animals question what society they were striving for in the first place and whether their new-found freedom is as liberating as they might have hoped.

With direct allusions to political figures such as Lenin, Marx, Trotsky, Stalin, and Molitov, to name but a few, Animal Farm is one of the greatest socio-political works of all time, and this UNABRIDGED audio does it absolute justice.

Simon Callow's performance is perfect!

I listened to the whole thing in one day, which is very rare for me. George Orwell's classic is perfectly brought to life by Callow's voice work. Every character is distinctive. Excellent all round.

Klassische Geschichte großartig erzählt

Atmosphärischer als manch andere Hörbücher die ich bis jetzt gehört habe, da der Einsatz von verschiedenen Stimmen und Musik perfekt gepasst haben. Sprecher war super, Geschichte ist ein Klassiker.

Classic of modern literature

I always thought the hype about this book to be exaggerated, but this is a perfect metaphor for revolutions in the real world. We are only human after all and subject to the same weakness for power and affluence as Stalin, Napoleon and every other person. The only difference is that most of us aren't in the position of power. This book demonstrates marvelously the ability of power to corrupt to the core.

A true imagination

Writer is so successful in painting a revolution and how it can cause a dictatorship afterwards. It truely is amazing how he can portrait it so flawlessly.

Reminds me of Romania after the fall of communism.

The scene of Boxer the horse is so suggestive of so many hard working people ultimately being sacrificed by the very people they served.

a classic

At first I thought it would be boring but i was surprised by how much I enjoyed the story. Worth a read, well written story which brings up themes such as society, power, ideals, control, greed. Narrator is very good and mimics the animal voices really well. I'm sure this book has inspired many modern movies and tv series.

great book

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in studying the causes and storylines of awfully spoilt human nature!
