Week of Books, Day Five: Animal Farm

The final book I chose was Animal Farm by George Orwell.  It's an allegory (correct term?  Not sure. xD) to Communist Russia, and I could definitely tell that throughout the whole book.  The book was much shorter than I was expecting, and the ending was very abrupt, but my mom explained that Orwell wrote it that way because Communism had not yet ended when he wrote the book.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who feels they are intellectually mature enough to read it.
