Animal Farm by George Orwell

This is a must read to understand the Russian Revolution, communisme and how it all affects the people living in it.

Even though this novel is not full of literary chef d’oeuvre phrases, it’s still an amazing read, because the main idea remains in the metaphors and the raw portrait of Stalin, portrayed by a pig – Napoleon. It’s so obvious that Napoleon is the prototype of Stalin, how he acts, changes rules for his gain and commands the farm, that it’s no surprise this novel was banned in Soviet Union.

The revolution is never for the people, but for the main figures. In this novel it shows very well how people gets high hopes for change, but in most cases, the Commander always has his own “constitution”, not people’s.

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” It pretty much sums up communist Soviet Union.

How I Became A Reader

Reading was not really my thing until I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins back in 2010. Before that, I was reading of course, but not with such a passion and love. After reading THG, I realized what i really liked at that age. And so i started reading YA, romance, contemporary, Sci-Fi books in my early teenage years. I can’t describe how much pleasure and love i found in these books. Then of course i started reading more serious books, like classics, poetry… Now if i have a good french classic in hand and a single light in my dark room, i can read all night. But that doesn’t mean that i don’t enjoy others, i completely adore a well written adult romance, i particularly love New adult books.

By the way, i think you shouldn’t force kids to read very serious books at early age, because if they don’t enjoy reading, it will just become a punishment. Let them read whatever brings them pleasure. They will find out themselves.

I don’ know why i write his post, maybe i just want to thank Suzanne Collins for writing this amazing trilogy and made me love reading. Oh and here’s this amazing quote by our beloved author J.K Rowling: if you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book. And i want to say that it’s a 100% true.
