    It's lame to you because you're young and don't understand what it's really about. It's a good book, one day when you're older you'll understand it.

    lame young understand book older understand Animal Farm

    It tells the story of the rise of Stalin and communism in a way that's accessable for those who aren't interested in reading their history book.

    That's honey badger, who rules. In any case, as I said, people who dislike Animal Farm are bozos.

    It needs to be taught with history so the reader gets the context. It was based on real people, groups and movements of the time. Without the context it is hard to make a connection to it.

    The man was somewhat of a prophet...unfortunately. I think it's great that you enjoy reading! That's getting to be a rare thing these days.

    Ugh. I read this book in eighth grade, and personally, I didn't like it. No one in my class did.
    It teaches a good message, but it is just so boring. If they could find a more interesting book on the same subject, I'd be all for it.

    Animal Farm pretty much explains what happened in Soviet Russia, how a good ideal or philosophy can go horribly wrong and be twisted into something it isn't.
