5.0 out of 5 stars A picture paints a thousand words May 4 2003
By Suzan Lenk - Published on Amazon.com
Why waste words when pictures say so many. Just turning the pages of this book gives you a warm and wonderful feeling about alpacas and llamas. A desire to touch one because they look so adorable.
I have three holiday cottages and in each I have a copy of this book on the coffee tables. Every week my guests tell me what a lovely book it is and how their children love to look at the photos. They then ask me if I will show them my own alpacas and llamas for real. As we walk around the fields they ask informed questions which they formulated from reading the copy of 'Llamas and Alpacas as a Metaphor for Life'. The feel of them then becomes a reality.
I think it is a lovely book and just the right size for anyones' home. I also think that it is good value, especially with its fascination and appeal for the animals and the excellent photography which must cost a bomb. Well done Marty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice book, but a little expensive Aug. 11 2009

The pictures in this book are absolutely adorable, but other reviews that sort of imply that it's a coffee table book make it seem that it's more substantial than it actually is. It's paperback and relatively small. Cute and funny (and a tad corny), but at the current price, a little expensive for what you get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coffee table book March 29 2007
By P. Collins - Published on Amazon.com

This is a wonderful book, for all ages. If you are a llama owner, it is a very nice book to introduce them as animals to friends and family, who just might be puzzled as to why you find them as fun companions. It is chock full of great photos, and is written in an interesting manner. Since it is so full of pictures, it is a good one to have out on the coffee table for visitors to pick up and enjoy. Even though I have way too many books, this one will stay with me!
5.0 out of 5 stars Llamas & Alpacas as a Metapor for Life Jan. 29 2007
By Karen Deland - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this book with my daughter in mind. She adores llamas and I am unable to find appropriate books for her age group. I thought we could enjoy this together but it is too "deep" for an eight year old, although she does love browsing through and looking at the fabulous pictures. I, on the other hand, loved the book and made many connections. How true the title is!!!!!! Animal lovers should read this book. It is an easy read and will make you laugh and ponder your own life's happenings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good photos, weak content Oct. 20 2007

The color photos are excellent, but I expected more substance in the test. Don't expect to learn anything, just light and fluffy.
