Penguin Modern Classics: Animal Farm

A rebel classic that still shouts loud. All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others… When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master and take over the farm, they think it’s the start of a new life of freedom and equality. But the cunning pigs Napoleon and Snowball have other ideas: ideas that put them squarely in charge. Soon a ruthless élite, masterminded by the pigs, takes control of the farm. It seems the other animals are not as equal as they thought. Now they are hopelessly trapped, as a new age of tyranny takes hold…

  • George Orwell’s chilling fable of tyranny and power
