Animal Farm

“Animal Farm” is one of those books you probably hated reading when you were high school, but luckily, I didn’t have the misfortunate of encountering this book through required reading. Therefore, I loved it when I read it.

Here’s a brief overview:

The animals on the farm don’t like being “oppressed” by the humans, therefore they stage a coup and overthrow the humans to gain control of the farm. Things seem to be going well, until someone lets the power get to his head.

You may already be able to see where this is going, or you may not, but I will tell you it is deep.

This is one of the shortest reads I’ve done in awhile — it took me a day (maybe 5 hours) to finish, but Orwell packs so much meaning into the words he writes.

Readers of this story learn so much about the dynamics of power and how they play a role in every aspect of our lives.

I strongly suggest everyone with any slight interest in reading to pick up this book and give it a shot.

Happy reading,
Kimberly

    I unfortunately was “forced” to read this in high school… so I went into it with a bit of a negative attitude, but you are so right. Very deep!! Yet it’s easy to understand. That’s why I liked it!
