How do people over the age of 14 enjoy this book? I thought I would reread it, and the imbuing of ideology is so lazy and transparent, I want to put it down forever

I love Orwell but that book is shit. Let's pretend he never wrote fiction.

I remember 1984 being better, but i'm scared to reread that also.
>>
>>7336764
I lied, a little. 1984 is better as an adult.
>>
>>7336764

i personally found animal farm to be better written and more coherent than 1984,so yeah, maybe steer clear of a reread

Quit being crybabies and accept a weird book for what it is.

I accuse OP of making a cheap political statement.

>>7336771
Why, tho

Animal farm is very coherent, to the point of being written for children

Are you just a mad Marxist-Leninist or do you legitimately dislike the book? I'm a commie but I thought it was good.
>>
>>7337155
It's fine, I just wanted to say something inflammatory to start discussion. I do find it a little shallow at times though.
>>
>>7337169
I knew it!

It's simple on purpose. It's pretending to be a children's book, for crying out loud.
>>
>>7337247
Right and I understand the allegory and everything I just don't fully understand where the transition from extended metaphor to canonical western lit comes in.

Why? I don't expect every atlantic article to be here in fifty years...

I feel the same way about Animal Farm and 1984. It was great when I didn't know better. Now that I'm well read and more worldly wise (Particularly about politics), a retrospective read shows that it's total garbage and only touted by plebeians who simply don't know any better.

Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago is much better
>>
>>7336746
I'm 23, and I kind of liked the book.
Not very good, but very readable and clear, and that's something I appreciate as much in novels as in philosophy, for there seems to be a lot of writers today for which their obscurity is seen as good - even when this obscurity is beyond what they themselves can comprehend.

I find the book to be clear in what it says and it success in creating a engaging representation of it. Agreeing or not with the political message is a different matter (I personally think that Orwell's political thinking may be considered naive more than once) when it comes to judge a work of fiction.

I thought like you once, but after a while you'll recognize it as a masterpiece.
