    One thought on “The Third Book of the Dun Cow: Peace at the Last

    1. Emily

      Dun at last.Wangerin s final installment in the Dun Cow Trilogy comes 28 years after Book of Sorrows and over 30 years since the first Dun Cow book was published It s strange and wonderful to me how much someone s writing can change over that span, and yet still be completely recognizable Like how our handwriting changes over time, but is still always, always ours only.Without giving away spoilers, Peace at the Last essentially brings our troop of Animals, sans Chauntecleer, into their final Saf [...]

      This final installment is strange, to say the least Repeating what everyone else has said in their reviews, it was written far long after the first two, and the 30some year gap between the first and the final book is very obvious While it still is the battle between good and evil, it does not have the same level of allegory as its predecessors There were a few sections I highlighted in my kindle that are references to scripture, but not as many as in the books before I found that a little disapp [...]

    3. Chrystal

      3.5 starsThis is not a book for children not that the first 2 books were either, but neither were they cringe worthy I was frankly shocked at the gruesome violence, strong language, and indelicate passages I know this is to portray the dark evil ones, but I m old fashioned There are ways of showing, not telling And honestly, couldn t he have given us Dun Cow Isn t that what we were all hoping for A good ending, but I wanted to see her at the end.

      I only made it a couple chapters in to this final book in the Dun Cow trilogy It had some pretty graphic descriptions on the outset that set it apart from the first two books in my opinion, as well as a much heavier peppering of language The writing also seemed to have less of that rich innocence that made the raw transparency of the previous books so worthwhile I m sad to have to give any part of this series a somewhat negative review, since I have been such a huge fan of it on the whole Before [...]

      Like the previous two books in the Book of the Dun Cow series, Peace at Last continues the fight between good and evil Now that evil has entered the world and infected many animals, the world has become a very dangerous place for those who would follow the path of righteousness The disparate group of animals, this Band of the Meek, finds itself trapped between a huge mob of vicious killers intent on destroying them and the promised sanctuary which is hidden at the bottom of a steep ravine It wil [...]

      REVIEW WIPLike the previous book, Lamentations,this book seemed rather rushed, as if it was abridged from a much longer original story However, Lamentations WAS abridged from an original story, which Peace at the Last isn t Nothing seemed to be given adequate time to sink in, which robbed the story of a chance to REALLY have me emotionally invested That ending, however, was a beautifully welcome relief After the sheer hell of The Book of Sorrows, it s good to know that the innumerable heartbreak [...]

      In order to review this book because I got an advance copy, I felt it was necessary to do the homework of reading the first two books of the dun cow I do not care for fantasy but as a fan of Wangerin I was up for the challenge I am so pleased to have read the trilogy The first book introduces the characters and their lives when animals could talk In the second evil stalks the land and in the third the animal world reaches peace at last However, that is too simple a description of evil that lurks [...]

      The final book in the dun cow series and my least favorite, that being said it s still a well written story and I was hooked until the end same as the other 2 books I think maybe the reason I didn t enjoy this book as much is because as an atheist I don t believe in an afterlife so the ending fell kind of flat for me, but hey I knew I was reading a book written by a religious man about religion so I suppose I can t really complain when the books end with heaven I have to admit I love happy endin [...]

    9. David Daugherty

      Not nearly as good as the first just had to add graphic descriptions of sex and cursing, which felt very out of place when compared to the first two This made it seem as though Wangerin was trying to push edginess into a Christian allegory, like a pastor who thinks it s cool to drop F bombs It was also very rushed and just felt like a tacked on obligation than a well conceived fable like the first two But, if you want these characters you ve grown to love to advance beyond where Book of Sorrows [...]

    10. Josh Bishop

      Although it lacks much of the beauty and wisdom of the previous two books and the first chapter in particular reads about as comfortably as a fist in the face Peace at the Last is worth reading for the finale alone A good but not great volume that, in the end, overcomes its weaknesses and wraps up the Dun Cow series well.

    11. David Rollins

      I really liked the first two books in this series This book, published than 20 years after the first two, was a bit of a disappointment It resolved the loose ends of the story, but in a way that seemed somewhat artificial I wont give away the plot twists and resolutions, but other readers may find the story here a bit labored and out of character with the first two books.

      Wangerin s books are an experience I m never quite sure what I m reading with mystical cows and saintly hens and the world rising and falling on the back of a rooster This last one seemed a little less cheeky and a little grave maybe my favorite of the trilogy.

    13. Tom Beetham

      Not for children, intense, meaningfulThough this story begins a little slow and is disturbing in places, it has a very beautiful and powerful ending that makes it worth reading.
