    Inhaltsangabe

    Audible Studios presents two new recordings of George Orwell's most celebrated novels – 1984 and Animal Farm – with exclusive introductions, written and performed by Stephen Fry. 

    1984

    The classic dystopian social science fiction novel first published on 8th June 1949 as Orwell's ninth and final book completed in his lifetime. One of the most brilliant satires on totalitarianism and the power-hungry ever written, introducing new language as words of warning for future generations; 1984, Newspeak, Doublethink, Thought Police, Big Brother is watching you.... 

    Animal Farm

    One of the most influential works of the 20th century. A socio-political allegory that reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union. 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. Four legs good, two legs bad....

    About the narrator

    Stephen Fry is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, film director and all-round national treasure. Whilst at university, Fry became involved with the Cambridge Footlights, where he met his long-time collaborator and friend Hugh Laurie. As half of the comic double act Fry and Laurie, he co-wrote and co-starred in A Bit of Fry & Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster. Fry’s acting roles include Blackadder, Kingdom, Bones, V for Vendetta, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and The Hobbit trilogy. He has written and presented several documentary series and as a proudly out gay man, the award-winning Out There, documenting the lives of lesbian, bisexual gay and transgender people around the world is part of his 30-year advocacy of the rights of the LGBT community. Fry has written four novels, The Liar, The Hippopotamus (made in to a feature film in 2018), Making History and The Stars’ Tennis Balls. Translated into many languages, they have never been out of print. The most recently published works are Mythos and Heroes, constituting the first two parts of what will be a trilogy retelling the Greeks myths from the Creation to the aftermath of the Trojan War. Troy was published in November 2020.

    Great story but incomplete

    Always a pleasure to listen to Stephen! I have the feeling though, parts of the original story are left out...

    Wow. Stephen did it again

    In QI Stephen once told us that a lot of people clain to have read 1984 but really they have not. Now with his help, I can say at least I have listened to it. 😉

    Thank You Stephen Fry

    Nobody lived happily ever after!

    Excellent audio book. I was hoping the whole time that the main characters would come through. They did, however differently to what I expected.

    still as great and important as ever!

    Amazing books! I haven't read them in 20 years and it's shocking to see how relevant and current they are again (Trump).

    Stephen Fry

    Probably my favorite voice to listen to. Reading 2 of the most important books one of my favorite writers wrote. What's not to like? :)

    Marvelous reading of a classic

    Lively reading by Stephen Fry of two 20th century classics. Faultless. Listen to the baying of the sheep in their song "Four legs good, two legs bad" and you have a perfect voice actor.
