Having read the book “Animal Farm” I thought it was a good book with a lot of similarities that I could tie it in with reality. I also thought the author explained behavior very nicely. During this book lots of things happen that are much like reality, like tyrants, fake power, and lots of lying. To start off I will tell you about the main characters, and second what they will accomplish during their time in animal farm. I will also discuss what they want whether they're innocent or they lie to be in power.
This book is about many characters mostly animals. There are six main characters, these being first Old Major; an old pig that has won many contests and is favored by Jones. Second is Jones, the man who ran Manor Farm before the rebellion. Third is Snowball , Snowball is a good pig who was very good at speech and was highly respected being first leader in the rebellion. Fourth is the one and only Napoleon; a pig very much like Snowball. He help lead the rebellion in the beginning with Snowball but later disappears with some dogs. He comes back and chases out Snowball becoming the new leader of the rebellion and the farm. Fifth is Squealer; who is next to Napoleon as right hand man, he is the second best known compared to the other pigs. He is one of the better persuader and speakers. Sixth is the great horse Boxer; he is a horse who works harder than anyone on the whole farm. He has 2 quotes “ I will work harder” and “Napoleon is always right”. He adopted these quotes at the beginning of the rebellion and while the execution were happening. There are many more characters in this book but they are lower characters meaning they have short role as an animal.
Next I will discuss what the animals want .The first thing the animals wanted was to take over the farm because the farmer wasn't taking care of them. After they did this they had other plans of what they wanted. The main pig characters wanted to rule over the other animals and they get their ways by changing the commandments. Their commandments are their set of rules that they go by at the beginning of the rebellion. Then there's Jones the previous owner of the farm that was like any other farmer and just wanted to make a profit. But sadly last is the animals like Boxer who just want to live their lives wanting freedom and justice. In general the main group of animals want to build the windmill and work little too not at all. The pigs on the other hand want to take over the farm.
There are a few thing that keep the animals from getting what they want. The things that keep the animals from getting freedom is mainly Napoleon and the pigs. An example of this is the pigs keep changing the commandment and ruling over the animals . They do this by taking on human attributes like walking and drinking whisky. Another thing that keeps the animals from this is the humans, the humans are constantly trying to take over the farm.
How do the animals get what they want? First I will...
