Having got rid of their human masters, the animals of Manor Farm look forward to a life of freedom and plenty. But gradually a cunning, ruthless élite emerges and the other animals discover that they are not as equal as they thought.
Last read when I was at high school. Got so much more out of it this time. The story is so very clever and you get the point whilst reading about pigs and horses and chickens and sheep. This edition contains two essays by Orwell explaining why he wrote the book. Worth reading for those alone.
