From reading the first few pages, this book reminds me of Animal Farm by George Orwell with a dash of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare set somewhere in Japan in the future. It was interesting to see the different social classes, even in a fantasy world. I really enjoyed reading both sides of the characters their human side and animal side with emotions and the wild instinct.
I think a younger audience would love this since the writing is pretty flowy and goes by quickly. I don’t usually say this, but I would have loved to see some art with this story to create a fuller picture in my mind’s eye. I like the fact that the topic of testing on animals is brought up. It’s realistic to see how in today’s world are being seemed as objects and numbers no longer human.
I have to say that at times it felt too scientific which went right over my head, which is why it is essential to think what details to keep or cut not to overwhelm the reader. As a whole, I liked the writing, especially the part of the rhyme which takes a skilled writer to do. In the end, I gave it a rating of 3 stars out of 5.
I got a copy from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
