Finnegan's Quest is a poetic, well-written story about a fox on a journey into the world to look for a guru. He stumbles on all sorts of 'critters' who mirror society and the relationships between the different ranks. I don't like to compare books, but this was a sort of 'Animal Farm' meets 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull.'
The phrasing is lyrical, the comparisons are original and refreshing. It's meant to be read and re-read. I can imagine a high school teacher using this book in an upper-level English class. It would be great as an audio book. My favorite scene was in the chicken coop.
