This month, we'll be reading the critically acclaimed classic, Animal Farm by George Orwell. Though written in 1946, it transcends its publication date, being especially relevant not just for its many political aspects that seem to always suit the world somewhere, but for another reason.
Animal Farm is a superb story, set at Manor Farm. One night, all the animals gather together to listen to what the well-respected Middle White Board, Old Major, has to say. He tells the animals about his dreams of Animalism and how he wants a farm without Mr Jones, the mean and careless farmer. Old Major passes away three days later, fuelling the other Animal's desire to put Old Major's dream into reality. After careful planning and preparation, they literally kick out Mr Jones and his wife, and begin to run the farm. The pigs, especially Snowball and Napoleon, assume leadership, and begin thinking about how to improve the farm (renamed by the animals as Animal Farm).
This will be a very interesting book especially for our own current setting in Malaysia :)
