Animal Farm, by George Orwell

First Line:  Mr. Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the hen-houses for the night, but was too drunk to remember to shut the pop-holes.

Last Line:  The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

    1. It's not Science Fiction at all. It's more of a Allegorical Novella or a Satire. I would even go so far as to say Animal Farm is Historical Fiction.

    2. It counts as science fiction because of talking animals and how they do human things. the book is historical though

  3. This is one of the greatest books ever written. Eric Blair was so far ahead of his time. You only have to look at the world today to see how right he was. Please read his other great works. A timeless classic written by a truly great English Man.
