Animal Farm – George Orwell

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. This seemingly simple fable tells the story of what happens when a group of oppressed farm animals rebel against the human farmer, Mr Jones, driving him away. Although all the animals start out as equal, soon the pigs – the laziest and brightest of the animals – take over, ruling as dictators with propaganda and brainwashing.

    I enjoyed the fact that the animals could communicate with each other and they can manage a farm alone. It was amazing how well they did without humans feeding them, cleaning them and ordering them. I always thought animals could speak to one of it’s own kind like a dog could speak to another dog but not a cat or any other animal, but this book made me wonder well why can’t they communicate with other animals? I also enjoyed the links it has to everyday politics.
