Animal Farm | George Orwel
post image

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

1984 | George Orwell

Finished this book a couple days ago. I wasn‘t overwhelmed to be honest. And it could be because I set the bar too high. Orwell discusses the same concept with Animal Farm, wherein there‘s always a higher and lower society and that history always ends up “changing”. If you ask me, both are similar and unique in a way. But #animalfarm is still my favorite.

rretzler Interesting take. I read both books many years ago, and 1984 was one of my favorites. I always felt that Animal Farm was Orwell's commentary on the politics of that time (more specifically the Russian revolution,) while 1984, having some similarities, was his take on where he felt the future might be going. I have found it prophetic in many ways over the years as we sacrifice personal freedom for “protection“, especially as technology is developed 7mo
vumblereads @rretzler Yes I think that‘s a big discussion revolving around the book. I guess I should give it more credit knowing that it was written earlier than it was 1984. When Winston, the main character, started reading Goldstein‘s book, it reminded me so much of Animal Farm. 🙂 7mo
gilroyc I always felt that 1984 was a touch more subtle than Animal Farm. 7mo

vumblereads Subtle in what way @gilroyc ? 🙂 7mo
gilroyc Personal opinion: Animal Farm is a steady dropping of bricks as the pigs are constantly betraying their original thoughts. 1984 has more of a thriller feel with when and how, so the bricks are slid in, rather than dropped. 7mo
vumblereads @gilroyc 😂 yes they‘re always changing their opinions and everyone else is dumb enough to believe it, but it‘s just like in 1984! One minute they‘re at war with Eurasia, the next they‘re at war with Eastasia and they were never ever at war with eurasia 🤷🏻‍♀️ I get it George Orwell, people lied to you! 😅 7mo

Happy #humpday to all my new #litsy friends!
What better book to read than #animalfarm while chillin with a #zooski at the #denverzoo. 🐪🐫

If it weren't pigs, who do you think would rule the animal farm? 🐷🐖🐽

WhatThePuck Maybe Moses if he hadn't left. He could spin tails and lie just as well as the pigs. Plus he was used to the high life being a pet. 1y
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck Sugarcandy Mountain sure did sound delicious! 1y
