Animal Farm was the first adult book I read, as an eleven-year old, and I have retained a fondness for Orwell’s writing ever since. Like Hemingway he is another journalist-turned-author, both share a clarity of language I admire. George Orwell said:
“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity”

Read the first paragraph of Animal Farm and 1984.
