Animal Farm is a novel based on the Russian Revolution. This story contains talking animals which take the place of some of the Russian leaders such as Lenin, Trotsky, Czar Nicholas II, Marx and Stalin. These leaders were put into a novel disguised as animals and theses animals took over the farm which represented Russia itself.

Written in 1945, so relevant today. Through simple story telling, George Orwell cleverly crafts this brilliant story about mankind. This is a satire about power, absolute power and corruption. A revolution that went wrong. Terribly wrong. "Human nature and diversity prevent people from being equal and equally happy." This inequality prevents a balance in nature.

Giving the opportunity to create a utopia, first all are comrades, all are equal. Then the stronger become leaders, then dictators, and

I thought that this book wasn't quite a book that fit my reading style, I didn't like this book from the start. Overall this book was a political metaphor about the government and about the changing of society. This book shows that society always goes back to the way it was. Society won't change, it doesn't matter what rules are put in place because they will always find a way to go back to fit the needs of the government and people's needs.

I thought that this book was OK. I thought that this book was also kind of boring because the pigs cant really talk and that would never be the case in a real farm. Also i did not like some parts in the book because i felt like it just shouldn't of been in the book, for example "Boxer." Over all I thought that this book was OK in some spots but not in others.

I was required to read this book for school. It is a cool book, so I recommend you read it too. I found it enjoyable from the first page to the last. I was hooked. It gave me an interesting take on how history can be reenacted in the most imaginative ways. If you haven't had the chance to check it out, make sure you add this to your reading list. :D

The book was ok. I wish it would have been with humans though, cause then I would have under stood it better. I liked the fact that it brought out a lot of things that really did happen in real life. I really like books like that.

I thought it was interisting how they used animals to symbolise what happened in the soviet also was a good book and was interisting.
