you should read the book

Animal Farm is an allegorical and dystopian novella first published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian revolution and then on into the Stalin era in the soviet union

Orwell wrote the book from November 1943 to February 1944, when the wartime alliance with the Soviet Union was at its height to show what he was really doing

The book is narrated in the same manner as a fable.The narrator describes everything in a very clear fashion,as if we were kids.As a result of being treated as such,we read animal farm through a kid’s eyes and are eager to know what happens next;we do not see the book as a somber and boring classic that has an underlying moral. May be that is why Orwell chose a farm as the allegorical setting for Russia: he wanted to hold our attention till the very end and make sure that we have understood everything,and is there any other way to do so apart from using a setting that even the youngest of kids will be familiar with?

tone

The tone of Animal Farm is one of cynicism of political movements that promote equality, but instead produce major class distinctions/stratification. Orwell, who was himself a socialist, was very skeptical not only of corrupt socialism, but of most political movements that boasted of equality but branded oppression to its powerless populace. The authors of the introductory pages label the text as a “cautionary text” on what possibly could happen if oppressive regimes control government.

The simplicity

This book is among the simplest you will ever find.The little sentences and the short chapters render it accessible to even a 9-year-old kid.Also,such simplicity ensures that readers grasp the message of the book without any difficulty.
