When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control.

i judge my book on story, style and the setting as a whole. This book ticks all those boxes. The story itself, though mimicked from real life, is transferred into the book superbly, with a very easy to follow story, not to discredit it due to simplicity. If anything, its beauty is in its simplicity as with the style of writing. It is clear cut and has little description. But this works to its benefit. It makes the book very fluid and therefore I rate its style of writing higher in this book of Orwell's over the style of writing in 1984. The setting and the whole idea of the book is superb also. It is a clear message to that of the USSR at the time, though not a message against rebellion. Do not be confused by this, I feel that Orwell's message is that he agrees with Old Major, not that he disagrees with the idea as a whole. Napoleon would have been Orwell's enemy were he in the book, since Napoleon merely recreated the problem that the book started with. The rebellion didn't change anything - that is Orwell's point as I see it

This book is great I read it in two days because I just couldn't put it down. This book is most suitable for anyone you is intrested in political ideals of soviet russia. Gives a great personnel opinion of one of the most famous authors of the 20th century.

Ok i knew this topic wasn't going to be normal everyday life but I found it a bit disturbing, not thoroughly enjoyable and a little bit dull.
