Well, anyway, the reviews were interesting. Thanks for posting them.
Animal Farm is a real drag. My upper-intermediate adult students are supposed to read it, an unaltered version. I don't know why. The books for the next level are much simpler.
A lot of people do like Animal Farm, I guess. I resisted reading it for years. Read it here to help Mari with a class. She was reading it with a student, who seemed to like it very much. It's so short, I read it so I could take the class and talk with the student about it, and since my students have to read it too, it's helpful, though not necessary, that I read it. I'm still avoiding Brave New World.
