A classic and educational standard, Animal Farm has been read and studied by millions. George Orwell, author of other classics like 1984, creates a masterful story about society and revolution from nothing more than barnyard animals. It’s the perfect title to help introduce students to witty satire, political allegories and history, while also providing them with a book they’ll enjoy reading for years to come.
It all begins with the dream of Old Major and his death shortly after. His dream of a world without humans sparks an idea in the head of three other pigs -- Napoleon, Snowball and Squealer. They even create a new philosophy called Animalism and are able to run the farmer Mr. Jones off the land. Life under this new way of thinking is fine at first, but things begin to unravel when Napoleon and Snowball no longer see eye-to-eye. Things really come to a head when Napoleon uses trained attack dogs to chase Snowball out of the farm. With Napoleon in full control and any sense of democracy gone, he becomes paranoid and impractical, pushing the other animals to their breaking point and even killing some. Things only become more dysfunctional when Napoleon suffers attacks and tricks from human farmers. And in the end, all the animals seem to appears less and less like their original selves.
A keen satire on the Russian Revolution and other points in history, Animal Farm is recommended for readers 14 years and older or with a high school reading level.
