All Animals Are Equal
But Some Animals Are More Equal
This story takes place on a farm in England. The animals of Manor Farm work too hard for the farmer Mr. Jones and they do not get much back in return for all of their work.
A wise pig named Old Major calls the animals together to give them a speech and to tell them about his dream. That is the start of the revolution. The animals decide that they will have better lives if they run the farm by themselves. They chase the humans away and write their own rules for their new farm: Animal Farm. They learn how to do everything by themselves. They even learn some human skills too like reading and writing.
But, will life on Animal Farm really be better than it was on Manor Farm? Will the animals really work less and have more? Will they really have more freedom? Or will things be worse than before?
