I love this one, and much more than 1984.
Just finished Animal Farm, I would have to agree with both of you AF was much more enjoyable to read compared to 1984. @oc_in_fw you are spot on with your analysis in AF showing how it takes root, and ‘84 showing it established. Both books do a good job of drawing attention to and illuminating what is, as history proves, inevitable and what can/will happen with/in that type of society.I may have liked this one a little more than 1984. AF shows how authoritarianism takes root. 1984 shows it in its established brutality
That book is so great that it is hard to believe the same author wrote Closing Time (sequel to Catch 22). I have never wanted to burn a book until I read CT.
Just started today
That and Without Remorse are my two favorite Clancy novels.
