Read this novel is my final project. My lecturer told me to read it in a week and think about the story inside. At first, I thought it was like a children book about animal, such as Winnie The Pooh, etc. But in fact, it was totally different, it is one of the best literature work.

The story inside about a farm -I know, it has been told from the cover- and the animals inside. One day, the animals thought that they could not stand any longer under human control which was always forced them to work hard and forget to feed them. So, they did a rebellion against their owner, Mr. Jones. For instance, they won and they got the farm as their price. Just like other communities, they need a leader, so they chose two pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, as their leaders because they are the smartest among all. But then, Napoleon became the only leader, he did some tricks to kick out Snowball, just like human if they got rival and the rival is better than them.

Napoleon led the farm and the animals and he made Seven Commandments which controlled all the things in farm. But unfortunately, Napoleon did not lead the farm to create welfare for others, but only for him and his fellows. He did some corruptions and got the money from what the others have done to buy beer and to do what he wanted. He also did some lies to attract the others and to get their trust.

The writer, George Orwell, is a very smart person. He captured human habit and put it in his book as animals. In my opinion, he tried to tell people about their behaviour which is quite similar with animal in this book; lying, doing corruption, believing easily, and bla bla bla. Too many human bad characteristics we could catch in this book. Not surprisingly, this book became one of the most famous book in the world and must have been read by almost all the literature enthusiasts. The story inside is really easy to understand with interesting way of storytelling.

The best part of the story inside is the ending, where the writer wrote:
“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which”.
