I found this book read very slow and was a very depressing picture of a difficult set of circumstances. I also found it rather unrealistic in that no one seemed to be able to communicate with one another.
I listened to this book which took quite a long time, and I really enjoyed the story of the dogs and how Edgar taught them to learn sign, and so much of the emotion surrounding this family. I even enjoyed the parts that seemed unreal, like Edgar seeing his father and the old man. In fact, even though it was very long and at times tedious, I liked up it until the very end. I was shocked and horrified at the way the author ended the book. It really ruined it for me and for others I have spoken to.
