Animal farm is a classic fable, wherein a group of farm animals start a revolution, overthrowing their farmers. It is a simple book deciphering a rather complex ideology; utopianism. The book exhibits how easily an egalitarian society falls into the clutches of corruption, and makes you wonder if a utopia is a mere unachievable concept. A highly recommended book if you’re looking for a satirical take on modern historical events.
