The animals at Manor Farm have had enough of Farmer Jones - he's drunk, reckless and cares little for their welfare. When the boar, Old Major, shares his revolutionary plans, the animals are convinced they can thrive on their own once the despot Jones is overthrown. But as the pigs vie for power, they begin to bear an uncanny resemblance to the tyrants they have overthrown...
George Orwell's renowned fable became an instant success on publication after the Second World War. The novel has continued to captivate readers of all ages, and has secured Orwell's position as one of the great writers of the twentieth century.
Truly a must read. Fundamentally written about communism and the spirit of revolution. But is very applicable for any changes of government and the implied promises by proponents of change that turns out unfulfilled once change did occur; manipulation of sentiments as well as changes of doctrine before power and post-power grab; and many more.
This book was truly phenomenal! This novel being both political and satirical, George Orwell proves knowingly why he was one of the best authors/writers.
What is fascinating about this classics novel is how we get to see the whole process in which information is twisted to alter the perception of reality and adjusted to their own advantage to the advantage of who is in charge right now.
How important it is to get informed and how ignorant is very dangerous for for a society.
It is very interesting and very well written and it's actually very witty as well.
The story had good progression, characters, and the story makes us feel like that we are in the environment. If you are interested in democracy, it is your book. The writer wrote about animals whose characteristics are almost identical to human. Explains us the real meaning of humanity and political events.
