About these books:
  • Animal Farm
    • George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel - a scathing satire on a downtrodden society's blind march towards totalitarianism. The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, however, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.
  • 1984
    • George Orwell's nineteen Eighty-Four is one of the most definitive texts of modern literature. Set in Oceania, one of the three inter-continental superstate that divided the world among themselves after a global war, Orwell's masterful critique of the political structures of the time, works itself out through the story of Winston Smith, a man caught in the webs of a dystopian future, and his clandestine love affair with Julia, a young woman he meets during the course of his work for the government. As much as it is an entertaining read, nineteen Eighty-Four is also a brilliant, and more importantly, a timeless satirical attack on the social and political structures of the world.

Bringing the Best of George Orwell's 1984 & Animal Farm together.
Nineteen Eighty-Four:

A Novel, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel. A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel's hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions - a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel - a scathing satire on a downtrodden society's blind march towards totalitarianism. The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, however, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

This YouTube version of 1984 is the best audiobook you will ever hear. Very creative.

I listened to both on audible last year. The narration of each of fantastic!
I think I would be more interested if we weren't living them right now.

No idea why this is so cheap - the sample audio is good, not a CG voice or a horrid voice actor. Ordinarily I'd say to get these from your local library through Libby or Overdrive, but having them easily available to me is definitely worth the $1.35.

Great find, OP

Fun fact: Amazon, in 2009 I think it was, mysteriously deleted 1984 from some peoples' kindle libraries. It was later restored after people escalated. Weird.

Do you need an audible subscription to listen to these? I don't have one, so apologies if that question doesn't make sense… I know audible often works in credits.

After listening to 1984 I've come to realize that across every era and every civilization, it is always 1984. Always will be.

Anyone else notice it's cheaper to buy them separately?

Amazon, the McDonalds of booksellers.

Already have the books on kindle and the complete works of George Orwell but not the audiobook versions. The YouTube versions are great but should I nab these 2 specifically?
