Four legs, good. Two legs, bad.
I have read a book so expertly alluded to a taboo subject. George Orwell's Animal Farm is a blatant outcry of communism in Russia.
The character Boxer the Horse touches one's heart as much as any human character.
The story gives you a great insight to a historical event without the boredom glued to history class. The animals bring a livlihood to the book.
If you delve into the story of Animal Farm, you can find a Leo trotsky, a Vladmir Lenin, a Joseph Stalin.
I recommend the book with highest regards with a, "Job well done" to George Orwell.
