    The book is great. How they managed to make such a dreadful movie out of it is completely beyond me. :rolleyes:

    Today I received George Orwel's Animal Farm as a belated birthday present.

    I now have £30 of book vouchers and £10 on Amazon, so I might be getting a lot more books soon... if I ever find the will to leave my house... :eek:
