About book - I bought this book at a good cost ( nice discount ), so it's understandable that book is from old stock with yellow pages. Though there were some typo mistakes also, but okay. Never mind. About story - firstly I would like to mention that the author is really , really smart, as he presented the idea of mingling up the politics with the animal world, which is awesome !! I am so impressed and excited about the concept. In the beginning when the animals were trying to achieve freedom, story makes you feel surprised and happy , since it contains a lot of unimaginable things and good humour. As we move ahead story becomes a little monotonous , and also gives you some saddy parts. Some moments were so damn tragic where you feel shocked and even want to cry ( as happened to me about the boxer's incident , I actually felt sad even after 2-3 days of reading ... Anyway , it was just a story ). Then comes the end where I feel like unfinished yet, I wanted to read more , something good, but nothing was there. Actually it left me with the craving ... a craving that is not going to be fulfilled, .. never.. Overall it is a good political drama, not only interesting but also very easy to understand even by a child. So I would suggest all the teenagers who love reading and want to understand basics of politics , must go through this one. It is very well narrated, and extremely amazing !! A good experience for all age groups.
