George Orwell's novel Animal Farm does an excellent job of drawing
parallels from the situation leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917.
Animal Farm is a satire that uses its characters to symbolize leaders of
the Russian Revolution. The animals of "Manor Farm", the setting of this
novel, which symbolizes Russia, overthrow their human master after years of
mistreatment. Led by the pigs, the farm animals continue to do their work,
only with more pride,
showed first 75 words of 792 total
showed last 75 words of 792 total
without any prior knowledge to the situation in Russia. However the added
element does wonders for this novel. Orwell is a genius and he has
cleverly hidden the satire in such an excellent way, that everything fits
into the picture like a jigsaw puzzle. I give this book five stars. This
rating is given for many reasons. It is a very easy read and quite
enjoyable to many levels of education.
