'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.'
Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Wellington leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organized to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges...

A literary classic with keen allegories towards the rise of the Russian Revolution; Animal Farm is a very important book for its themes and was very controversial at the time since it criticised the Russian soviets rise to power and how they were twisting the foundations of the communism they worked to achieve. - Joshua (QBD)
