Audible Editor Reviews

Cassandra Campbell proves a lovely, lively performer in this engaging audiobook about the wonderful world of animals, and their simultaneously foreign and familiar internal lives.

Written by beloved poet and philosopher Vicki Hearne, who in her lifetime worked jobs from animal trainer all the way to Yale professor, Animal Happiness: A Moving Exploration of Animals and Their Emotions - from Cats and Dogs to Orangutans and Tortoises is an eloquent, elegant treatise on the role of animals in our lives and lore. Campbell’s soft, empathetic voice provides the perfect delivery of Hearne’s moving anecdotes about the deep love and reliance which humans feel for their dogs, cats, fish, and rats, and every other strange and wonderful creature in between.
