by George Orwell
‘Animal Farm’ is one of Orwell’s most famous novels. The story of the oppressed animals who overthrow their masters only to end up in an even worse state of servitude has entertained millions of readers for over fifty years. Its universal appeal is obvious but tackling such a wide-ranging story in a short exam is a real challenge.
