Book Review : Animal Farm

Identity
Title                                     : Animal Farm
Author                                 : George Orwell
Original Language                : English
Translator                             : Bakdi Soemanto
Publisher                              : Bentang Pustaka (Indonesian ver.)
Publication Year                   : 17 August 1945  / 2016 (Indonesian ver.)

Plot
Old Major, the old boar on the Manor Farm, summons the animals on the farm together for a meeting, during which he refers to humans as "enemies" and teaches the animals a revolutionary song called "Beasts of England". When Major dies, two young pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, assume command and consider it a duty to prepare for the Rebellion. The animals revolt and drive the drunken and irresponsible farmer Mr. Jones from the farm, renaming it "Animal Farm". They adopt the Seven Commandments of Animalism, the most important of which is, "All animals are equal.”
Napoleon and Snowball vie for pre-eminence. When Snowball announces his plans to modernize the farm by building a windmill, Napoleon has his dogs chase Snowball away and declares himself leader.
Napoleon enacts changes to the governance structure of the farm, replacing meetings with a committee of pigs who will run the farm. Once Snowball becomes a scapegoat, Napoleon begins to purge the farm with his dogs, killing animals he accuses of consorting with his old rival.
Mr Frederick, one of the neighbouring farmers, attacks the farm, using blasting powder to blow up the restored windmill. Though the animals win the battle, they do so at great cost, as many, including Boxer the workhorse, are wounded.
Years pass, and the windmill is rebuilt along with construction of another windmill, which makes the farm a good amount of income. The pigs start to resemble humans, as they walk upright, carry whips, and wear clothes. The Seven Commandments are abridged to a single phrase: "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others". Napoleon holds a dinner party for the pigs and local farmers, with whom he celebrates a new alliance. He abolishes the practice of the revolutionary traditions and restores the name "The Manor Farm". As the animals look from pigs to humans, they realise they can no longer distinguish between the two.

My Review
This book is one of the books by Orwell that attracts lot of readers' interest.
This fable type novel tells of a group of animals on a Manor Farm that feel that they were exploited by humans. Led by two pigs, they managed to rebellion by attacking the rancher. The animals on the farm are now living independently. Initially, farm activities were going well, but then two pigs that became the leaders when the rebellion began to fight for power and get rid of each other. Eventually the farm atmosphere was the same as when there was a human --even worse-- under a pig's dictatorship.
This novel is a political or political allegory novel based on the Russian revolution of 1917. The language used by the author on this novel is understandable, although there are some words that are unfamiliar to me in Indonesian version. The storyline feels flowing from chapter to chapter. "Animal Farm" has only 109 pages, so it doesn't take long time to finish it. The implicit message of this novel is that this revolution will ultimately be the same, as it was before the revolution (pigs who become cruel --even more cruel-- after the revolution as cruelly as humans before the revolution).
I recommend this book for you who likes politic, sarcasm, or even history to read this book.

See ya~

News Review

1. Manchester united has win six consecutive Premier league. but now,  they have to worry about is they are still passing and position issues and massive defensive issues to rectify in. The most important aspect now, for United, is just to consolidate their position in the top floor.

2. Liverpool's struggle continue and they are running out fix it. Their Sunday's performance is in stark contrast to their three consecutive victory at Old Trafford last season. It goes to show how far Liverpool has dropped off. Their big problems now is that without luis Suarez they have no threats, they really lost that fear factor. But, fortunately liverpool has doing some improve tactic to replace Luis.

3. Brendan Rogers has his work cut out from now. his defense that's broken at the moment. Although, when we look at the stats for two last season, Liverpool has exceeded 50 goals in the league which was 23 more than Chelsea. Rogers may doesn't have a job at the end of the season.

Movie Review : Sherlock : The Final Problem


"The Final Problem" is the third episode of the fourth series of the British television series Sherlock and the thirteenth episode overall. The episode was first broadcast on BBC One, PBS, Channel One on 15 January 2017.

