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.
