Animal Farm book summary
Animal Farm book tells a straightforward story of cattle shed animals. A farmer named Jones, owns and manages a big farm of animals. These animals live with suffering because Jones is a greedy and a drunken man. He always exploits them.
One night Old Major, who is an old boar gathers all animals to tell them his last night’s dream about the old song ‘Beasts of England’. In his dream he sees all animals are living together without any oppression of human beings. He teaches them to start a rebel movement against their master to gain this paradise. Everyone shows his keenness, but old boar dies after some days.
Now Napoleon and Snowball, the two younger pigs begin to lead their movement which they give the name Animal-ism. Their purpose is to build an ideal atmosphere only for animals. They formulate seven equitable principles for their community. Their most important commandment is “All animals are equal”. They also rename their farm as Animal Farm.
