I bought this for an entire circle of friends as momentos for whom I wanted something very special to capture the depth we had just gained with each other in working through difficulty and refinement with each other. It was absolutely perfect as a treasure gift.
You will love this book, and the pictures will leave you roaring with laughter, yet cooing with sentiment.
Stephanie S. Sawyer, author and reviewer
The subtitle of the book is "The True Value of Friendship." I somehow cannot associate the caption that, "Great friends cannot be manufactured in a laboratory by an evil genius," as being a factor of the value of friendship. Yes; it's meant to be clever and possibly funny, but it's just not my kind of humor. Some of the animals are dressed in costumes, such as pigs in grass skirts or a dog wearing glasses at a computer, and other dogs wearing clothes that may be pajamas. (A matter of individual taste, of course.) Near the end of the book are a dozen or so very negative things about "friends" who aren't really friends, such as bullies, drama queens, or those who are unreliable. Had I been the author or the editor, I would have omitted those pages and focused on the positive. The photos aren't great quality, and unrealistic color tints don't help, either.
At the same time as purchasing this book, I also purchased FRIENDS FOREVER, by Anne Rogers Smyth. Had I been shopping in a bookstore and looked at both books, I would have chosen FRIENDS FOREVER and not both. (See my review of the other book, if you're interested.) I would not purchase FRIENDS TO THE END again, and it will not be a gift for my friend, as previously planned.
As a gift to clients, I ordered the paperback version of this book. Well, the photos in this edition are no longer black and white. They've been edited with some cheap looking Warhol treatment and selective color ... just awful. I returned every single one and will be ordering the (twice as expensive) hardcover instead.
