Well, I must admit, I am the absolute prime audience for this book as not only a dog owner, but a pit-lover as well. This was a wonderful book! The writer did a lovely job of juxtaposing the life of a man and the life of a dog. She really worked to equate their lives, and it definitely worked. She evoked emotions and her plot, though slow to start, was riveting by the end. And while I think the pit bull has become a bit of a fad dog to promote their inherent goodness (and don't get me wrong, they are good dogs!), Wilson did a good job of making a beauty of the beast that society has also declared the pit bull to be. The chapters from the dog's point-of-view were a bit lacking in credibility, but all of the emotions raised in the book were quite genuine, which more than made up for her constantly pushing how similar this man and his dog were. Really, it was just a lovely book.

I loved this book. When it first began I disliked the main character very much. The author very skillfully brought about the inner souls of all of the people involved. I can't even begin to tell you about the chapters written with the dog as narrator. What a powerful look into the life of a dog who may, by luck, fall into good or bad hands. I recommend this book to all who love a good story, especially dog lovers. Amazing.

I love this poignant story; in fact, I cried my way through it. I do want to warn dog lovers, however, that there is a graphic depiction of the lives of dogs bred to fight that is very difficult to read.

Having read the reviews, I did expect a little happier book. While it ended well, I guess, it was almost too much for me what the dog had gone through. A good story, but it made me angry before it was over and it was a sad and rough journey.

I just finished this book moments ago. It is a book about the strength of the healing bond between human and dog - the similarities of our struggles when we hurt others, are hurting ourselves and the road to healing. Be prepared to be changed and to love the dog in your life even more than you already do.

A quick read and perhaps a bit predictable, but I really enjoyed the chapters written from Chance's point of view.
