#193 Read all TIME 100 novels
The book starts off with the animals overthrowing the farmer and overtaking the farm because the farmer was a piece of shit drunkard and was neglecting the animals. The farmer runs out of his farm and lets the animals take over.
From there the pigs decide that they are going to be the "intellect" of the farm and somehow convince the animals that they are more important then everyone else because they are somehow holding the farm together.
Then one pig afraid of another pig taking over runs the pig out of the farm making all the power fall into his little pig arms.
Now that the pig has all the power on the farm he brainwashes all the other animals into thinking that he is the "divine one" and "great leader" and that he MUST eat more, sleep more, and have more then the other animals to keep the farm together.
The book has a pretty disappointing ending, I was hoping for a crazy rebellion but that unfortunately didn't happen. Although I usually like morbid endings, this was too much for me. It might have been because animals were involved.
Oh and if you thought this book was pretty ridiculous, you should check out the movie they made after the book. That was ridiculous.
