    "He believed the dog was immortal." So begins Susan Orlean’s sweeping, powerfully moving story of Rin Tin Tin’s journey from orphaned puppy to movie star and international icon. From the moment in 1918 when Corporal Lee Duncan discovers Rin Tin Tin on a World War I battlefield, he recognizes something in the pup that he needs to share with the world. Rin Tin Tin’s improbable introduction to Hollywood leads to the dog’s first blockbuster film and, over time, the many radio programs, movies, and television shows that follow.

    What disappointed you about Rin Tin Tin?

    There is way too much in here about the author and the people who breed Rin Tin Tin descendants.. To me it is like watching a TV show about hoarders. These people are obsessive, but that does not make them interesting.


    What could Susan Orlean have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If the author had been told to write the story with half the pages, the book surely would have been three times better. Information about the dogs that were in Hollywood was relevant and relatively important. I do not care why the author became obseessive about Rin Tin Tin - enough.


    Any additional comments?

    I only finsihed the book because we were discussing it at our book club, but it was painful.
