    Fifteen Dogs Epub × Paperback fifteen kindle, dogs book, Fifteen Dogs MOBIA doggone clever and moving bookIf animals were granted human intelligence would they die happier or unhappier? That’s the intriguing question at the heart of André Alexis’s imaginative novel the most recent winner of Canada’s prestigious Giller PrizeThe gods Apollo and Hermes dressed like hipsters and drinking Sleemans are considering this one night at a Toronto bar Apollo says animals with human intelligence would die even unhappily than they would otherwise he’s willing to bet a year’s servitude on that Hermes agrees and says that if just one animal dies happy he’ll winSince they’re passing a veterinary clinic when discussing the wager they decide to bestow human consciousness on the 15 dogs left there overnight The remainder

    Fifteen Dogs Epub × Paperback fifteen kindle, dogs book, Fifteen Dogs MOBIIt felt like I was under a magical spell to read this novel about a pack of dogs who were granted the power of human speech and thought The gods Apollo and Hermes made a bet on whether the fifteen dogs would end up their lifes as happy or miserable creatures Having human thoughts and feelings proved to be mostly unfortunate if not dangerous and bewildering for the dogs Only a few dogs experienced friendships with humans and developed an appreciation of beauty The majority of the dogs preferred to violently oppose to it but realised at the same time that they could rationally made that decision which in itself was not really doggie like behaviourAllow me to quote a few poems of the poetical dog Prince who had the misfortune to realise that his
