A New York Times bestseller! National Book Award finalist Sy Montgomery reflects on the personalities and quirks of 13 animals--her friends--who have profoundly affected her in this stunning, poetic, and life-affirming memoir featuring illustrations by Rebecca Green. Understanding someone who belongs to another species can be transformative. No one knows this better than author, naturalist, and adventurer Sy Montgomery. To research her books, Sy has traveled the world and encountered some of the planet's rarest and most beautiful animals. From tarantulas to tigers, Sy's life continually intersects with and is informed by the creatures she meets. This restorative memoir reflects on the personalities and quirks of thirteen animals--Sy's friends--and the truths revealed by their grace. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.… (lisätietoja)

Charming, sweet, fun. If you have read Montgomery's "The Good, Good Pig," "Birdology,"or "The Soul of the Octopus," you will have met some of these beings already, and in more depth. I was attracted by the intent of the book to tell these stories of her animal friends and acquaintances and what they have taught her about being a "good creature." It doesn't quite work in that regard. She is a gifted, vivid writer, and the animal characters are brought delightfully to life with a full-hearted respect for who they are in their own selves. She does acknowledge how she came to learn to see them that way (in the chapter on the tropical spider named Clarabelle, she astutely recognizes the moment when she suddenly saw Clarabelle not as a "giant spider!" but as a small animal, which feels completely different). As housemate to half a border collie (she's not saying what the other half is), I enjoyed the portraits of Montgomery's sequence of three border collies and how three dogs of the same breed can still be such different personalities. But that's pretty much what this very readable book amounts to: interesting, enjoyable, well-told animal tales. ( )

Sy Montgomery really makes you think about the personalities of creatures, whether they be dogs, spiders, kangaroos, octopi, etc. This woman has a real feel for trying to get the thoughts and feelings of all kinds of creatures. This book was so interesting and solidifies some of my own thoughts about living things. ( )

How to Be a Good Creature is a series of essays/stories about the authors relationship with different animals throughout her life. The author is able to form deep bonds with creatures of all kinds and tells how these bonds helped her understand different aspects of her life. The writing is wonderful and full of emotion. Its had descriptions that bring the animals and their environments to life. Unfortunately, I had a hard time connecting to the book. I was hoping that the author would take the "lessons" a step further and expand her conclusions beyond her personal story to all people and what others could learn. I also had a hard time relating to how fast she developed such a deep connection with the animals. I felt like I was reading a love at first sight novel and I really wanted to learn more about how the connections were established. The story of the Emu's came closest to what I was expecting, although ultimately I found that lacking what I was looking for too. I definitely think this was a case of me not being the right reader for this book. I am sure that there are readers that would love these stories for what they are, but I was expecting something different. I think I will try one of the author's other books. Maybe in a format where the animal is given an entire book rather than just a chapter, I will find the details that I felt like these stories were missing. ( )

A heartwarming, beautifully written memoir. Just what is needed in this chaotic time. Ms. Montgomery will convince you to feel compassion and heart for scary spiders and a huge octopus as well as pigs, chickens, and dogs. Each chapter is dedicated to a different animal the author has met in her life. Through these experiences, we learn interesting facts about the animal and the life of the author at the same time. A lovely, lovely read! ( )
