Ashamed to say that I haven't seen either of the adaptions mentioned. Based solely on the books I'd say 'Animal Farm'

That is exactly what will make this a hard choice. I think Animal Farm is the better novel. But 1984 is the better movie.

i dont blame you gitte...this is very difficult....

and ed...you are asking me to choose which child i like best...have you no mercy...

the clock struck thirteen in 1984 but some are more equal than others in animal farm...my two favorite books of all time...i still have my paperbacks from the 60's...

as far as which novel is better i couldn't choose but animal farm really is brilliant...and there's a great animated version with kelsey grammer you should check out...but with the version you have here, i'd have to go with 1984 the movie....

great dichotomy you set up with this one....
