Description

ANIMAL FARM

George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture. It is the
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. Out of their cleverness, the pigs
Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that proves disastrous.
The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is reestablished with the
bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: But some Animals Are More Equal Than Others. . . .

1984

In 1984, London is a grim city where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your
mind. Winston is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden
love affair, Winston finds the courage to join 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.
