    I'm an Aspen, CO based journalist/aspiring novelist and love to listen to popular fiction to get a sense of what's currently on the market!

    Any additional comments?

    At first I hated the main character of this book and had a hard time listening. Then I realized there was a sort of self-depracating humor about the character that becomes more apparent as the book progresses, that the whole story is making fun of what a Yoga Teacher typically represents -- a lot of contradictions at the very least. Fun to have a male protagonist who is somewhat exploited. In the end, it was an enjoyable, funny, and somewhat illuminating book.

    I really enjoyed this book which surprised me. I thought it was going to be lame but it wasn't. I loved that the main character was a guy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Downward Dog?

    He just kept blowing up his life and seemed to have a hard time learning from his mistakes. But he kept trying.
