"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." - George Orwell, Animal Farm

It's a short book called Animal Farm, by George Orwell. It's so short there is no excuse to not have read it. I've read it several times myself. Orwell's book is a satire of the rise of communism. You don't have to like/dislike or even know about communism to appreciate the book, but once you see the parallels the book goes from "very good" to "outstanding".

You are making a mistake if you do not try to read this book! Don't be fooled by the fact that animals are the main characters. This is a strong political satire with lots of suspense and a great story. Few books become legendary and widely quoted. This is one of them. Aren't you even a little curious about the story which contains one of the most famous quotes ever:
'All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.'?

haha.. I remember vaguely about "four legs good, two legs bad.."

Sounds similar to the "Xi You Ji"-Journey to the west to me. Coz the book is also political satire..

Anyway, since you highly recommended it, I'll give it a try... This is the book right? http://www.online-literature.com/orwell/animalfarm/
