“Gripping. . . . A compelling tale of emotional force and high suspense.” — The Wall Street Journal
“Adams takes us to places where no author author has taken us.” — The Washington Post
“Engrossing. . . . Bears the abundant mark of sheer genius.” — The Plain Dealer
“Better and more powerful than Watership Down.” — Providence Journal
“Marvelous. . . . An excellent drama.” — Newsweek
“Excellent.” — New York Daily News
“Adams writes brilliantly about animals. . . . When these dogs are on the move, they compel us to follow, trotting along the narrative path on all the legs we have.” — Saturday Review
“The genuine and moving feeling for animals that dominated Watership Down emerges here in intense dramatic form. Adams engenders such compassion, such desperate, urgent sympathy for ‘the plague dogs,’ that the reader yearns for a happy ending.” — Publishers Weekly
