The world has gone to the animals, or at least a small portion of it. Manor Farm–excuse me–Animal Farm has been taken over by the animals from their evil masters, the humans, because the best way to talk about the human condition is to not actually talk about humans. Animal Farm by George Orwell is a masterpiece when talking about power dynamics, because all animals are equal, but some are more equal.
I think is is a wonderful piece on talking about how power corrupts. I wouldn’t say that it advocates for any particular point of view, even though I believe that many people may say that it does. I mean, I now know where calling people sheep comes from. It is really hard to describe this book without giving important plot points way, but a feel that this needs to be experienced first hand rather than from a summary somewhere. It’s a quick read, so don’t worry. Definitely take time out of your way to pick up this book.
