MaraMara by Ioan Slavici


My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It was well over 200 years ago now that Jeremy Bentham asked about animals, “The question is not, ‘Can they reason?’ nor ‘Can they talk?’ but ‘Can they suffer?’” It was a rhetorical question even then. Obviously animals can suffer; obviously animals feel pain.

Post image for How to Build Your Own Media Kit—Free Webinar Monday with Joan Stewart

Here’s a fact: most indie-published books sell poorly because they’re not seen by nearly enough people to be successful. It takes lots of people reading, enjoying, and recommending a book before it will start to get the attention it needs to grow a large audience.