Cast
Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes
Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson
Mark Gatiss as Mycroft Holmes
Una Stubbs as Mrs. Hudson
Rupert Graves as DI Lestrade
Louise Brealey as Molly Hooper
Amanda Abbington as Mary Watson

Plot
A girl wakes up on an aeroplane and finds everybody asleep. She picks a mobile phone up and hears Jim Moriarty announce "Welcome to the Final Problem".
Mycroft Holmes is at home watching a vintage film, which stops with the words "I'M BACK", when a clown with a sword intrudes. Mycroft tries to escape, but Sherlock appears and reveals that he and John Watson staged the attack to prove that his sister, Eurus, exists.
On Baker Street, Mycroft reveals that their parents sent Eurus to a mental institution after she burned their home down. An adult Mycroft then sent her to a maximum-security facility, Sherrinford. He dismisses the idea that she has escaped, but on the next day at Baker Street, when they were discussing Eurus, a quadcopter carrying an explosive flies into the flat. John, Sherlock, and Mycroft are forced to flee as the bomb detonates.
Later, John and Sherlock hijack a boat to travel to Sherrinford and carry a diversion plan out so that Sherlock can reach Eurus' cell. Mycroft and John corner the prison governor, discovering that Eurus has taken control of the prison by influencing anyone with whom she speaks. Meanwhile, Sherlock talks to Eurus, but she attacks him and knocks him unconscious. The guards lock Sherlock, John, Mycroft, and the governor together in a cell.
Mycroft reveals that five years ago, he granted Eurus five unsupervised minutes with Moriarty as a Christmas present. In the present day, Eurus leads the captives in a series of psychological ordeals, forcing Sherlock into sinister games to save lives while videos of Moriarty taunt him. Although Eurus prods Sherlock onward with the prospect of saving the girl on the aeroplane, he eventually stops the games by threatening to shoot himself when she orders him to shoot either John or Mycroft. Frustrated, Eurus uses tranquilliser darts on the three of them.
Sherlock wakes up near his family's old house. He speaks to the girl in the aeroplane to try to guide her in landing safely. John wakes up at the bottom of a well. When he finds human bones there, Sherlock realizes that what he thought was his dog Redbeard was in fact his best friend, Victor Trevor. Eurus threw him into the same well and left him for dead because she felt left out of Sherlock's attention as a child. Sherlock then deciphers the real meaning of the song that Eurus originally taunted him with when Redbeard went missing, which reveals that she wants him to find her. Sherlock discovers that the girl in the plane is actually Eurus's mental metaphor and that the game has been a cry for help. With Eurus' puzzle solved, Sherlock is able to send her back to Sherrinford after rescuing John.
Mycroft explains to his and Sherlock's parents, who had been told by Mycroft that Eurus was dead, that Eurus refuses to speak to people anymore, but Sherlock visits her and they play violin together, giving performances for their parents and Mycroft. While helping Sherlock repair his destroyed flat, John receives a video sent by Mary before she died, encouraging him to continue having adventures with Sherlock.

Review
This is Sherlock series’s final episode, so i suggest you to watch the previously episodes of Sherlock BBC. 
With his excellent trick, Sherlock was success to prove that he has a younger sister that was hide by Mycroft. Sherlock, Watson, and Mycroft must solve the puzzle that given by Eurus. The puzzle was so difficult, even Sherlock (that imagine was so genius by the author) was frustation to solve the puzzle. 
In this episode, the writer shows the Sherlock's "humanity". Take a look to the picture below.



In this scene Sherlock was so panic knowing John was in the bottom of a well. In pict (2) Sherlock hug his sister. We can see Sherlock's parents in this episode. They came to Sherrinford, after Mycroft explain about Eurus case. 

This movie will be a nice closing of Sherlock BBC series (otherwise there will be season 5). All of the mystery was cleared in this episode, like "are there just two holmes in this world?" or "who is the parents of the genius Sherlock?" even "the last Mary watson's message" were answered. But, at the end of the episode we is being curios with the scene where Sherloxk receive SMS from a woman that being fathomed as Irene Adler. 

So, is there will be Sherlock season 5? If yes, will this season explain the continuance about Sherlock love story with Irene Adler (the one and only woman admire by Sherlock!).

This movie is fit for you who likes detective or mystery. If you watch this movie, you must adapt with Sherlock's fast speaking style when he explain his deduction, also this will train your thinking speed XD. Happy watching~
