I don't like books with political connotations. So no surprise that this book did not blow me away. I read it because it is on one of the lists of the top 100 books of all time.
A farm is taken over by the animals residing there who drive away their human masters. The book talks about how the animals manage the farm by themselves and the different roles that different animals perform.
The story is written in a very simple and direct way. The writing is good. The political messages are a bit too much and thats why I didn't like it much.
