User Review  - thebacklistbook - LibraryThing

A dystopian novella comparing the Russian Kremlin to that of a drastically mismanaged farm, is nothing short of the most annoying book i have read to date, though I may be biased. I had to read for a class, three different times. Read full review

This book was alright for me. Nothing remarkable to me but it was ok. I found myself wanting to yell at the animals for just blindly following the pigs. It ticked me off what happened to Boxer. Read full review

About the author (1987)

George Orwell was born Eric Hugh Blair in 1903 in Motihari in Bengal, India and later studied at Eton for four years. Orwell was an assistant superintendent with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma. He left the position after five years and then moved to Paris, where he wrote his first two books, Burmese Days and Down and Out In Paris. Orwell then moved to Spain to write but decided to join the United Workers Marxist Party Militia. After being decidedly opposed to communism, Orwell served in the British Home Guard and with the Indian Service of the BBC during World War II. He started writing for the Observer and was literary editor for the Tribune. Soon after he published the world-famous book, Animal Farm, which became a huge success for Orwell. It was then towards the end of his life when Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four. George Orwell died on January 23, 1950 in London.
