I had no desire to read this book, because I knew it included passages about a dog dying. However I was stuck at an airport with very little choice in books and decided to go for it. Yes it is the story of a dog’s many lives (and deaths), so be prepared to cry! More than that, it is a first-person story of a dog’s life whose perspective makes you laugh out loud. These include the dog’s analysis of people and other animals (including cats, which he thinks are stupid).
I thoroughly enjoyed A Dog’s Purpose and would recommend it to anyone who loves dogs. While there are a few sad passages, overall it is totally heartwarming and a great read.
