However, as with all great political plans, some animals see a bigger share of the rewards than others, and the animals start to question their supposed utopia. They decide that working for humans is doing them no favours, so under the leadership of Napoleon, the only Berkshire Boar on the farm, and the other pigs, they drive out the farmer and his cohorts and set about structuring their own society.Based on a list of supposedly animal-friendly rules such as "four legs good, two legs baaaaad", the animals work together to harvest their own food and run their own farm. However, little by little, the rules begin to mysteriously change, and the pigs seem to gain power little by little, making the animals question what society they were striving for in the first place and whether their new-found freedom is as liberating as they might have hoped.
With direct allusions to political figures such as Lenin, Marx, Trotsky, Stalin, and Molitov, to name but a few, Animal Farm is one of the greatest socio-political works of all time, and this UNABRIDGED audio does it absolute justice.

Klassische Geschichte großartig erzählt
Atmosphärischer als manch andere Hörbücher die ich bis jetzt gehört habe, da der Einsatz von verschiedenen Stimmen und Musik perfekt gepasst haben. Sprecher war super, Geschichte ist ein Klassiker.

At first I thought it would be boring but i was surprised by how much I enjoyed the story. Worth a read, well written story which brings up themes such as society, power, ideals, control, greed. Narrator is very good and mimics the animal voices really well. I'm sure this book has inspired many modern movies and tv series.
