This book has an unfair reputation as being, "just another novel on spirituality." It is, but no more so than The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, or Watership Down. At its core it's a wonder inspiring fantasy, and a mighty fine read.

Excellent Fantasy/Adventure/Spiritual book. "Belongs on the shelf with Animal Farm, Watership Down, and The Lord of the Rings." (L.A. Times) Beautifully written and conceived and each time you read it, you'll get something else out of it. Fantastical story set in the times when animals could talk and were the innocent protectors of the world in which the author explores the battle between good and evil. The story continues in the follow-up called "The Book of Sorrows."

Sorry, but I'm just not into fantasy with a heavy allegorical overlay.
