Books Beginnings on Friday: Animal Farm by George Orwell
It's that special time of the week again! Props to Rose City Reader for hosting this meme where book bloggers share the first line or two from their current reads and provide some first impressions. Here's mine:
"Mr. Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the hen-houses for the night, but was too drunk to remember to shut the pop-holes."
Silly drunken farmer...I laughed. Yep, I'm hooked. This novella is usually part of the high-school English curriculum but sadly, it was never an assigned reading for me. Pity, because I am really loving it so far. Viva la revolution!
