It is a short, easy and perfect explanation of how power can make the best "man" become what he said he hates.
The book, even though it was written decades ago, still explains the world as we know it today
I recommend this 100%
Today I finished reading #goodomens which was a sort of critic about religion, good and evil, following rules, knowing your place, having a destiny, knowing your purpose.
I took in my hand a short one for the weekend.. #animalfarm I still am not sure what it is about, once I finish it I will know.. but I think it is a critic about society and politics... maybe i am on a rebellious period of my life, wanting a satire or critic of life
An amazing representation of what occurred during the Russian revolution. It is a fantastic story and such a quick and easy read. I highly recommend this one. If you don‘t already know about the Russian revolution, this will make you want to learn more about what happened. This was a great re-read for me.
Listened to this entire audiobook while jogging tonight!
If I‘m being honest, I read Animal Farm in high school and was not a fan. I couldn‘t remember why and so I thought, maybe I should try again.
Now, many many moons later in my life, I really enjoyed this one! The animals have had enough of always doing what the farmer says, and they want to be treated as equals!
But as we all know, there are always those few who rise to the top...
Well that was disturbing.
Happy Monday, friends! For work today I have to re-read Animal Farm (one of my all-time favorites), and keep reading Blink. I then have to prep lessons for my high school and adult classes.
Summer session is going to start in 2 weeks, and I'm already feeling the first day jitters! 🤓📚
The jitters may also be coming from the prednisone that my doctor prescribed. I have to take it for 15 days and I cannot sit still, so it might be that. 😂🤔
Started reading this classic. Not sure why I haven't gotten to it before now. Borrowed it from #PrimeReading, and I think it is funny how the icon in the library has the iconic pig cover, but the actual cover in the ebook file is just an odd yellow cover with no graphic. Enjoying it so far.
Really glad I read this one!
Borrowed from Amazon Prime 🧡 If you‘re a prime member, you get to borrow 10 ebooks at a time with no due date. This is probably one of the benefits a lot of amazon prime members aren‘t aware of.
I can see why it‘s a classic. I can also see why it was read in my high schools general English classes over the college prep track classes. However, despite the easily seen plot devices and symbolism and foreshadowing, the message was good and the story was well-written.
Fun fact: once in high school I accidentally said foreplay instead of foreshadow in English class and my awkward nerdy self was made fun for it for the rest of the year.
Currently reading! It's an easy, quick read, but I never read this when I was in school and always meant to. Sitting with a glass of cranberry vodka and purple fingers from dying my hair and ready to finish this baby :) Finally checking one off the classics list !
Any English teachers willing to give a homeschool mom a word of advice for SAT prep? My daughter has read about 6 of the books I‘ve seen on prep lists, but between 8 years ago and 4 years ago. If you were to pick an absolute perfect book to read (she will take it in April for first time) what would it be? (I had several I absolutely hated and have tried not to push lit because it‘s “classic” more because “amazing”.)
A fascinating political satire. No matter how noble the intentions of a revolution are, the people who end up as leaders or in power continue to subdue the common folks, truth gets twisted, noble intentions and principles get trampled upon. Those who mean to do the right things are portrayed as traitors by those who are greedy of power. It's an amazing story. A must read for everyone.
“All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.”
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. I have always been guilty of admitting to have read and enjoyed animal farm when i never did it, and i am not even sorry as how can he be one of my favourite writers if i never read his major work. But i will admit that without reading this i would never had understood the seriousness of above sentence.
