really liked it
bookshelves: classic, satire, allegory

I must be the last person in the world, at least of my generation, to read this! But I'm glad that participating in games forces me to read books that I've been meaning to for a long time, particularly the classics.

I don't think anyone needs a synopsis of this famous work, so suffice it to say it was very readable, and the satire biting. I don't know enough to be able to expound on the allegorical details to communism, but I kind of wish we had taken this up in high school as it would have been a very interesting lesson. However, growing up in the Philippines, this was not required reading. I am glad I finally got around to reading it, but I'm also happy it was short - any longer and it would have become tedious.
