I also thought is was interesting how Orwell wrote about the rising generation and how they did not fully comprehend how Animal Farm came to be and did not fully appreciate it but once a year at the celebration of the Rebellion. I would compare that to our own country. I think sometimes that we forget all our founding fathers did so that we can live in the country we live in and have the freedoms we have. We didn't fight for them so some of the meaning gets lost to us. We only remember it once a year on July 4th. And even then, is the holiday only about fireworks? And now, it seems that the beliefs and values that our founding fathers had are going by the wayside and our country is suffering for it. That is just my little soap box for the day, thanks for reading.
Overall, I enjoyed reading Animal Farm and Farenheit 451. Both books really helped me reflect on my life and my actions. I guess I have a question though. When those pigs confessed to being in league with Snowball and tearing down the windmill, were they lying? I think that they were but it doesn't really make sense. Why would they lie? The only reason I can think of for them to lie is that they were smart enough to realize where everything was going and they wanted out so they decieded to committ suicide by dog.
