I can’t remember exactly when I first read Animal Farm, but I remember being totally fascinated how the farm animals had degenerated.
At that point, Lulu wasn’t so chim [not that i am today either...], so didn’t see that it was an allegory of the Russian Revolution, particularly directed against Stalin's Russia.
But now, many many years later, as Lulu watches the direction the country is being taken, Lulu cannot help but see the parallels between Animal Farm and her country. Lulu's not the only one, as you can see from some of the comments on Lulu's Blog and also from other socio-political blogs.
So, starting today, Lulu is going to post 2 chapters a day of the book, and who knows, maybe at the end of it, we can discuss it.
