thats good. I havn't. And also that wasn't directed at you but just a general comment about Animals
Read it! It's one of the best books I've ever had in my hands. Almost as good as 1984.
I loved 1984! and considering 1984 is the animal version of it (in a sense) it probably similar haha but ya I'm in the middle of four books unfortunately although animal farm is pretty high on the list of books I wanna read in the future.

You've never read 1984 or Animal Farm? In both books, Orwell is skewering or making light of the problems inherent in a communist state. Both books were written after the second World War, when Stalin was premier of the Soviet Union. In fact, many of the things described in 1984, are things that actually happened in Stalinist Russia.
I see. I tried to get Animal Farm, but the only copy they had was a used copy. I was going to buy it until I took a look at it. I'm interested, though. I'm going to start a thread on another forum, I hope political threads are okay.
