Animal farm by George Orwell was a book about the russian revolution hidden behind a child’s book.
Animal farm would have been a good book if I chose it myself, and if I was reading it for fun not for school work. This book was a neutral experience for me because it was for school work. The best moments in the book are when they chase Mr. Jones away. The part I hated was when Boxer got shot in the leg but it was cool when he keeped on working tell he couldn’t anymore, it also sucked when they sold him to the bone glue company to buy whiskey to get drunk.
The story starts with one night when all the animals meet in the farm to discuss a rebellion led by old major. This was called animalism which is communism. After old major dies two pigs take charge they were snowball and napoleon.
Then the revolution starts and they chase Jones and his men away. Manor farm was renamed to Animal farm after the revolution. The plot begins to thicken when napoleon has his dogs chase Snowball away to take power. He also gets the services of Squealer, he is a pig with the ability to persuade the other animals.he tells them that pigs are always moral and correct in their decisions.
Napoleon steals milk from the cows and apples for his fellow pigs.But before that happened Jones and his men tried to take the farm back. Snowball is the largest contributor to this fight. Snowball starts drawings about a windmill and napoleon was strongly against this idea. This is when there is a meeting and snowball gets chased off.”Napoleon announces that there will be no further debates” He states that the windmill was to be made.
Much of the next year is spent building the windmill. Boxer was an incredibly strong horse and he proves himself to be the MVA most valuable animal. Jones, meanwhile, forsakes the farm and moves to another part of the county. Contrary to the principles of Animalism, Napoleon hires a solicitor and begins trading with neighboring farms. Most of the characters were believable. My favorite character was snowball because he was the smartest and he was like old major but new and innovative. He was special because he was nice and he was like old major wich was my second favourite.
The author did a ok job on making the characters. The author was able to hold my interest. He managed this because he made it like the revolution. The best moments in the book are when they chase Mr. Jones away and when they fight men. I would have had snowball go back to the farm.
From reading this novel I learned about the history of russia. I gained some experience with writing essays. I also gained a little experience reading a little even though I already read allot.I would recommend it to my friends because it is a great book but it suced it had to be for school work. I would recommend this book because it was a great book describing the russian revolution. It also had some good parts that fit into the revolution.
The characters also fit in so well into the revolution.Yes you should keep using this book with your classes because it is great and it has lots of info right in the book. No I have no ideas for you to do with future classesThis book was good but it was school work.
