by Alan Dean Foster
don’t mind that ungulates are non-sapient in one book and intelligent in
the next, or that the race of the police changes, or that the social
standing of rodents changes --- but when most of the plot or dialogue
serves only as comic effect, it makes the reality of the characters,
their dialogue, disappointing. I’d like more of the starkness of the
original book; this series is getting more and more cartoony. Still an
intriguing main plotline, though.
