This book, except for the monetary denominations, could have been written today about the US and other countries with wildly distorted distance between rich and poor. Written with Orwell's usual skill.

I read the sample and fell in love. 1984 and Animal Farm are so different it really shows how diverse orwell is. Highly reccomended.
