Very dramatic and cliff-hanging sub-plot is woven into a story about an everyday dysfunctional couple trying to raise and love their almost adult daughter -- one wanting to protect and shelter and the other promoting the theory "if you love them, let them go." In the end, both parents prove to be right.
Not especially well-written, but the story is riveting and very believable. The non-believers will find holes in the story and explain it away. Believers will find even more proof that there really is a place called heaven.
Shirley MacClaine has always told it like it is...and at this point in her life, she's holding nothing back. The fun is that if you're in the same age bracket, you'll find yourself agreeing because the same things drive you crazy in life -- the big things and the little things. Not as deep or as spiritual as her other books. More like a good gripe session with a good friend.
Tina Fey is funny when she acts and funny when she writes. Here she gives humorous glimpses into her past -- how she's reached her fame and renown. A fun listen that doesn't get too deep.
...you'll love this book. Told in unsentimental terms, the author makes you believe what you always suspected -- that dogs comprehend what we do and say, and they have their own devoted point of view as well. Unlike other "dogs that think" stories, this is a book about adults coping with adult topics. Not overly sappy or cute. You come to respect and admire the dignity of this dog named Enzo.
