They both can’t agree on anything at this point, the main points that they talk about are Snowball wants to build a windmill to produce energy and Napoleon wants to focus on food production, the animals are divided about which one they want to lead them.

...believe that the book would have been better.
I would compare the recent chapters I read to the political parties of today’s society. This is because the way that the author depicts Napoleon and Snowball as leaders and their different tactics of how they want to be “elected” by the other animals. Then Napoleon drives Snowball out and basically forced the animals to accept him as his leader. He is also starting to become greedy and taking advantage of his position.
I really am starting to like this book, this is because of the turns it is taking and it is allowing me to start forming ideas about what is going to happen in the future. I am really interested in politics so this is very appealing to me in the sense of the political world. I am able to relate the information to the political system that is in place today. I look forward to reading more of this book.
