... and the animals succeeded to free themselves from previous master Mr Jone
now the conquered farm called 'Animal Farm'....

Just like every revolution begins with: ideal in principle and for the good of all. Everyone has same dream of equality and welfare.

Somehow,distorsion happen here and there. History changed, hero become the filth, commandement changed solely without the people acknowledgement

The happyness post-revolution did not last for long. It was really suprising and sad to read what happen more and more to the farm under their leader - Napoleon. Massacre, betrayal, corruption, collusion is the face of Napoleon.
It is hard to tell the future of the farm < and some said the future is now, here - not tommorow> .. hiks! tambah prihatin..
---
Orwell did very well with his satire stories - next time will have to prepare big heart before read his other book.

I read the edition published by Peacock Classics, they include Orwell's preface to ANIMAL FARM. Must read!
