Dear friend - a letter about Animal Farm

Extracts from this document...


Dear friend! We've just read "Animal Farm" in class. "Animal farm", or "Animal Farm: A Fairy Story" as the original title was, was a little manuscript which was published right after the Second World War by George Orwell, ever heard of him? It was a book that was originally placed in the shelves of children's books, and was read as a fairytale (as the previous title presumed you would do). But behind the naive and sort of innocent surface, there was a hidden message... between the lines there laid a story about political reforms and great historical events. A story about revolution, power and animalism! ...read more.


When I read "Animal Farm", I clearly saw that the animals in the story were actually used to illustrate real human beings from historical revolutions. Just as a puppet show for children.

I think this is a book with meaning and moral lessons for everyone; it's suitable for all age, especially pupils and students, so it's perfect for you! I would say this is a unique fable, with a classic theme, and with a brilliant ending (which I won't reveal to you). It's sort of "mind-blowing"! I hope by telling you this that you will experience the same thing! Order it now! It can never be read too often! :) Best regards, Tony. ...read more.
