Year 8

Animal Farm

Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges. . .

This is an amazing book by George Orwell. It follows the Russian Revolution but with everyone as animals. It might seem like it’s made up but when you read it you’re actually learning about history. My favorite character is Boxer because of his determination.

Rating: 4/5

  1. A fantastic book to read if you’re a child or an adult. The message is clear yet the narrative starts so innocently…almost like you’ve stepped inside the world of Dick King Smith then you realise…this becomes a nightmare world…a dystopia which causes so much unhappiness amongst the animals.

    Truly a brilliant story about dystopian worlds and poor leadership.
