Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
When I read this in school I flew through it. I do remember it made me uncomfortable, but at the time I couldn’t figure out why. I don’t think I understood very much of it.
Reading it so many years later, I can see how witty and intelligent it is. With all that’s going on in the world right now it definitely still makes me uncomfortable…and in many ways scared. At any rate I’m glad I re-read it. I do appreciate it much more than I did back then.
“Man serves the interests of no creature except himself.”
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
I did not under stand this book. I was very upset and appaled! Why would pigs be in charge of a hole farm?!? It was extremely stupid of them to send their hardest worker, Boxer, to the slaughter house! I would NEVER read this book again!
