This is a fantastic book and I can't believe I waited so long to read it. The suspense really pulled me in and kept me up at night reading, but the most poignant moments for me were the hard choices characters are forced to make. Yes, I'm talking about rabbits, but Hazel's character is so layered and richly drawn you forget the whole non-human thing. We're beyond Animal Farm here -- this story is an epic. Expect to shed a tear on the last page - partly because the book's over, but mostly because of the peacefulness and beauty of the final scene. This stuff will stick with you. Highly recommended.
