Don’t judge the book by the movie! This is a doggy reincarnation story told from the Dog’s perspective. (yes, that means the dog dies, and is born again). The author, Bruce Cameron, brilliantly shifted the mood from the dog’s death on one page to the puppy’s birth on the next page. Ie: I only cried for a moment, and then went right back to laughing out loud.
A Dog’s Purpose is dog’s-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man’s best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.
