"No question now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. 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."
Animal Farm is a novella by George Orwell first published in 1946. It is a dystopian allegory, a mirror of the soviet union.
This book and Orwell's follow-up, 1984, were banned in the eastern block up until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989.
I really enjoyed this book.
As I was reading the book I found myself trying to match the book's characters with real historical figures.
Having some knowledge on the soviet revolution or communism really helps to fully comprehend it's story and impact.
A book that I would recommend to everyone.
