Que font les rennes après Noël ?

Vous aimez les animaux. Ce livre raconte leur histoire et la vôtre. L'histoire d'une enfant qui croit que le traîneau du père Noël apporte les cadeaux et qui sera forcée un jour de ne plut y croire. Il faut grandir, il faut s'affranchir. C'est très difficile. C'est 'même impossible. Au fond, vous êtes exactement comme les animaux, tous ces animaux que nous emprisonnons, que nous élevons, que nous protégeons, que nous mangeons. Vous aussi, vous êtes emprisonnée, élevée, éduquée, protégée. Et ni les animaux ni vous ne savez comment faire pour vous émanciper. Pourtant il faudra bien trouver un moyen.

Also an interesting theme, but how does it relat to the animal issues?

I said this a lot, there were just a few sections where it didn ’ t quite pull it off.I know a number of readers will hate it though.

One of the narrators is constant throughout the memoi, but this fourth is different in section, starting off as a wolf-keeper, then becoming a zoo-keeper, a researcher who does experiments involving animals, and ultimately a butcher.

Fearin that more of Rosenthal 's novels follow this one into translation.

Films also feature throughout her story – she is told early on ( and falsely) that her mother watched “ Rosemary ’ s Baby ” during her pregnancy which clouded her feelings for her newbor daughter; her identification with the gorilla in King Kong tells not only of her complex relationships with animals but also her exploration of her sexuality; as she approaches adulthood, “ Cat People ” speaks strongly to her of her ambivalences over fitting into to conventional society.The second, interleaved aspect is four interview/documentary style first party accounts by people working with nimals, with different ( interview) subject in each section ( albeit confusingly the subject of the econd section appears briefly in the last).

At times these links are to ( or even beyond) the point of being forced at times, but the overall effect works well and overall I think the book functions as an nusual and unique simultaneous examination of human society – both human-animal relationships and kinship relationships.

It produces a rather disconcerting effect a bit like watching a tennis match as your attention flicks rapidly from one narrative to another and back again and then back again and then…We have rewilding of wolves into a city ( the childhood years), the keeping of zoo animals ( the teenage years), animal research centres ( student life) and the keeping and slaughter of farm animals ( adult life) .All the way through, the two themes in each part bounce off one another as parallels and contradictions rise to the surface: “ Th human has a right to an identity, a bird to an identification.

Let 's just say that Rosenthal really must 've conducted interviews for the parts about animals.So why am I just describing what the ook is about and not giving my opinion as usual?
