      Mr. Jones is a mean drunk, who is abusive to his animals on Manor Farm. During one of Mr Jones’ alcohol driven blackouts, an older and wise pig by the name of Major, gathers all the farm animals in the barn to discuss their mistreatment at the hands of their owner.

      Empowered by Major’s speech the farms animals come together to devise a plan to overthrow Mr. Jones, led by two pigs named Snowball and Napoleon. Unfortunately, Major would not live to see his dream of being free from tyranny due to his unforeseen death. One night, Mr. Jones forgets to


      feed the animals which them the opportunity to uprise, chasing Mr. Jones and his family off the farm. Mr. Jones makes several attempts to reclaim his farm, but to no avail.

      In the beginning of their freedom, the animals organizes a small committee, led by the pigs, which created rules and plans that were later to be voted on–a democracy run by animals. However, Napoleon’s greed and desire for power would jeopardize everything Major stood for as well as what the other farm animals fought for.

      When I first read this book I didn’t know whether to be in shock or laugh, so I read again and I was still in shock. When I heard the title Animal Farm, I didn’t know what to make of it because farm animals are the main characters of this book, but in such a sophisticated way. They are smart, well spoken, and articulate–possessing the qualities of humans rather than animals.The book focuses on real life issues such as social and political issues, and government oppression.

      Mr. Jones represented the head of the government who abuses and mistreats the people under his rule–the farm animals. One animal’s will was strong enough to spark both change and outrage ...

      in the other animals, which resulted in Mr. Jones being overthrown. A theme which is very common in history throughout the world. However, what the animals quickly realized is how hard it would be to effectively create change while maintaining their core principles which caused them to revolt in the first place.

      Napoleon is great example of dictators in history because once he got a taste of power, he became addicted thus throwing out those who would be a threat to him such as Snowball. To make sure the animals feared him, Napoleon also carried out executions in front of

      the animals as an example of his power. He essentially became what he was fighting against.

      It wasn’t until I did some background research when I discovered George Orwell was involved in politics, and because of his experiences and what he had seen with socialism and government control that inspired him to write Animal Farm. I researched revolts, rebellions, and wars throughout the world, and discovered Animal Farm was right on target with history except animals were charge. It further led to ask myself the same question the author presents: is there really a difference between the tyranny of animals versus men?
