This is a very well written book with serious flaws I cannot fathom what the point of the book is or why it s getting such good press The author doesn t seem to understand the relationship between story and the flow of ideas He skips over important details such as why anyone does anything they do in the story What does all that dog training have to do with the story And someone please explain the old woman at the grocery store Great books and even just good ones use incident to explain motivation and to carry forward the ideas the book is trying to convey This book is filled with incident that has no bearing on anything and the author carries the story forward with the help of ghosts strange storms and sudden unexplained shifts in the character s understanding of what is happening In reality I kept imagining that it was really a 576 page short story It is certainly not a novel in the traditional sense I think the buzz is because of the nice dogs True when I was a boy I had a really great purebred Collie who was really a human in disguise and I still remember him very fondly forty years on But even Brody my dog could not warrant a pointless 576 page short story

I had such high hopes for this book Just read these descriptive passages This will be his earliest memoryRed light morning light High ceiling canted overhead Lazy click of toenails on wood Between the honey colored slats of the crib a whiskery muzzle slides forward until its cheeks pull back and a row of dainty front teeth bare themselves in a ridiculous grin The nose uivers The velvet snout dimplesFine dark muzzle fur Black nose leather of lacework creases comma of nostrils flexing with each breath As slowly as he can he exhales feigning sleep but despite himself his breath hitches At once the muzzle knows he is awake It snorts Angles right and left Withdraws Outside the crib Almondine s foreuarters appear Her head is reared back her ears cocked forwardA cherry brindled eye peers back at himHe pitches to his side rubs his hand across the blanket blows a breath in her face Her ears flick back She stomps a foot He blows again and she withdraws and bows and woofs low in her chest uiet and deepHearing it he forgets and presses his face against the rails to see her all of her take her inside him with his eyes and before he can move she smears her tongue across his nose and forehead I mean comma of nostrils Such a perfect dog nose description I expected this stuff through the whole bookThe book opens with a mysterious prologue and even mysterious description of the farm and particularly the barn Then an even MORE mysterious kind of wolf puppy is discovered that somehow predicts something then dies The novel lays out a nice plot family raises dogs has created their own breed not because of the way it looks but the way it behaves They won t sell to anyone one until it is an adult and is properly trained Gar and Trudy try to have children Trudy has several miscarriages and finally after the mysterious wolf cub is found and dies they have a boy who is not deaf but is completely mute He has this marvelous relationship with the dogs and a particularly close relationship with the above described Almondine There is a tiny hint of magic as the plot progresses just enough to make you warm and cautious at the same time But somewhere between when the watery image of his dead dad appears and Page the vet falls down the steps and dies and Edgar and 3 of his dogs run away the book just falls apart for me And during the rest of the read I hoped that the next page would pull away from the tedium that had set in and get back to business and answer some of the mysterious uestions that the author had set floating around in his misty prose But it did not happen I either did not get it or it was not delivered I struggled through the last half wishing I had followed Mike s lead and stopped after the first 100 pages How sad
