    Emotion Capturing !

    Having first read 'Book of the Dun Cow' as a high school freshman in 1982 I have found myself rereading it every two to three years. Chauntacleer, John Wesley Weasel, and the other characters are the center of an unforgettable, emotional, adventure that provides good vs.evil,heroism,unconditional love, and extreme courage.

    A definite Masterpiece

    This book is a great buy for people of all ages. This book is very imaginative and has a great story-line. It's one of the best good verse evil books out there. I've read it three times and wouldn't mind reading it again. Though I havn't read the book of sorrows I'm sure it's just as good or even better than the first.

    Epic, mythic, brilliant!

    This is one of the best-written books I have ever had the pleasure to read. It contains heroism, joy, deep sorrow, and extraordinary good humor. It is one of the three or four books that I will actively tell people that they have to read. It is truly a marvellous work, and one that continues to grow on the reader. BTW...there is a sequel, The Book of Sorrows... It is also very good, but RARELY has a book been so well titled. If I had a ten-year-old child, I would happily read him The Book of the Dun Cow, but would not let him know that there was a sequel until he turned, oh, 30 or so.

    What an amazing story. I had never heard of it until searching

    What an amazing story. I had never heard of it until searching for some books to read next; this book was classed as an epic in the vein of Lord of the Rings. It certainly surpassed my expectations. I can not rate it highly enough, a wonderfully moving story, with high highs and low lows. Not just the story itself is excellent, but the way it is written is amazing: the hand of a master craftsman.

    Great Book!

    A story that proves that some people should write and that some books just need to be read. Top 5 of my favorites; all time. Approachable from many ages and stages of life; brings just enough "uncomfortable" topic/plot moves that it makes it draw and repel at the same time... you can put it down, want to put it down... think about it, and later... see this book sitting there & want to try some more.
