Animal Farm by George Orwell

Summary:  In this allegorically magnificent book, the political and economic views of socialism and communism are reviewed in a fun and exciting way. In this book, there is a feud that continuously grows between farmers and their unhappy farm animals. The farm animals start a rebellion because they wish to be free from their captors. With the leadership skills of Snowball and Napoleon, the herd of animals achieve an impossible feat. They rebel and rebel until they eventually start to become like the beings they once despised.
