Any good xenofiction? I've read Watership Down and Raptor Red, but most books told from the point of view of an animal tend to be young adult or even children's books. I have I Am a Cat in the mail if that counts, and I know several books have sections of an animal's POV, but are there any other quality xenofiction books?
There's obviously Plague Dogs, which is also by Adams, but I've never actually made it through that one while I still have the ability to reread Watership Down multiple times. I feel there's something off about the prose.
The Jewish Dog was great. It's about a dog born to a Jewish family in Germany of the 1930's and his way when the war begins and so on. His point of view and thoughts on the world are very amusing and interesting to read. I haven't read the English translation though, the original Hebrew mixed with Yiddish prose was beautiful.
Is Raptor Red actually worth reading? Dinosaurs are cool and i enjoyed Heresies but i always thought it looked pleb-tier...
Otherwise there is a book by a new zealand author in the vein of Watership but about Kea or Kaka birds which ha some sturdy reviews on the back cover at least... can't remember the name tho...

it's short and you can get it for free on the internet "for educational purposes"
Hello, this is the hunt for red october calling...
I just have one obvious question to ask.
Why doesn't Watership Down have anything to do with submarines?
Can we switch names?
Hello, maybe you could read "City" by Clifford D. Simak. It's a fiction about dogs... quite much anthropomorphized, but still pleasant I think !
Though, wouldn't it be hard to really find a fictional book really being in such or such animal point of view? I mean, these stories are made to please you with your cultural background, so there are chances they don't really present you animals in their ecological world? You know, living extraordinary things (from a human point of view)
Call of the Wild
Also, in a similar vein, I read a book set in a wolf's perspective written in the late nineteenth century. It was popular fiction. The wolf's name started with K. It was mostly about his interactions in the wild, little or no human characters. The copy I read was a first (maybe only) edition in my grandfather's library, and someone in my family stole his old books to sell after he died. If anyone knows what the hell I'm talking about, I've searched every once and a while and can never find it.
