Animal Magnetism: My Life with Creatures Great and Small by Karen White,Rita Mae Brown



Rita Mae Brown’s earliest memory is of the soothing purr of Mickey, her family’s long-haired tiger cat, who curled up and claimed a spot in her crib. From there, a steady parade of cats, dogs, horses, and all manner of two- and four-legged critters have walked, galloped, and flown into and through her world. As funny as it is poignant, Animal Magnetism shows how these inspiring creatures, great and small, can bring out the best in us, restore us to our greater selves, and even save our lives.

Author Rita Mae Brown based some of her mysteries on one of her cats, Sneaky Pie. As an animal lover, she has written this memoir about all the various animals she has known and loved, including cats, dogs, horses, and various wildlife. As an animal-lover myself, I really enjoyed this. I agree with a lot of what she has to say, and disagree with some, but then I'm a city-person and she's a country-person and having grown up in a small town, I do realize that we see things differently. However, it's very obvious how much she loves animals, so underneath it all, we're on the. see all 2 descriptions). Library descriptions.

And, who've loved her right back. The book comes with pictures of her and various animals, I was only disappointed that while she often referred to her parents and grandparents, she never included any pictures of them

I've read ALL of Rita Mae Brown's novels - other than the cat series - over the years, as well as her few works of non-fiction. I think she's a writer's writer. Some of the most beautiful paragraphs I've read come from her work, particularly "Six of One". She's a wonderful writer in that she often returns to the same characters many times, offering updates on our old favorites. I've really enjoyed most of her "Sister" Jane series and was looking forward to a new novel this fall, but I guess that's not to be. Maybe next year...

"Animal Magnetism" really should only be read by animal-lovers. I always refer to myself as a "'dog-liker', but a 'cat-lover'". Brown really is an "ALL-animal" lover and she writes in her latest book about the many dogs, cats, horses, birds, rabbits, and other animals she's loved over her lifetime. And, who've loved her right back. The book comes with pictures of her and various animals, I was only disappointed that while she often referred to her parents and grandparents, she never included any pictures of them. I would have loved to see the REAL "Juts" and "Aunt Mimi" ("Weezie"); her wild mother and aunt she's written about so many times.

Brown sort of makes herself seem as if she likes animals more than people. Maybe she does, but I remember standing in a long line, outside a Charlottesville book/coffee shop, in the early 1990's. She was inside, at a table, autographing her latest book. The line consisted of young, old, men, women, all ages and while it was a long evening, waiting in line, Brown was incredibly charming with EACH person, taking time to talk to everyone in turn. No one seemed to mind because we all knew we would get our own "face-time" with her!

Oh, and Rita Mae, if you read this, would you please - A. update your website and B. go to work on a novel about Celeste Chalfonte and her family. She's probably your most interesting character - after "Juts" and "Weezie", of course - and I'd love to know more about her family. Surely you can make her parents and her siblings the subjects of their own story. We got a look at her in Six of One, and references to her in other novels, but please devote a book to her. Please? Pretty please?

About a year ago I said that I wasn't going to read Rita Mae Brown's books anymore because they were getting too political - and that I didn't agree with her politics all that much. Then I ran across her autobiography in a random search of life-story books at the library. Having read it, I have more understanding about how she was raised and how her life has gone since then. Based on that, her politics made a lot more sense to me - that is I have more understanding about why she feels as she does. I still get a little bored at times with the political "rants" that don't seem to have that much to do with the story, but mostly I can overlook that. I can accept that she is trying to get her point of view across without writing a non-fiction book - which might be less likely to be read.
Now about the book - I enjoyed hearing about the animals who have been a part of Rita Mae's life! One of the comments that I saw in a review of one of her books said that she seemed to understand animals more than people. She says that herself in this book. It seems that she understands animals and nature better than most other people, though, and can see that we all are fated to live or die together and that we humans are the ones that will make the difference. I think it would be a really good thing if more people understood that! Ok, there's my political "rant". :-)

Read this is you love animals, you'll love them more. Brown is observant, funny and touching, and she addresses some important things about humanity that need consideration by us all.

I have read MANY of Ms Brown's books. I enjoyed this on because it gives me a better picture of who she is as a person. I too am an a Brown from a very rural place. I grew up here then left for 37 years. I am so glad to be back in the rural area that Rita talks about. I also agree strongly in her feelings about animals. I have had many and I know from where she writes!

This book was a typically well-written and entertaining memoir about the author's childhood and her interaction with beloved animals. Since I share her love of animals and concern for their welfare I think she makes a welcome case for the idea that humans are not the only earth inhabitants and the whole living community needs protection from harmful results of human greed and narcicissm.

A little too preachy in places, but, overall very readable and educational. I loved learning about foxes, foxhounds, hunt clubs, and horses. It was also fun to recognize names from her other books and knowing the source of them.

More writing of someone I just can't get enough of their words. But I didn't have to read this one I could just listen, WOW!
Rita Mae's writing is also so real, comic/tragic but fantastic! Get yourself a copy and you will see what I mean. Very cool.
This is a terrific book about one woman's love of animals while growing up, and into adulthood. Very touching. I bought it for my Kindle, then liked it so much that I bought a paperback copy to give to a friend who I knew would appreciate the message.
