Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
What Orwell's Animal Farm did for politics, Wangerin's Book of the Dun Cow does for religion. A previous reviewer commented on its place in the canon of animal myths, etc., but what he missed is the fact that this is a damn entertaining, don't-stop-turning-the-pages-until-the-fingers-are-blistered read filled with deeply flawed characters, believably-motivated action, and stunning language. Make sure you have the sequel/continuation The Book of Sorrows, handy. And, oddity of oddities, Wangerin has assisted in the creation of a musical theater piece based on The Book of the Dun Cow. It has yet to have a major production, but the workshop I saw indicated that his adapters are well on their way to helping this remarkable book reach a much wider audience

Von BEN
Format:Taschenbuch
A book I loathed to begin and then seemed to grow longer as I read caught ahold of a feeling which I connected with. I think it was the insults of a jaunty rooster to a cursed dog with an extremly large nose. The dog was seen as a nusance, a pest, but if not for the intiguing portrale of Mundo Cani Dog who complains he is 'marooned' to the master of the universe, the story would collapse into shambles. He is hero who is spat on. The bittersweet blessing God has betowed upon him enables the dog to save the world. And the speech of John Wesley Weasle and his tenacity in battle, along with his hatred for his brethren, the mad house of otters spins on a dousing of comedy. But with this sorrow comes, for the roosters wife, and their children in danger. Tick Tock and his army of ants resemble a miniature military, guarding over the chicks. And may I add, my favorite characters are the turkeys, who so comically say, "Galoot, galoot, Rutabega Rooster!" This book which I hated to start became the book I also hated to stop. It's a fantasticaly momentous twist on Good and Evil won me over and it became the best book I've ever read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Eloquent and Powerful Fable 3. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Despite its sometimes overtly Christian timbre, The Book of the Dun Cow is an elegantly moving and satisfying animal fable. Chauntecleer, the Rooster, is a complex protagonist who undertakes to rid his land of a heinous evil. Most of the characters are richly drawn, and the story is nicely paced. The most striking feature of the novel, however, is the language. From the sinister to the sublime, Wangerin paints a world and populates it with characters that are uniquely his own. While the novel fails to have the sharp bite of Animal Farm, the beauty and depth of Watership Down, or the power and staggering brilliance of Lord of the Rings (all comparisons from a quote on the jacket), it is nevertheless a fine novel in its own right.

Format:Taschenbuch
When I was 9 years old, my father read this book to me. It stayed with me. I am now 30 and after re-reading Watership Down last month I was reminded of this book, and of how good it was. Last weekend, I spent three days reading it to my new bride. We both cried. There are some people who chose to read this novel as some kind of radical religious parable. Those people are missing the point. It is a pure story of how everyone, everyday, fights against the urge to be the worst they could be; and how sometimes, with the right circumstance they become the best they can be. Without this hope, we are all alone and simply, ""marooned.''

3.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable reading, best for teenagers. 13. September 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a well-done fantasy. The book's blurb compares it to "Lord of the Rings" and "Watership Down," and with those comparisons I would generally agree. I wasn't that enthused about it because I prefer fantasies (and myths) with human characters instead of animals and it suffers by comparison with Orson Scott Card's "Worthing Chronicle," a human myth that I read immediately prior. The blurb also says "Dun Cow" should be of interest to all age groups. I think young adults would be most likely to appreciate its characters while not being taken aback by its fairly violent and scary parts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book 18. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is in now way preachy in it's language or it's symbolism. The few religios references are meant only to convey a sense of an innocent world. I find the comparison to "Animal Farm" totally ungrounded, as the moral of the story is incredibly clear and unsymbolic. Even an atheist can read this book and not be offended by the ONE chapter that mentions the word "God". But if the mere mention of the word is offensive to you, even in an innocent fable-like setting then go away. We don't want you here anyway.
