This is one of Orwell's finest works. Small book, great for travel, but you will finish before you know it. Excellent work.

Powerful fable. The edition includes some helpful insight into Orwell's perspectives and experience as well: committed socialist who was disillusioned with the way the Soviets played communism out. It is well worth reading as a reminder of the fallibility of people in power.
