The message of this book is definitely worthwhile for anyone who works with animals and especially those who have strong viewpoints on how humans should interact with them. The book is mostly philosophical with anecdotes peppered in. Some will find much of the book esoteric and difficult to follow as I did. The author seems to presume a fluency in philosophy and may leave the more casual reader scratching their head. This is exacerbated by the choppy diction of the narrator. 5 stars for the message, 2 stars for the delivery.
Vicki Hearne can be difficult to read but do the work and it stays with one. I have read this book several times and it never fails to amuse, comfort, challenge, and provoke thought. What we understand about language is assumed and Hearne begins to show us how to move from what we limit to what we can use about that form of ignorance. It is a book to reread and the first read is just a beginning. This narrator is adequate and not irritating. I am not sure if I would be happy about any narrator since I have a passion for this book.
