ANIMAL FARM 2 RUSSIAN SEQUEL
George Orwell’s satire about farm animals who revolt, is updated by Martin Knox in his novel Animals Farm 2, about farm animals on a tropical island, reminiscent of Cuba, under Soviet control. The farm has a series of totalitarian leaders, all pigs, contemporaries of their Soviet and Russian counterparts. After the Revolution, pigs exploit the other animals terribly.
On the island, the animals’ work mining coal is stopped by climate alarm. The animals study climate science and discover false appearances of a climate ‘spectacle’.
The story plays out superpower geopolitics from the Cold War, the Bay of Pigs invasion and Perestroika, up to modern times, with Russian empire rebuilding and capitalist profiteering by the major powers.
