Product description

"It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine". So wrote George Orwell in the original blurb for the first edition of "Animal Farm" in 1945. His simple and tragic fable, describes what happens when the animals drive out Mr Jones, the farmer, and attempt to run the Manor Farm themselves. "Animal Farm" has become a world-famous classic of English prose, and is a strong political allegory with parallels to the old Soviet regime. Reader Simon Callow is a British actor with a firmly-established reputation for impeccable performance on-stage, on-screen, and on audiobook.

Review quote

* Callow somehow manages to give a simultaneous multilevel interpretation suited to all ages. What a pro. The Guardian * Simon Callow's remarkable narration brings out the many layers of Orwell's fable...Brilliant. The Observer * If 'peerless prose' could apply to one writer alone, I'd accord it to Orwell. The Guardian
