Publisher's Summary

Rita Mae Brown's first memory is the sound of a deep, rumbling purr. From the cat that slept in her cradle to the horses, hounds, cats, and chickens who live on her Virginia farm today, Brown has always been surrounded by animals. Listeners will meet Mickey, a long-haired tiger cat who joined Rita Mae on childhood exploits; Franklin, her grandmother's parrot with a wicked sense of humor; R.C., a courageous and devoted Doberman who was killed by a pack of coyotes; Baby Jesus, a tiger cat from New York City with sharp teeth to match his attitude; and, of course, her beloved tiger cat Sneaky Pie. Animal Magnetism is a celebration of these wonderful creatures and of their remarkable capacity to enrich our lives and our hearts.

    "Captivating"
    Where does Animal Magnetism rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Usually in the audiobook category I listen to more technical books that I can cover material faster than by reading, but this book is the exception. The story reminds me of why there are so many animals in my life and what they teach us as humans if we listen. Great book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There isn't one character in this book like a novel would read. It is how all the characters flow together to teach us about the world we live in... the birds know when storms will be coming better than technology, the horse teaches pure love, the dog is the guardian, more about showing how animals know the world than a character. But her mother does sound like a fun person to be raised by.


    Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The knowledge we lost with technology.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is such a great reminder of what technology has made us forget as humans sharing the Earth with species who may know more than us.
