A few weeks ago (you might remember), I posted five reasons why I thought you should read the bestselling novel A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.
You might also remember that at the end of the post, I mentioned that the sequel, A Dog's Journey (pictured above) - in which Buddy, the dog protagonist, finds himself on a life journey with a different human, Ethan's granddaughter, Clarity - had just hit the shelves and that I'd be reading it as soon as I could get my hands on a local library copy.
Well, I did. And I have. And here's what I think, starting with why you shouldn't read the book:
If you haven't read A Dog's Purpose yet. Trust me. Now, hurry up and read A Dog's Purpose!
And, the reasons why you should:
1 - 4) Refer to the first four reasons why I said you should read the first book. The same reasons apply here.
5) The dog's human is a girl/teenager/woman, which might make the story more relatable to female readers (it was to me). At a minimum, it demonstrates (in literary form) that dogs form equally strong bonds with humans of both sexes.
6) It's just plain fun.
(P.S. I'll see you back here on Friday.)
