      Animal farm

      Animal Farm, with its combination of political allegory and children’s fairy tale, still fascinates readers all over the world. When the animals on Manor Farm overthrow their human master, they attempt to create a utopian state which will give them freedom and equality and be an example to the rest of the world. However, they soon discover that some animals are more equal than others. Orwell explores the dark side of human nature showing how greed and selfishness can lead to tyranny if people are not aware of what is happening around them.

      This apparently simple novella gives a clear picture of how power corrupts and how easy it is to manipulate the truth, themes which are just as relevant today as they were in 1945.

      1984

      A world where the laws of nature obey the laws of the Party, where love is a crime and history is pure fiction. You will never be alone here, not even with your own thoughts, as the telescreen keeps a vigilant eye on you. This is a world where choosing friends and trusting your family can be a choice between life and death.

      Winston Smith lives alone and works in the Ministry of Truth rewriting the past. But he writes the real truth in his diary hidden away from the telescreen. When he falls in love with Julia, he becomes a danger to the Party and soon learns what it means to be different.

      This book speaks to us today more than ever.

      Robinson Crusoe

      The story of Robinson Crusoe, a sailor and merchant, who lives as a castaway on a desert island for 28 years, is narrated in simple and contemporary language.

      Crusoe leaves England in search of adventure and fortune, but during one of his voyages he is shipwrecked on an island where he finds himself alone. Slowly, day by day, thanks to his ability and intelligence, he re-builds a little “English” world with a house, tamed animals, fields...

      Robinson remains by himself for many years, until one day, during his exploration of the island, he meets Friday: first his servant, then his friend, with whom he will spend his last years on the island.

      Robinson Crusoe, written in the 18th century, and a best seller at the time, is still a beautiful classic for everyone.
