This week I am reviewing:
This is the remarkable story of one endearing dog’s search for his purpose over the course of several lives. More than just another charming dog story, A Dog’s Purpose touches on the universal quest for an answer to life’s most basic question: Why are we here?
Surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy after a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey’s search for his new life’s meaning leads him into the loving arms of 8-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog.
But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey’s journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders—will he ever find his purpose?
Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog’s Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog’s many lives, but also a dog’s-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man’s best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.
I am not a dog person. But before people bite my head off, I had a dog growing up and she was the best dog in the world. Honestly. She was the smartest animal I could have ever thought existed. Her and I grew up together…so, it’s not like I am completely against them. I like them, but I don’t want to own one right now.
This book follows a dogs life. But not just one life, their many lives until they have reached their ultimate purpose in life. This book goes full circle with the dog and I spent a few nights just crying in bed. Yes, crying. And Jeremy was laughing at me since I was crying because of a book (this boy just doesn’t understand sometimes). So, if you are a dog lover and want to read a book from the dog’s point of view, I highly recommend this. It was funny, light and insightful. There were sad moments (of course) but overall it was so amazing. Read this if you haven’t already.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
