I love books that include dogs, as dogs are such a major part of my life. I was drawn to the cover and thought that this book would be similar to 'Emma and I' by Sheila Hocker, 'A dog named Christmas' and 'Christmas with Tucker' by the fantastic Greg Kincaid and the tear-jearking 'Marley and Me' by John Grogan. I thought that this was going to be in the same vein as many of the previous books I had read involving dogs. It took a very long time to get to the Labrador,'Lloyd' and I found that his role in the book was peripheral. Much of the book discussed suffering anorexia through one of the characters, how to load a traditional bow and arrow (which I found very strange) and the psychological problems associated with grief. I felt analysed through characterization. I had little empathy with the central character and found myself putting the book down more than wanting to find out what happened next. All in all, I found it very disappointing and it wouldn't entice me to read any more of this author.
