This book is the story of one dog. But he is re-born as a new dog multiple times. It is all told from his perspective.
First he is the puppy of a mutt. Then he is the adopted puppy of a family (in particular a boy who he pretty much grows up with). Then he is kind of an outlaw looking for his way back to the boy...will he find him? and his purpose? and how all his lives are connected and gave him what he needed to fulfill his purpose?
It is hilarious, interesting, heartbreaking, and just generally cute (in an amazingly awesome way!). I read it while I was on vacation in Vegas and it made me miss Cam so much.
If you love a dog, you will probably love this book and wonder what the dog you love would say if he could.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
It is such an interesting story. Seeing the adventures Homan takes on his journey back to Lynnie. Seeing how Martha hides the baby and how things progress over the years as she grows up. And getting to know Lynnie and the stories at the school. And then how it all comes together at the end.
It's a beautiful story. Because I am a sucker for love and happy endings.
It was a little slow for me in the beginning, but the ending was worth it.
My favorite quote from the book was in the middle and came from a secondary character:
"You think you know what you want until you realize you can have so much more."
I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.
