You Can’t Please Everyone – Animal Farm

One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Animal Farm:

This book is disgraceful! It is the worst book ever! It really stinks! All it has is animals that run around and say “Comrade!”
Good grief!

Of all the things I have ever read! What a terrible and unrealistic story. I mean, how can animals talk? I have a parrot that talks but not in complete sentences. And besides the pigs run the show in this and if it really happened the cats would run things because everyone knows that cats are born leaders. Anyway, I wouldn’t reccomend this book to my worst enemy. I read this book to my nephew, Simon and he started crying and now he is afraid of pigs and horses because he says that they will rise up and establish a totalitarianist state and will rule over us. Ughhhh! It gives me a head ache.

This book was terible. I was forced into reading this book in school. Which is no surprise, this is exactly the kind of book our government wants to force people to read, so they hand it to schools, and try to force us to read it. This book was written by a insane man named George Orwell, who hated society, and displayed that by bashing humanity, and making people look like lower lifeforms than animals. He used pigs to potray govermnent officials (which isn’t a bad choice if you ask me), horses for hard working people, dogs as SS troops, etc… Throught this entire book, he constantly tries to show that humans are sick people, that will corrupt no matter what happens. To be honest I think this man is crazy and needs to be locked up.

the book ‘animal farm’ was not very good. we read it in english, and the book is so boring i almost fell asleep reading it. george orwell must be old. i do not recommend this book to anyone.. try watching tv instead. but dont watch the movie, its worse than the book.

Perhaps the worst book I have ever layed eyes on. I can’t stand this kind of unrealistic plot, (whose ever heard of pigs giving lectures about politics). If I weren’t having to read this for English 10 I could be digging into a true classic and my holidays would be much more enjoyable.

This book sucks so bad I couldn’t even get through it. I quit reading it before chapter three. I would not recommend this book to anyone you will waste your time and in the end or whenever you throw it away you’ll be asking yourself who would write a book with talking animals?

The book ANIMAL FARM was a deceitful and untrue book. It was full of lies implying that socialism was wrong to the reader who didn’t read meaning into George Orwell’s book. Some people may say that the book was a great acheivement and made us get rid of communism and socialism, but they may have also watched the movie. The movie ANIMAL FARM made the book seem 100 times better than it actually was. There may be people in the world who have absolutely no taste, and have a great love for the book Animal Farm, but if you have any sense you will do anything to get out of reading the book, including burning the book.

This is george orwells take on the russian revolution that tells lies and myths after another. I would suggest that others read historical tracts to reveal Orwells obivious bias and work for the british ruling class. He maligns the great achievements of the working class in the soviet union to animalism, also how human can change and create a better society. Eventhough the SU had its imperections and finally in the 1950s returned to capitalism(which they called socialism).

For all of you out there that see this book as a classic, I’m sorry, but it was the most incoherent gibberish I have ever read in my life. I was forced to read it for an english class, and I found it nearly impossible to finish. It drags on and I don’t think it sets a good example. It deters people from standing up for their rights, making it seem like revolution always ends in failure.

This book is, without a doubt, the most over rated “classic” I have ever read. It’s not like there are multiple themes and ideas up for discussion here. The book has one point that it beats to death over and over again. Why anybody would ever need Cliffs notes to figure out what the book is about is beyond me. If you read the first 20 pages, you already know how the book is going to end. What, you mean the pigs gave themselves even MORE power? Shocking! I never saw that one coming! Save your energy for a book worth reading.

Its is so annoying to see liberals writing books in politics, and i dont care who they attack- Liberals hate everybody else. Stupid guy had to express his feelings and whine about Russia. Okay Russia was bad, but this is just annoying. I didnt learn anything new, and even if i did i probably wouldnt care. A kid who reads this is going to be shocked at what he reads, no magic, just boring old crap.

Did Al Gore direct this? I was just you know, curious because the animals are talking and stuff and they even have like, this hierarchy of power and things don’t make sense like that. This is an anti goverment film but all I hear is Total arin ism which gets to be useful when instilled in the drinking water of places like Africa. Well we gave them animals to eat and they just turned them loose in fields and never fed them and they died. This book is co-written I think by Gore and Moore, but who knows I mean anymore you cannot figure out who is who, but I am Cathy and I escaped from Taurine and this is my review of Animal Farm. Oh, and even if you give a pig pickles it will still attack you if it is hungry!

  5. dancing caveman,

    I would imagine some are satire or attempts at it. Especially the bit about talking animals. They can’t be that stupid… can they?

    Everyone knows the only animal that can talk is a snake, and the only plant that can talk is a flaming shrubbery.

    This book is just stupid.

  10. Mike K,

    The irony is that a lot of the reviewers caught on that the animals represented different human roles but still thought it’s just a book about talking animals!

    I saw an animated version of this story in 8th grade or so. I found it deep and impacting, but it disturbed the hell out of me. I guess that means I understood it. Or maybe it’s just because I’m an animal lover.
