Read from October 26 to December 03, 2011

Great research into how "investors" (read: the CIA) funded and influenced the production of the Animal Farm cartoon in the 1950's. The research is really well done and this book is really unique. That said, if you aren't a major Orwell, animated film, or cold war aficionado, you will probably be bored with the details presented in about 50% of the book.
