WHEN ANIMALS DREAM The Hidden World of Animal Consciousness

by | Read by Charlie Thurston

Contemporary Culture • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrating with excitement, Charlie Thurston tells the story of an octopus who changes colors while sleeping, as if reliving catching and eating a crab. Thurston comes across as engaged and fascinated with the author’s accounts of scientific experiments suggesting that animals dream. Occasionally, Thurston’s voice softens, as when delivering speculation as to whether animals have a sense of their potential. Listeners might wish to learn more about such experiments since Peña-Guzman devotes a lot of time to the philosophy behind dreaming. An experiment that involved giving rats electric shocks to study their nightmares could make some listeners wonder whether it’s best not to delve further into animals’ dreams. Still, the audiobook could spark listeners' curiosity about what’s going on in the minds of our animal companions. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
