I'll be the first to admit that I don't read that much. When I do read, I tend to stick to non-fiction. My mom gave me this book in my Christmas stocking last year. A couple months ago, I picked it off the bookshelf, started reading and couldn't put it down. It was a fantastic story, mostly told from a dog's perspective. I loved it so much, I bought all the books this author has written. I highly recommend.
