Animal Farm by George Orwell is an allegorical novella that reflects the events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917. Using farm animals as the main characters, Orwell depicts a farm that is taken over by its overworked and mistreated animals.
An incredible book
This book is brilliantly written and an absolute classic. However while it clearly is meant to be describing the events prior, during and some after the Russian revolution it is also a very good metaphor for events happening now especially concerning American politics and policies.
Classic and simply brilliant.
