    1. Oh, I loved this book. It's a story about The People, who are genetically engineered cats, though they don't really remember this. The People are fighters, survivors, but their lives, and the lives of all the others on their world might be threatened by the return of the demons (human beings, who engineered the animals, then left the planet). I cannot say how many times I re-read this book when I was in middle and high school. I'd recommend it to any cat lover, or fan of YA science fiction. I'd [...]


    2. The 'Demons' who come again are perfectly normal humans, with a serious problem that's never resolved (they came back to Earth after generations on their refuge planet because the refuge planet was also (inexplicably) becoming uninhabitable. If they leave, where can they go?) There's some hint toward the end that there _might_ be a solution from the archives--but it's far from a certainty.Earth is presented as a planet that has become untenable for humans. If it doesn't kill them, it will poison [...]


    3. This book was the first Sci-Fi book I ever read, and it hooked me on the genre. This book starts with a being searching for game, and finding evidence of an invader. He makes his way back to the caves of his clan, where he reports on the trouble. Unfortunately, this also happens to be the time of the mating ritual - the Choosing - where the females choose mates from the visitors from other clans. Our intrepid hero, a cat who walks like the Demons (humans) who long ago fled Earth for the stars, c [...]


    4. My favorite book. I read it for the first time when I was in 5th grade (I think, I know it was before 6th). After switching to a new school building I couldn't find it anymore, though only remembering the front cover image, and the basic storyline, along with the quote at the beginning of the book didn't help. After about 9 years (with details fading and reemerging during this time) of idle searching for the book using various keywords in Google, I finally found it again. I instantly purchased i [...]


    5. I read this book as a kid, perusing the sci fi stacks at the library. I don't remember the cover being so cheesy, but I liked the story, though there was probably a lot I couldn't grasp as a kid. The main character was a cat named Furtig, and I remember naming my pound kitty after him. I'm a terrible book reviewer. hehe.


    6. I read this book as a 10 or 11 year old and loved it. I would still recommend it for young sci fi lovers. When I reread it years later for nostalgia's sake, it wasn't quite the masterpiece I remembered. But even as an adult, if you can suspend your disbelief and avoid wincing over some corny naming, there's some enjoyment here. 2.5 stars


    7. I was ready to give this five stars when I realized that there are plotholes. Not major ones, granted, but enough to make me drop a star. Aside from that, excellent story-telling, excellent characters, excellent conclusion. A very solid work.


    8. So what happens when humans wipe themselves out? The cats take over, of course! I think I've decided I just don't like Andre Norton that much. There's nothing particularly bad about the book it's a pretty basic post-apocalypse story, where Cats (The People), Dogs (Barkers), Pigs (Tusked Ones) and Rats (Rattons) mutate enough to have intelligence, and trying to figure out why the Demons (Us) left, and protect themselves in case they come back.Meanwhile, the remnants of man found a place in space, [...]


    9. Nice book, good plot and development. Man pollutes and creates a illness that forces him off earth, and after hundreds of years returns because they have again damaged their home world. However their return to earth finds that now it is inhabited by intelligent alien beings they had left behind, like the cats, dogs, rats and yes the wart hogs. The resulting struggles, discoveries, and decisions will impact all involved.




    10. Humans have deserted Earth in the wake of something that went terribly wrong. Now, 500 years later races of cats, dogs and rats have evolved into the dominant earth species. Cats, who think of themselves as 'The People" live in caves with exceptional social development. Their enemies include the Barkers and the evil, vile future rats called Rattons. This story is told from the perspective of Furtig, a future cat, who after failing to win a mate in 'the Trials' leaves his home and seeks the 'know [...]


    11. I enjoyed this story immensely this week. Although Andre Norton is one of the authors that got me into science fiction, I don't remember this one from my childhood. This story is one that puts her in the top level of the great writers of the genre.Breed to Come does what science fiction rightly is known for. The what if of the story combines with human interest to lead you to suspend disbelief and go with the wild ideas until you get to the end. I was riveted by the story of Furtig and the peopl [...]


    12. Norton's futuristic tale centers on a group of felines who have evolved into one of the planet's dominant species in the absence of humans. Where the humans went and how this evolution began is one of the book's central questions. Dogs, pigs and rats have become more advanced as well and there is conflict between each of these groups. One far-thinking leader attempts to unite the groups called Barkers, Tuskers and People in the event the "Demons" (humans) return. It is expected the Rattons will [...]


    13. A nostalgic read, since I first picked this up in elementary school. The writing style relies heavily on The Syntax Pretentious, and the story ends fairly abruptly -- basically, a bunch of stuff gets set up, and then a character introduced midway into the story spends the last few pages explaining that everything got resolved off-screen.I read an OCRed eBook, which consistently converted several Science Fictiony terms to words it found in the dictionary -- "rumbler" to "nimbler," "Ratton" (the e [...]


    14. This is one of my perennial favorite science fiction stories from the 1970s. Andre Norton loved her cats (according to both and to her own introduction to the novel), and this is a tale of cats who evolve into often bipedal humanoids because of human chemical pollution of their environment and presumably genetic engineering gone awry. I liked how she drew out catly traits into cultural ones. The tone when she's talking from the human explorers' PoV sounds a great deal like early McCaffrey (like [...]


    15. I had forgotten all about this book, and this may be the first time I actually read it. It's one of those post-apocalypse books I like, and I wonder if it's the first use of mutated animal intelligences rising as a result of the fall of mankind. In any case, that's the story in a nutshell, but the author does a fine job with her characterization and plot. Sometimes her stuff seems a little shallow and formulaic from today's perspective, but not this one. A fun read.


    16. Andre Norton is my favorite sci-fi author and this book is my favorite of his, I've read it three times. The book takes place on a planet after humans (or the "Devils") leave because of a disease. The animals that are left have evolved. The story starts off following one of the People (evolved cats) and his choice to go to one of the buildings left by the Devils. This book is incredibly creative and full of suspense and conflict that kept me turning the pages.


    17. About Earth after humans leave (or destroy selves) because of their poisoning of the planet; this also affects certain animals (cats, dogs, rats, boars)making them intelligent. Tells mostly of the cats and also what happens when 4 humans from another world come back to find out what happened.Cats.


    18. If you have a good imagination, and are into post apocaliptic stories this one is a good read, if you like smart evolutionary animals especially cats, this is for you. please read and let me know what you think.


    19. A post-apocalyptic novel about the fate of man's animals and pets when man is gone. It's an okay story but the prose is kind of stiff and there isn't a speck of humor to be found. The ending was abrupt as well.


    20. This is one of my favorite Andre Norton books!! I have read it many times over the years and got my kids to read it as well.



    21. This story was very enjoyable read. It was well written and the characters were very likable. This adventure is Andre Norton at her best.




    22. A modern day Native American pilot is shot down over Russia. This is his story of capture and escapes as well as the story of the Russian girl who captures his heart.
