Among Animals 2: The Lives of Animals and Humans in Contemporary Short Fiction by Sascha Morrell, JoeAnn Hart and John Yunker

I am afraid this book didn’t do anything for me. 

Among Animals 2 is a collection of stories about the varied relationships between humans and animals. 

Although the stories are basically well written many were left up in the air or didn’t resolve an issue. 

The potential reader should also be warned that some stories are quite upsetting which, as an animal lover, I found hard to read. Others are more light-hearted but overall these do not balance the more distressing ones.

Because of the quality of the writing craftsmanship I give Among Animals 2 three *
