Without leaving a verbose review, all I can say is that this was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Wish I could read the others.

I read Science Fiction like sex addicts read/watch porn; but this is the first time I've ever written a review, but I just had to. This is such an engrossing and entertaining tale, and I thought I would be put off by the anthromorphing of cats and dogs as just too cutesy or too humanized, although they are very anthromorphed and humanized the feline and canine elements are still there in a perfect mix and with the explanation that they are two of the species "uplifted" by a now departed humanity one sees how they've adopted the niche left by departed and become human like. But it's not about being estraz humans but how two "people" from separate species live and love and eventually with the help of science change the world. A beautiful story from an unconventional angle.

Review by: Janet Schmidt on May 19, 2014 :
Whether you read this as a straightforward story about a cat and a dog, an allegory for the world we live in now, or simply a story of love, longing, and persistence, you will find this to be a well-written, thoughtful, at times very funny, and at times gut-wrenching story that takes you places you did not expect to go. I cannot recommend it too highly.
