I read this book when I was in school, but could not recall what I thought of it, although I do remember my brother loving this novel. I found that it was a rather slow moving novel that was kind of hard to get into. I think that animal lovers would enjoy the book a lot more than I did. The characters were really well done; they jumped off of every page. However the plot was shallow and was lacking that certain something that would have grabbed me and drawn me in. That being said, it was beautifully written and you can see the author’s skill on every page. Overall it was an okay book.
