This book is for anyone who's ever had a dog look at them and say, "You need a dog, and I'm it."
I've read a lot of books about dogs, and books about dog behavior. This book combines both in a way that will instruct you, make you laugh, and make you cry.
The author presents factual information about dogs along with a variety of opinions and popular theories about dog behavior, which is interesting. But he also tells one of the best "dog-oirs" I've ever read.
The narrator is one of the best I've heard so far too.
I bought the book because it was Joe Hill, who is Stephen King's son, and I was prepared to be disappointed. He has, after all, nearly impossible shoes to fill. But I wasn't disappointed!
I don't read much that really scares me, but this book was chilling. From the very first chapter, where an aging rockstar buys a ghost on a not-e-bay auction site, it simply doesn't stop. The characters of the book are believable and well-defined, and the plot is unpredictable.
One of the things I liked best was the way all the plots were interwoven. Some of the humor in it was laugh-out-loud funny and I learned alot about genetics along the way.
I can see where some fan's of his books would be put off by this one - it's very different from some of his other works. But if you can put that prejudice aside, and read it for what it is and not not as a "Michael Crichton" book, it's good!
