This book was ok, if you're in school and have a teacher to explain everything, the motives behind the animals, and the place where is fits and relates to in history. this book seemed to go on for quite sometime without much action. I would have preferred it to be more surface action instead of hidden turmoil. but sometimes you cant argue with authors that have a big place in history. he probably thought the book got his message across and therefore it would suffice for the public. try and find all the meanings behind this book and then it will become better to read.

If you like history feauturing Stalin and Hitler, this book is for you. This book is about them, but in fiction, with the main characters being animals. They are to represent Stalin anf Hitler, and rule over the rest of the animals. If you like that kind if thing, then this book is for you.

Not for the easy read type.

this is one of the well known classics. this book, by george orwell is a book that gived=s us the basic idea of power and how it can easily be misused.

in this book, the animals of manor farm have a rebellion agaisnt heir owner, mr jones. they win and mr jones is thrown out of manor farm, which the rename animal. as animal farm begins, all is well and every animal does its part but certain animals, the pigs, tend to think they are better off than the other animals and tend to take charge of everything. it all ends up going to the pigs head, one particular pig to be more specific, and animal farm is doubed one of crulest farms cause of how their workers, the other animals, are treated.

i would recommend this book to kids going into highschool. its very interesting and had to understand but you'll get the hang of it.

Hailed as a classic, Animal farm indeed hooks you from the first chapter on, but the feeling at the ending can only be properly described as creepy and eerie. George Orwell wrote the political satyr in relation to Joseph Stalin, the then dictator of Russia. Using animals on a farm, he stages a rebellion much like the overthrow of the royal family in Russia. He chooses to use pigs to portray Stalin and his henchmen, who rise to the top of the social pyramid. In the end, the pigs succumb to the corrupt lure of power and become dictators, ruling over all the other farm animals, much like Stalin did. The farm is even worse off than before, and the pigs are shown at the very end to have become human-like, symbolizing their greed for both wealth and power.

I read this book in English class when i was in 9th grade. It was a pretty good book. Im a fan of George Orwell. ( he also wrote 1984). But this is about a "farm" who gets tired of their owner, and decide to do something about it. THe pigs decide they should be the new leaders. Eventually, things get out of control and the other animals are feeling the same way as before. It is a great comparison to how government and politics is today. "Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others"
