Animal Farm

This is the one of the finest works of fiction ever written. Everyone should read Animal Farm at least once in his or her life.

I read it as a young kid and could understand it well. Of course, back then Orwell’s message went over my head. I thought it was just a story of animals on a farm. I later learned that it was a lampoon against communism.

All writers should strive to write like Orwell: concise, vivid and hard-hitting.

four legs good, two legs bad

If you like Orwell’s style of writing, you’ll enjoy his diatribe against the abuse of the English language in politics:
