George Orwell's Animal Farm and 1984, two classic novels that remain as fresh and contemporary as today's news—packaged together as a great gift for Orwell fans and new readers alike.
The allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality, Animal Farm is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors.
"Thought Police." "Big Brother." "Orwellian." These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984. The story of one man's nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic, haunting tale.
1984 features an foreword by Thomas Pynchon and Animal Farm features an foreword by Ann Patchett.
