Rated 4 out of 5 by from Complex This was a very interesting book. As I read it I felt like Toad was a ‘Prodigal Son’, who came back only far enough to receive acceptance, then returned to his bad habits till he was in trouble again. It reminded me much of myself, playing at being Christian before really giving Christ all areas of my life. Like Toad I would repent, but then not really change. Rat was wise and resourceful, Mole was tender and caring and awe-full like a child yet also very wise. Badger is like a wise mature old mentor or guide, sent to give direction, and lead one to find one’s own purpose in life. Yet the mix of Animal and Human society just did not make sense to me. It felt like a badly planned Narnia novel. It did not explain how the animal and human worlds came to interact and share a language or culture. But over all it was a fun read even if dry in some spots. (First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
