We Recommend: Animal Farm

Animal Farm – George Orwell

At first glance, George Orwell’s Animal Farm seems like a children’s book. The talking animals and ease of the prose may trick the reader into believing Orwell’s work is a simple book, but this allegorical novel is deeper than it may appear. Orwell’s classic addresses the dangers of blind trust in a political leader and the corruption that occurs when given unfettered power. Animal Farm is a must read for anyone interested in politics, philosophy, or sociology.
