Written by the author at the age of 15, this literary examination of the life of a leopard is surprisingly adult, both in the maturity of its composition and its universal appeal. John Lee skillfully attends to the story, making the listener feel close to the animal's struggles and discoveries. Unlike that of other O'Brian books, the vocabulary is at a young adult level, making it fine fodder for family listening with one exception--it ends too quickly. Listeners are treated to the vicarious experience of living in the mind of a carnivore for its life span and may be a bit shocked by the ending.
