The Plague Dogs

Postby Abner » Mon Dec 18, 2006 8:39 pm

I don't know why, but I glanced over at my library of books, and choose to recommend this book.

I first read it when I was browsing around at a thrift store as a child. One could buy great books for almost nothing. And believe me, I did! I read "The Plauge Dogs", and it moved me beyond words. I could not believe the insolence of man!

I hope you enjoy this book, and I would appreciate your comments,

Respectfully,


Abner

The book as listed on Amazon

I have to say Abner, it sounds kind of depressing!

Quite true. It is depressing. However, I believe it is a good read. Why? Because it gives man perhaps a brief glimpse into the "animals" go through. I find this quite ironic, since I belive the true definition of man is a human primate! But I do not wish to argue this point.

Suffice it to say, is it depressing, yes! Is it eye opening, I hope so!

Abner

thank you for your comments.

Hi Abner - sorry to pick nits but, for the sake of others, the author is Richard Adams (who also wrote Watership Downs). In any case, did you know that it was made into a movie?

In the words of the immortal Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller fame) on their expose about PETA:

"I would personally kill EVERY chimp on earth with my bare hands if it would save ONE homeless junkie from dying of AIDS".

The amount of medical testing testing we've done on chimps should give them a pass. They've saved more lives than any junkie. Oh yeah, and Penn Jillete is a Nazi.

Of course, this begs the question, "Who gives a damn about Penn Jillette and whatever made him think that his opinion counts for more than anyone elses?"

Well, for one he is really smart. And realistic. And he loves to reveal fraud, idiocy, and stupidity in our culture. Those are pretty good criteria in my book....

Okay, but his radio show sucks.

Thanks for the heads up on the Adam's book, Abner, I'll check it out. Watership Down is one of the best, most moving books that I've read. I have great hope for this one as well.
