Animal Farm

The animal farm animals are free, having rebelled and expelled their human masters. Working hard under the leadership of the pigs Snowball and Napoleon, the animals toil and work harder than ever. At least all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

Hitch 22

The memoirs of the immaculate Christopher Hitchens. From birth to almost the end, it is never a boring story of a man who witnessed the history of the political world in the 20th century. From bohemian soixante-huitard to the aftermath of the Iraq war, Hitchens is always championing what he believes to be the rational truth.

Homage to Catalonia

Orwell writes about the Spanish Civil War and occasionally touches on the fascists. He writes about the fractions that the government was more interested in fighting amongst themselves than the enemy. And with some indignation, tells on how lies travel half the world before the truth gets its shoes on.

Why Orwell Matters

Hitchens calmly and effectively demolishes the right, the left, and all others who have taken Orwell's name in vain. He delves into the absurd scenarios in 1984 and Animal Farm and highlights the same exact scenarios from real-life scenarios. Imperialism, Fascism, and Communism, the great calamities of the 19th century, are shown through the lens of Orwell, and also how he always lands on the right side of history.
