It would have been very difficult to make this a bad book. You would have needed an extremely inept author. Denise Flaim is not an inept author. She's not an especially skilled one either, but she didn't have to be to make this a wonderful book. The story and the characters shine through the clumsy writing and low-level but persistent casual sexism. My only other caveat would be the remarkably shallow, one-sided and naive treatment of TNR given, but as that wasn't at all the point of the book, I'm not too upset.

Rescue Ink is a group that bills itself as taking an "in-your-face" approach to animal abuse. And, let's face it, there is something irresistibly appealing about a bunch of big, burly, tattooed, macho guys running around rescuing defenseless animals. You can't help but love them. This is an extremely interesting book, one that gives you hope in humanity and the whole world.

Quotes Brittany Liked

“I hated cats. I was a dog lover," Des says with a shrug. "What's the point of a cat? They're not affectionate. But that's because it's not my cat. I mean, your wife wouldn't jump on my lap. That's because she's your wife, not mine. Until you have your own cat, you really don't understand.”
