This actually wasn’t on the high school literature list for me, though many I know read this book back in the day *a Wednesday*. We did read George Orwell’s 1984 in my class, which I loved, so I was expecting big things.
Though I still think 1984 is my favorite George Orwell book, Animal Farm is certainly worth a read. The metaphor is exceptional and certainly gets the wheels turning. I’ve always admired Orwell’s writing and Animal Farm is no exception.
If you haven’t read it, do. It’s a nice little quick read, but the contents will certainly give you something to think about.
