    Animal Farm: A Fair Story is a satire of an ideological revolution corrupted by absolute power.

    Summary Of The Book

    The oppressed, mistreated animals of Manor Farm launch a revolution, driving out the human farmer, and begin to run the farm themselves. They create a code called Animalism, in which they outline seven main commandments, the principal of which is, all animals are equal and decide to live by this code.

    The idea for the revolution in Animal Farm: A Fair Story began when the old prize winning boar, Old Major, gathers the farm animals together and tells them of his dream of a place in which animal live in peace and harmony, free of the oppression of humans.

    When Old Major dies, two pigs, Napoleon and Snowball, decide to make the old pig’s dream a reality. They succeed with the help of the other animals in the farm. A period of peace and happiness follows.

    But, this period does not last. Snowball wants to educate all the animals and wants their participation in running the farm. Napoleon does not agree. When Snowball decides to build a windmill to generate electricity for the farm, and gives a speech about it, Napoleon puts his own plans into action.

    He has secretly trained a group of attack dogs, dogs that he took in when they were little puppies, ostensibly to ‘educate them’. He now uses them to chase off Snowball and assumes all the powers for himself and his supporters. The pigs now become a special, privileged class.

    With the help of a sidekick, Squealer, who acts as Napoleon’s mouthpiece and propagandist, Napoleon slowly manages to convince all the animals that everything he is doing is for their own good. Squealer is good at his job, and the animals in Animal Farm: A Fair Story believe him, despite their own appalling living conditions.

    Gradually, the code of Animalism is thrown aside, every rule broken. A new order emerges, but not the one that the old boar, Old Major, envisioned.

    About George Orwell

    Eric Arthur Blair, more widely known as George Orwell, was a British writer.

    Other books by George Orwell are 1984 Nineteen Eighty Four, Burmese Days, A Clergyman's Daughter, and Coming Up for Air.

    He wrote fiction and non-fiction. His writing expressed his distaste for despotism and totalitarian regimes, as well as his support for democratic socialism.

    George Orwell was born in 1903 in India. A year later, his mother Ida Blair moved back to England with her children. Orwell initially studied at a Catholic Convent, but later moved to a boarding school, Cyprian’s School. He went to Eton on a scholarship, but did not complete his studies. He joined the Imperial Police and was posted in Burma. He later returned to Europe, and lived in Paris and London, before finally settling down in England. His book, Down and Out in Paris and London, was published under the pen name of George Orwell. In 1945 came Animal Farm, which made him world famous, and his reputation as a great writer was sealed with the publication of Nineteen Eighty Four in 1949, shortly before his death.

    Good copy

    This is a review of the physical quality of the book rather than the reading matter presented in the book itself. A review of this book can be found anywhere online. But if you are planning to order this copy, and if you're a bibliophile like me, then you'd want to know about the physical quality of the book you are going to get your hands on.

    I bought the Animal Farm by the publisher Penguin. The one with the red cover and the pink silhouette of a pig with the line 'All animals are equal, ...

    MUST READ !!

    This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand the political system of his'/her's respective country especially democracy. Through the use of animals the author George Orwell, efficiently displays the corrupting influence of power. This book I believe helps the reader to gain a bird's eye view of the scenario of politics that prevails in his'/her's political system.
    It is a very interesting and amazing read for the readers. So go for it.

    STUPENDOUS BOOK

    A must read for every book lover . If you are interested in politics this book is your Bible . This allegorical and dystopian novel by Orwell reflects the events leading up to the Russian Revolution and is also a terrible satire on Stalinism . A brilliant satirical work blending satire and wit. Its both surprising and convincing how Stalin has been reduced to a pig (Napoleon) and his enemy Trotsky to yet another pig (Snowball).
    Time magazine chose the book as one of the 100 best English-lang...

    A great read.

    In a nutshell, 'awesome'. One of the must read this book before dying.
    Mr. Orwell has poured his hatred for politics in such a way that its entertaining and heart touching. Truly, the darkest fiction I have ever read.
    I might give 1000 stars but 5 is the limit.

    All classics are equal, but some are more equal than the others.

    Although the book becomes slightly meandering( for the lack of any better word) in the middle it manages to grip the reader.
    It is fantastic how this simply written book set in a hyper-realistic background with its larger -than-life characters stands as an apotheosis for all the kinds of revolutions one comes across.
    The climax of the book sums it all up beautifully.A must read.
    After all,"All classics are equal,but some are more equal than the others."

    Q:is there any summary or explanation in the last pages ( Chapter-Wise)
    A:No. There is no explanation in the last pages as the book is a satire. One has to observe the inner meaning by himself/herself. A short introduction (half summary) is given in the back of the book.
