I've been trying to get through this book for months since I got an ebook version for free in exchange for a review but unfortunately I just don't see myself getting through it. I just don't think it was the book for me. The synopsis sounded interesting but reading it the writing style was just something that I would not usually pick up and it just was hard to read through for me. ( )

I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This is the first time I've been unable to finish a book I've agreed to review. The first section, life from the perspective of a cat, was interesting. Then that cat escaped his caregivers, found the community of free animals and the politics began. Oy vey, the politics.

You may get it into your head that this story is something like Animal Farm. It is not. That book is a story. This is a thinly veiled excuse to preach. There is little in the way of plot, but there is plenty of talking, which goes around in circles on the subjects of natural behavior, equality and managed to bore and depress me.

I do not recommend this book to anyone. ( )

Breed was a surprisingly easy read that touched on my level of our society by using anthropomorphic animals. Our protagonist is a cute and loveable cat. Exploring this pretty little kitty’s many transformations is one of the most enjoyable aspects of the book. The subtext of the book shines through strong and I quickly could see that while this book was entertaining, it also had a political agenda. With chapters that have titles that are actually quotes of famous peoples from history like Nietzsche, Goerring, and Tolstoy you get drawn into the story hoping to see how each quote shall manifest in the chapter. I was particularly interested in the chapter, “Nietzsche was stupid and abnormal – Leo Tolstoy.” Reading the first few paragraphs of the chapter made me shudder.

The book is quite good but very very dark. I do not advice reading this if you are faint of heart or if your political views are set in stone. The book made me think long and hard about the world around me and current events taking place around my planet. As a liberty minded individual, watching the kitty turn into a Stalin-like dictator, was not only frightening, it was provocative. If you desire to read something strange and yet compelling, then this may be the book for you. ( )
