I enjoyed the book. However, I stand by my first review, although the storyline was very neat, the characters lacked depth. For a story to be great for me, I really need the characters to come alive for me. I want to think about them even when I'm not reading the book. This just didn't happen for me. Overall an interesting read, but I feel my time would have been better spent reading something else.

25.0% "Ok, I've seen a few recommendations for this on the kindle page lately, so I'm giving it a try. I'm just not seeing it as a great book. Sorry. There's no depth to the characters for me. I know that they are squirrels and other animals, but look at "the plague dogs", or even "the wind in the willows". This is an ok story line, but it's just falling flat to me. I need great characters to bring it to life for me."
