Animal Farm by George Orwell
I can’t believe I never read this one in High School! I read “1984” and “Lord of the Flies” like everyone else. Heck, I read “Lord of the Rings” in Jr. High (Because Nerd).
It is so much easier and richer now that I am an old guy with historical perspective. As a kid, I never would have understood the personalities and events that Orwell was parodying. Much less would I be struck by how the same lies are told over and over and over – then in Soviet Russia, now in the US.
Try it again(or for the first time.) when you get a chance.
