What a brilliant concept - a book of short stories that champions abused animals for killing and maiming the humans who wronged them! Now that's something I would like to see happen in real life.

  • Mr.Death
Not for the delicate of sensibility. I can recommend this book for -- but only for -- readers who have a deep affinity for animals and an even deeper antipathy toward human beings who mistreat them. Best for readers who tend toward misanthropy, though the stories certainly do contain some decent human beings. The stories are all similar to each other in some crucial ways. What makes each story engaging and distinctive is the depth of development of the perspective of the animal (or occasionally the insect or the human being) at the heart of the story. Both because of how dark the stories are, and because of the similarities among them, I recommend not reading more than one story a day. One appreciates them more if one spaces them out a bit.

I wondered before I bought this book The Animal-Lover's Book of Beastly Murder whether all the five-star ratings were justified. After finishing, I clearly agree with the five-star ratings. To enjoy this book, first, you have to love animals, and secondly, you have to enjoy people getting their just desserts. Every story except the one about the cockroach has animal abuse as the central premise. I especially liked the stories Engine Horse and the Day of Reckoning. Engine Horse involves animal abuse and family treachery with the appropriate punishment. The Day of Reckoning involves the quest for making money at all costs to the point of losing your soul and the appropriate punishment. Some of the stories are quite sad, and none are joyful. I think the moral of the stories is to treat animals like you would want to be treated. I highly recommend this book especially the two stories I mentioned.

The stories are well written, but most of them focus on animal abuse and cruelty. I derived some enjoyment from the stories where the abused animals killed their abusers, but not much, and none of the stories made me smile or cheer. The story about the elephant made me want to cry it was so sad (the plight of elephants and how so many of them came to be "attractions" at private zoos and circuses is why I donate to The Elephant Sanctuary in Hollenwald Tennessee).

I LOVE animals and I know the author Patricia loved them too. This book will make animal lovers smile and people who don't love animals frown. Only 1 or 2 of the stories did I feel the animal was unjust. The pig and rat stories are the unjust stories, which is a shame bc I LOVE rats and pigs. Still good stories though. I even loved the roach story. Please read, I feel like people do not know about this book and they should! Recommend to others too.
  • Viashal
I found the book too depressing, especially when children were lured into evil! The animals were mistreated and in turn killed innocents such as the baby and the father.
  • Maveri
I love animals so I was curious about this book. It was great, kept me interested to the end. Very eerie too.
  • Androrim
very very good
let's hear it for our furry friends. People who hurt innocent animals deserve all the. Pain rright back.
