My Adventure Into Animal Farm
After a busy week that included several back and forth trips to Albany, hours spent dancing and wearing a tuxedo to my girlfriend's prom, it is time to relax myself in the first of George Orwell's two punch book throw down on communism and state control - his 1945 classic - Animal Farm.
I have read numerous reviews on his allegorical work, but after devouring the words written in 1984 over the past winter, I felt compelled to pick up a copy when visiting a nearby Barnes & Noble earlier today and thus my second foray into the works of Orwell and his critique of Stalinism are set to begin.
Feel free to use the comments section to discuss Orwell's works or to discuss books in general.
