The book's alternate world contains talking animals and insects which walk upright and covers everything from the known science of the time, to philosophy, religion, and politics.
As I mentioned in the Books: A Literary discussion thread, I went through some trouble finding the book in ePub format, so I made my own. Here's my ePub
of it so you don't have to go through the trouble yourself. And since you have a Kindle, here it is in mobi format
(converted with Calibre).
