Worst ending in the history of books. Don't read it unless you have to.

With an extraordinarily short page count, hardly reaching a hundred pages, George Orwell was able to write one of the most enduring satires of all time. Written to resemble fairy tales of old, this short but sweet tale of a group of farm animals rebelling against there two-legged masters only to fall prey to the same vices is captivating from start to finish.

This is a book I would recommend to ANY and ALL who even have a small interest in reading. Animal farm has earned its place among the biggest classics of the medium.

All Animals are equal, but some more then others

Animal Farm is a good reflection upon what makes and unmakes revolutions, especially how twisted the mind can become with power. It does a great job at underlying how propaganda works, and I like the idea of using animals to depict themes that are in turns very human (class segregation, etc). Ironically, I didn't find it that revolutionary, it was great at doing what it wanted to do, but didn't exactly leave a mark on me as much as others books might have. I would have to add that it's a very funny read, which took me by surprise and made it into a quick&enjoyable read.
