This is the second book (of two) from author Joy Ward that I’ll be reviewing. You can see my review on her first book “Haint” here.
Now I know you’re not ‘supposed to‘ pick favorites, but I’m not gonna lie, this book was my favorite of the two. I’m so glad I have a copy to give away to a lucky reader! Keep on scrolling for details on how to enter…
[Book intro] Joy co-authored this book with Missa Dixon. According to the introduction, Missa has an ability to hear the voices of our animal companions in her mind. She is able to translate their thoughts, feelings, and opinions to the rest of us. Missa is an animal communicator. ‘Interviews from the Ark’ is based off of Missa’s translations of various animals answers on how they view the world. They spoke with dogs, cats, horses, rats, birds, several exotics as well. Basically an entire menagerie of animal opinions are stuffed into this little book
[The details] I was honestly surprised by some of the responses I read in this book. After reading the introduction, I wasn’t sure what to expect next. Each animal who was interviewed has their own chapter. Each chapter ranges from 2-6 pages depending on how talkative that particular animal was when Missa communicated with them. It is easy to feel skeptical when you yourself do not have the same ability that Missa claims to have. As humans, when we don’t understand something, we tend to doubt or disbelieve it. But some of the responses in this book just might be enough to make a believer out of you….That’ll be for you to decide.
This isn’t my first encounter with the idea of animal communication though. Growing up, I used to watch Dr. Sonya Fitzpatrick’s show on Animal Planet and always believed she was communicating with the animals like she said she did. And then felt insanely jealous that I couldn’t do that. I know some people don’t believe in it, and it’s ok. You don’t have to. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, without fear of judgement. You’ll like this book either way.
[Final Thoughts] I think this is a great read for animal lovers world-wide. It’s a very eye-opening and inspiring book that helps bring our own existence back into perspective. It’s delightful to read, even if you don’t believe in animal communication. The book is full of wisdom and understanding. I’ll be happily placing it on my bookshelf amongst my other ‘animal books’ which are beginning to take over the entire bookshelf at this point!
