Rebelion en la granja*Planeta
Un clásico de lectura obligatoria.Los maltratados y explotados animales de una granja le arrebatan el control de la misma al granjero. Con un idealismo incendiario y lemas exaltados, comienzan la creación de un paraíso de progreso, justicia e igualdad. Esta es la puesta en escena de una de las fábulas satíricas más reveladoras jamás escritas, un relato para adultos de fantasía hiriente que narra la evolución desde una rebelión contra la tiranía hasta un totalitarismo igual de terrible.Cuando Rebelión en la granja se publicó por primera vez, se consideró que la obra era un ataque a la Unión Soviética de Stalin. Hoy día, es espantosamente claro que donde quiera y cuando quiera la libertad se vea atacada, bajo cualquier divisa, la claridad tajante y el feroz humor de la obra maestra de George Orwell tienen un significado y un mensaje que son tremendamente actuales.
