Napoleon had commanded that once a week there should be held something called a Spontaneous Demonstration...
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
I look from man to animal and then man to animal and couldn't distinguish.
"The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."
Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure. On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility. No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?
"All animals are equal, but some are more equal then others"
"The creatures outside looked from man to pig, and from pig to man again, but already it was impossible to say which was which."

SummaryAdd a Summary
When I read through this book, I REALLY thought that Animal Farm was a tale about animals. But afterwards, I searched up this book and read that it was actually about Communism. The book begins with the animals rebelling to Men. They won the rebellion, kicked Men out, and started taking over their own farm. Later on, Snowball, a pig, organized the farm and declaimed himself as leader. The animals were happy they finally can work for just themselves. But meanwhile, Napoleon, another pig, started stirring things up into tyranny. He trained puppies that nearly killed Snowball, and he became the dictator. Every animal had to agree with Napoleon, or else they would be killed. At last, Animal Farm became a dictatorship of pigs, and that ends the story. I would say this book is a tough read and recommend this book to deeper readers. The author's style of language was often hilarious, but this book as a whole fetches greater interpretation of the message conveyed. One last note, this book isn't really about animals...
