There is nothing, and I mean nothing, in Orwell’s book that can be considered kid-friendly for even a second. At no point is there any mention of loving and caring for animals, or anyone else for that matter! Basically, it’s the kind of book that sends shivers down the spines of many a grown-up. But Shilpa Shetty seems to think that kids would learn a lot from it.
