Not quite what I expected - but still okay.
on 13 April 2015
Well, this was not quite the book/read I was expecting...
The story starts pretty tame, in that it's like many children's' books that you'd expect about animals that almost become human during the narrative, but there's a bit of a sinister side to the tale that should be noted for those unsuspecting readers!
I had not anticipated the story to involves, laboratories, pest control, and experiments etc., and so be warned if you believe that this is merely a tale about sweet little animals! The story is still good and I did enjoy it (though for a couple of chapters about the `plan' which were overlong and a bit boring)
I do enjoy books about animals, but I do like my stories to be written in such a way as to still believe they are `still' animals and not so human by character that you tend to forget that - which sadly happens frequently in this read... It's difficult getting the balance right I know - but some do manage it!
