I am surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. It’s a novel that to me reads like a memoir. I can easily see the story unfolding in real life, well other than the talking dog. Then again, I talk to my dogs all the time and sometimes think that they have actual answers for me. I also read into their actions and expressions as though they were saying things to me. An enjoyable, but sad (the dog is old…) book to read.
