Reviews of: Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul: Stories About Pets...
My wife and I bought this book because we love our animals. My wife has always been a huge fan of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series and we knew this one wouldn't let us down. We have a dog, a cat and a lizard and would have many more if we had the room. This book mostly had stories of cats and dogs, but a few different animals were included. The stories were very inspiring; they spoke about how animals help teach us heal us and brighten our days. Animals do all of those things and more for us. We have given this book to many of our animal-loving friends and they have found it just as enjoyable as we did. HIGHLY recommended!
What a truly heartwarming book. It is filled with lovely, inspirational stories about people and their pets. I have read other books in the Chicken Soup series and have always really enjoyed them. What a great book for anyone who truly understands and loves their pets.
I can't say that I particularly enjoyed this Chicken Soup book. I love animals; I have dogs and cats and rats. So I fully expected to love this book.
But... there's just something missing and I can't quite put my finger on what. I think it may be the inspiration that's in the other Chicken Soup books. There were too many stories in this one that made me cry, both for the people and for the animals. It's hard to feel inspired when there are tears dripping down your face, you know?
I suppose I'd recommend this to pet lovers with a harder heart than I have, although I don't think there are many out there. Instead, pick up a different Chicken Soup book to read, like one of the originals.
I'm a huge fan of all of the chicken soup series. I especially love this one, because I love animals a lot. I have 3 cats, and 4 ducks, and I live in an apartment! This is a truly great book, making use of every emotion you posses, sometimes more than one at a time! It's fully worth at least one read, if not several.
When my grandmother died, my mother gave me this book out of the collection of books left by my grandmother saying she thought I would enjoy it as much as grandma did. As an animal lover, she was right. I did not think much of the book until I started reading it. It made me laugh, cry, and feel anger. It shows the love that humans are capable of as well as the hate. It inspired me to keep on the track I am currently taking and to not look so cynically at the human world as I often do. There is good out there, we just do not always see or hear about it. This book, in a small way, changed part of my life. I would recommend it to every pet lover out there to read. The stories are great and they run the trail from every pet you can think of--although most are cats and dogs. Its a good read and its also set up in a series of short stories, so you do not have to read it all at once. I kept mine in the bathroom to read.
