PLOT SYNOPSIS

There is this farmer named Mr. Jones. He owns a farm with lots of animals. Mr. Jones tells his animals many stories and says stuff how the humans are on top but they don't give anything back to the environment. Three nights later he dies and the animals live on there own. They come up with seven commandments that they have to go by. All the animals try to even out the amount of work that they do each day to get food for all the animals on the farm.

Criticism: This is a really good book i liked it a lot. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes fantasy and animals. George Orwell did a fabulous job setting up the plot and the events that happen throughout the story. He is also very descriptive in his writing i no exactly what he is saying and it gives me an image in my head.

Quotations:
“Four legs good, two legs bad.” pg. 29

"Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself."
- George Orwell, Animal Farm, Ch. 1
