I recently read Animal Farm as summer reading. I personally did not care for the book all that much (probably because I was forced to read it; I'm sure I would have liked it had I read it on my own!) but I thought the message and the allegorical relationships were excellent. At first I thought, "Oh, this is so stupid" but then I found out about all the symbolism and how it pertains to Communism and discovered it to be much more than meets the eye. If you liked this book, try Anthem by Ayn Rand (if you haven't read it already!) Oh, and I had to write an essay about a common theme in Animal Farm and a movie of choice and I did the Fellowship of the Ring -- it was all about the inevitable corruption brought about by power (the One Ring). Go me!
