I never thought i would do it. I have just finished reading the first 'FULL' novel in my entire life.

Animal Farm
, by George Orwell - An allegorical pointer at the totalitarian world that existed, then. Explicitly anti-totalitarian in its content, ratified by the fact that Orwell admitted that his works post 1935 have by and large been anti-totalitarian given his staunch leftist views. However, I would not go as far as suggest that it lampoons the Soviet way of living.

Next stop, '1984', Orwell. Knowing that somewhere in 1984 it was around this day that something happened.
