Description



About the Book



Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution, the account of the struggle initiated by the animals that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into "Animal Farm, " is paired with "1984, " a succinct, frightening tale that has remained a potent reminder of the fate of those who suffer under totalitarian regimes.



Book Synopsis



This edition features George Orwell's best known novels - 1984 and Animal Farm - with an introduction by Christopher Hitchens.

In 1984, London is a grim city where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith joins a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.

Animal Farm is Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution -- an account of the bold struggle, initiated by the animals, that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into Animal Farm--a wholly democratic society built on the credo that All Animals Are Created Equal. But are they?



From the Back Cover



"The two novels that you now hold in your hands have become 'modern classics'. . . taught in many schools as examples of moral weight and political prescience . . . read for pleasure, excitement and instruction." -- from the Introduction by Christopher Hitchens
PRAISE FOR ANIMAL FARM
"A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable." -- The New York Times
"Absolutely first-rate . . . comparable to Voltaire and Swift." -- The New Yorker
"There are no replacements for a George Orwell, just as there are no replacements for a Bernard Shaw or a Mark Twain. . . . he pricked, provoked and badgered lazy minds, delighted those who enjoyed watching an orginal intelligence at work." -- Time

PRAISE FOR 1984
"1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present." -- Lionel Trilling 1949
"The most solid, the most brilliant, thing George Orwell has done." -- V.S. Pritchett
