Animal Farm

by Orwell, George Year Published:
All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. A cautionary tale of the ease in which a totalitarian regime can replace a democracy, set on a farm amidst the animals. Disgusted by the way in which farmer Jones treats them, his animals plan a revolution based on the vision of Old Major, a vision in which the pain of animals is caused by the tyranny of man, a vision which says that their lot can be changed by following seven rules. Old Major’s vision is warped as Napoleon and his minions seize control of reality and change the seven rules to match their own needs.
