George Orwell

Animal Farm

A classic allegorical novel by Orwell. I guess it’s sort of political satire which follows the story of farm animals who induce an uprising against their human farmer. Then a few things happen here and there, but in the end the state of the farm ends up in just as bad or arguably worse state than it was in previously. The events are essentially meant to reflect the Russian Revolution of 1917 and into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union.

I quite enjoyed this book. It’s an easy and quick read with a cohesive story which is written very well. I’d recommend it if you’re looking for an introduction into Orwell. It’s very highly regarded as you probably already know, so yeah take some time and read a classic.
