Laura Shields why would you even assume it was written for either or
Les As a man, I found the author's ability to get inside male emotions quite extraordinary. I enjoyed the book enormously; but in spite of a considerable amount of action the critical story is the hero's internal emotional struggle.
Sherri I don't think that it was written for women, though if you are looking for action packed, it is not. It is more of a human study, the life of a man during hard times. I think there are some lessons to be learned from it. Give it a try.
Ben Klayer The protagonist is male. It's about a young man who joins a circus as the veterinarian.
Melissa B Don't let that assumption ruin it for you. It's written from a male perspective and i think she did a really good job!
Violet I was just wondering this same question, I am looking for a book to listen to with my boyfriend on a long road trip and was worried it would be to girly, thanks for asking!
