By George Orwell

Penguin, Melbourne, 2008. Reprint. Softcover. Very Good. 95 pages. Covers have light creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine is uncreased. Pages are lightly tanned. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.' Drunken Mr Jones of Manor Farm has neglected his livestock for too long. In a burst of insurgent fervour they rise up and he is deposed, with the pigs taking charge of the newly named Animal Farm. Everything runs smoothly, productivity soars, and all animals are well-fed and happy. But the further away the memory of the revolution, the more distant seem its ideals - and when Boxer the workhorse is betrayed, the horrifying extent of the pigs' corruption is revealed. Orwell's 'fairy story', a scathing satire of Soviet communism, is as potent now as it was in 1945. Animal Farm is one of literature's most electrifying examinations of power and corruption.

Pages are reasonably tanned and lightly creased. In the small rural town of Kiona, Rebecca Toyer and Zach Kincaid come from very different sides of the track. When Zach's wealthy mother goes missing, Rebecca - the truckie's daughter - finds herself the centre of attention and an important piece of the puzzle. Both teenagers become caught up in, and drawn deeper into, a tangled and dangerous situation, and as they each come under greater scrutiny, neither has ever felt more isolated.

World Without End

By Ken Follett

Macmillan, Great Britain, 2007. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 1111 pages. Edges of boards have moderate wear. Dust jacket has light creasing. Edges of dust jacket have moderate bumping and minor chips and/or tears. Page edges are reasonably browned and mildly foxed. Eighteen years after Pillars of the Earth weighed in with almost 1,000 pages of juicy historical fiction about the construction of a 12th-century cathedral in Kingsbridge, England, bestseller Follett returns to 14th-century Kingsbridge with an equally weighty tome that deftly braids the fate of several of the offspring of Pillars' families with such momentous events of the era as the Black Death and the wars with France. Four children, who will become a peasant's wife, a knight, a builder and a nun, share a traumatic experience that will affect each of them differently as their lives play out from 1327 to 1361. Follett studs the narrative with gems of unexpected information such as the English nobility's multilingual training and the builder's technique for carrying heavy, awkward objects. While the novel lacks the thematic unity of Pillars, readers will be captivated by the four well-drawn central characters as they prove heroic, depraved, resourceful or mean. Quantity Available: 1.
