I don't understand why people recommend this book for dog lovers. There's graphic animal abuse and animal torture. A poor sweet dog suffers because its master wants to find out "the truth". Be warned ...this is not a sunny, My Dog Skip kind of story. I wish I hadn't read this book. Needless to say, I was disappointed with the story.

This is a very unique book about a man who returns home from work to discover that his wife has died while he's been gone. The only witness to the death is the family dog, so the man attempts to communicate with his dog to discover the reason his beloved wife is no longer with him.
This book is very strange, yet slightly addictive. I couldn't put it down in some parts, but in others, I just wanted to walk away. It's a very intriguing story, and a rather quick read.

I also don't understand why this book is recommended to dog lovers. There is a vivid, disturbing element about trying to restructure dogs' anatomy so they can talk, which I found very distressing. I'm such a dog lover that I REALLY didn't like this book. It was just too strange & very upsetting. Be warned if you read this that it's not a typical dog-lovers' book.
