Have you read Animal Farm by George Orwell?

I recently read Animal Farm by George Orwell. It is a political satire of how initial idealism gives way to corruption and hunger for power. It has been written in a witty and poignant manner. I found it to be one of the best political satires that I have read. What is your opinion on this book?

Its a great book. It used to be required reading in high school though I think its banned now along with the lord of the flies & many more. Perhaps the people banning these books could have taken a lesson from it before they banned it.

I read it as part of my Literature text when I was in school. The first time when I read it, I find it amusing. The more I read it, the more indignant I become. Gradually, I learnt to accept it. That's the fact of life. Perhaps that's one reason why I become skeptical of mankind.

I loved that book, though as a child I did not understand it. More than ten years have passed since that book was published and I was given it to read, and I can still remember that there was one lesson on teaching the animals how to write. Ah, nostalgia.
