There's a lot of loose ends to be tied up here: what is the political statement that emerges from Major's dream? What was the pigs' major contribution to the Rebellion? What is the significance of the cockerel who marches in front of Napoleon? What is the significance of the change at the farm impact?

This book was mostly how animals took over the farm. The animals felt very offended that humans were giving them orders to obey. They were fed up of getting treated poorly and badly. At first, the animals were saying "four legs good, two legs bad." The animals wanted to take control over the farm and treat the fellow animals the right way. However, when the pigs did take over they messed up the whole society of the animals for the farm. Life for all the animals (except the pigs) is harsh. Eventually, the pigs begin walking on their hind legs and take on many other qualities of their former human oppressors. The Seven Commandments are reduced to a single law: "All Animals Are Equal / But Some Are More Equal Than Others." The animals ended up saying "two legs good, four legs bad."

So overall, reading this book was interesting because you would've never expected the perspective the animals would think about humans obeying them. My perspective for this book is that it is a classic, and that you would see the plot of this book playing out. You would also see how the farm is impacted by different leaders that are known as the two pigs, and that the story is based on the Russian Revolution during World War 2. On the other hand, the book also was very confusing and surprising during the plot.
