Résumé de l'éditeur

Animal Farm is George Orwell's great socio-political allegory set in a farmyard, where the animals decide to seize the farmer's land and create a co-operative that reaps the benefits of their combined labours.
However, as with all great political plans, some animals see a bigger share of the rewards than others, and the animals start to question their supposed utopia. They decide that working for humans is doing them no favours, so under the leadership of Napoleon, the only Berkshire Boar on the farm, and the other pigs, they drive out the farmer and his cohorts and set about structuring their own society.Based on a list of supposedly animal-friendly rules such as "four legs good, two legs baaaaad", the animals work together to harvest their own food and run their own farm. However, little by little, the rules begin to mysteriously change, and the pigs seem to gain power little by little, making the animals question what society they were striving for in the first place and whether their new-found freedom is as liberating as they might have hoped.
With direct allusions to political figures such as Lenin, Marx, Trotsky, Stalin, and Molitov, to name but a few, Animal Farm is one of the greatest socio-political works of all time, and this UNABRIDGED audio does it absolute justice.

One of the best books I've ever listened to

George Orwell crafted an amazing book that mustn't be missed. Along with 1984, Orwell manages to expose the true meaning of Stalinism, his works deserving to be thought in every school in every country that pretends to be liberal and democratic.

Also, the narration by Simon Callow is beyond any expectations, managing to deliver the strong moments of the book using the funny voices of the animals, expanding upon the already well written personalities of the characters in this book.

All in all, I consider this book a must-listen for everyone in love with history and politics.
