It was a good book. For anyone planning to read it--keep the tissues handy.

I LOVED THIS BOOK. It certainly got mixed reviews on Goodreads and Amazon, but many of the readers who disliked it hung their opinions on the "dogs are not humans and do not act like that" hook. Well, no ... not precisely, but neither do spooky old women typically tell your fortunes in real life. I think a lot of the readers who didn't like it picked it up because "it's a dog story," and they weren't prepared for the speculative fiction element. Which, you know, that's fine and all, but Wroblewski never claimed to be James Herriot.

Anyway, I loved it. I read it in 2008, and seeing this post makes me want to read it again.
