Animal Farm written by George Orwell is an exceptional novel based on the experience of Communism in Russia. The characters are given false names instead of the names of the real people who started Communism. When the story starts off, Mr. Jones, the farm owner, is coming home being drunk and unconscious and immediately goes to sleep. Old Major, a boar, is holding a meeting on the Manor Farm for all animals. He informs all of them about a dream he had about the animals all living together in peace with no humans to ever control them. Old Major said that all the animals are born into slavery. None of the work they do is for themselves. Without the humans, they would be able to live their lives the way they want to. After the animals all discuss this suggestion, they decide to agree with Old Major. He then creates a list of principles to follow that no animal shall ever accept the ways and habits of man. The meeting ends with a song called "Beasts of England."
Three nights later, Old Major died a natural death. Three pigs with the names of Napoleon, Snowball, and Squealer take over Old Major's place and creates Animalism. Animalism is the main principles Old Major stated before dying. Each animal starts calling each other "Comrade" to state friendship and equality.

Soon the Rebellion became known as the Battle of the Cowshed. Mr. Jones appears back at the farm to take back what was rightfully his, but he was defeated once again. Towards the end of the summer, news about Animal Farm spread around the town. Mr. Pilkington and Mr. Frederick, the neighboring farm owners, become scared of the thought of seeing their own farm being taken over by their animals. Then these men marched towards Animal Farm. Snowball starts to create a defense and the humans are quickly defeated by the animals. During the battle lives were lost by sheep and a stable boy. This lead to another victory for the animals and Snowball and Boxer receive a first-class medal. Some animals saw that Mr. Jones dropped his gun, and then the animals agree that the gun will be shot into the air twice a years for their victories.
