    This is a good book for people who received a classic college education especially if it included Latin It s not especially campy, for those who did not go to college, but one can smell the ivy blocks away De Anima l is a mystery written in the third person, with clearly defined characters, and based around the effect a philosophy professor has on a student Wishful thinking The chapters average about four pages, which is long enough to get a full concept or short episode, and not so short as to mimic a sitcom The story is not exactly riveting or compelling, but it is interesting I would say this book reminds me of The Name of the Rose lite okay, extra lite.

    I found this book provided a good starting point for a philosophical debate over animal rights, and whether animals and humans have souls.Joe Costanzo is an established newspaper reporter and I found that it showed in the writing style, occasionally focused on the facts of the scene rather than the emotion Overall it was an interesting book that provided the reader with some great food for thought on the philosophical level, but not so much on the mystery and plot.I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

    As a retired collage professor I found this book very interesting Individuals interested in animal rights or philosophy should find this a very interesting book But it also should be interesting to anyone.

    I wasn t sure if I would like this book, but it was quite good A few parts could use an edit, but I m a bit picky about that.
