Vintage Sci Fi: Book No.22

vintage-sf-badgeNo.22:  Animal Farm by George Orwell

As part of Vintage Sci Fi month being hosted by Little Red Reviewer I’ve given myself a small challenge to post a vintage book each day – one that I’ve read – and to highlight some of the covers.   Today’s choice is : Animal Farm by George Orwell.  Now this is another one of my choices where I wonder whether I’m stretching the definition of sci fi a little bit.  Published in 1945 this is part political allegory and part dystopia – although I don’t think I realised that when I first read it!

First Edition:

1946 Signet –  I like this one:

1964 Penguin: that’s a scary cover – reminder not to visit THAT farm!

1982 Penguin: psychedelic much:

1996 Plume Books – I actually really like this one:

    You’re doing a great job listing books and telling something about them! Keep it up! 🙂

    The 1964 cover – those animals look like they ate some really hot chili peppers, lol.

      There were a lot of covers for this but I decided to narrow it down! Otherwise this would have been a very LONG post!

    Sadly another one I haven’t read! I like the 1996 Plume Books and 2008 Penguin covers.

      I read this quite a long time ago – I did find it fascinating to be honest and the ending is very strong.
