Book Review and Giveaway: A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

Posted: 13 Oct 2010 07:05 AM PDT

I A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameronwas a little surprised at how much I liked A Dog’s Purpose (aff). The thing is, I normally don’t like books or movies that feature talking animals. (Cartoons and some animated movies are sometimes an exception.)

I had picked the book up in the bookstore and put it back down after I realized it was written from a dog’s point of view. I had made up my mind I wouldn’t like it. But when I was asked if I’d like a copy to review, I said OK, and decided I’d give it a chance. I’m glad I did!

This isn’t the typical cutesy talking dog story with a dog who wears frilly dog cloths, dines on gourmet food from a silver platter, and thinks and acts more like a human than a dog. Instead, this dog actually admits to liking stinky things, enjoys ripping stuff to shreds, and doesn’t always understand what his people are talking about. And, what’s more, and what makes the book so easy to get into, is that this dog is on a quest to find a purpose in life. As he is reincarnated through several lifetimes, you’ll meet the people and circumstances that teach him about life and why he has come back so many times.

Through a dog’s eyes, you’ll meet different types of dog people in this book, and each of them will affect you in a different way. In the end though I know this book will touch your heart, make you love your dog more than ever, and maybe even make you think about your purpose in life. And if you’re like me, you’ll want your dogs by you side as you read!
