Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, however, the rebellion is betrayed and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon.
The lessons of Orwell's farm animals are sobering and depressing. What a fantastic pair of books. I personally preferred Animal Farm - the wit that Orwell writes with had me laughing out loud. Watching the machinations of a few so solidly influence the opinions of the masses bring to light parallels not only to the Russian revolution as Orwell intended, but to current political and social strife in America and Britain today. Even if you are not interested in current affairs, the story itself is engaging and emotional.

Alone among the animals on the farm he never laughed. If asked why, he would say that he saw nothing to laugh at.
