THE HOUNDS AND THE FURY
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
While the animals in this novel are captivating -- especially when they communicate with one another -- the humans are unfortunately less interesting, and as a result the book suffers. Brown is obviously a knowledgeable hunter, but there's too much inside information here for the average reader to absorb or understand, even with the included information on the characters. This steep learning curve, combined with a plot that only comes to life when the animals (especially her dogs) are front and center, makes for an uninteresting read.
