Customer Reviews

Award Winning Book!!

I absolutely loved "An Animal Life"! It's won a bunch of awards including: ** Winner - 2014 Beverly Hills Book Awards ** Finalist - International Book Awards ** Finalist - 2014 Indie Excellence Awards ** Winner - 2014 eLit Book Awards ** Winner - 2014 IndieReader Discovery Awards **

And here are some critical Reviews:

1) "This book has everything you need-- it is smart, well written, bright, and features intelligent characters that have a knack for stirring up trouble, as well as a clear insight to the odd life veterinary students, professors, and staff lead... The unusual and downright hilarious antics the students get into ... makes you want to drop everything and apply to vet school... [An] ANIMAL LIFE is a wonderful book for those considering veterinary school to get a glimpse of what is coming, and still a great book for everyday readers..." — IndieReader

2) "...Fast-paced and humorous, this detailed account of a first year at vet school brims with cringe-worthy moments and rich descriptions. The witty, believable characters fumble through their relationships much as they muddle their way through their studies. Those interested in animals as well as people will find much to admire in this work. A zany and heartfelt account of life in veterinary school." — Kirkus Reviews

3) "It's a great read ... I've got shelves of books by veterinarians, [but with An Animal Life] you're able to get the personality behind them, and you're able to get into the stories. It's not so much about the medicine ... It's about the people themselves and I love that aspect of it. I also love that [the authors are] donating back to charity with this." — Pet World Insider

4) "When I was growing up, I wanted to be a vet ... Thanks to the wonderful descriptions you truly feel like you are one of the students ... I laughed more than anything with some of the situations and the characters of the book. It is so well written and delightful that I would recommend this one highly." — Readers' Favorite (5-Stars)
