This is the first book I am reading on my Kindle and I am really enjoying it. I am a very big animal lover and
I have already cried about 5 times and I am only half way through! The story just took a very scary turn and
I since I do not like to watch election coverage, I may just turn off the TV and read into the night! Well I do want to watch
The Real Housewives of Atlanta at 10 p.m. ;)!

I highly recommend it... especially if you love dogs!

Someone on my blog mentioned it took them awhile to get into it, but then it took off for them. I was not crazy about the prologue but from the first Chapter I have been hooked. I think it might be worth it for you to push through a bit further...

I have hear so many mixed reviews, so I would be very interested in what you think of the book as a whole.
I read it - and I'd definitely give it a mixed review - don't want to give all the reasons because of spoilers, but definitely a mixed review. The parts written from the point of view of the dog were lovely, tho...

I read it pretty much straight through back in June? July? (Early summer anyway...) I really liked it but never warmed to the character of Edgar very much. That led directly to a rereading of Hamlet (it'd been 27 years!) and lurking in several Edgar discussions (Amazon, B&N, AbeBooks). I'm still not sure what I'd say about it except I love Almondine!

I just started this in dead tree form a couple of days ago. (Thank you, Oprah) I seem to be flying through it. I am enjoying it so far. Don't we all wish we had a dog like Almondine?

I just finished it a few hours ago (my first full book on my Kindle) and overall I liked it but did feel that it could have been edited down quite a bit...I even skipped some bits I just found repetitive.

Possible Spoilers...
I'm not sure I like the direction the story took, it seemed so original in the beginning only to find out mid way, it was just a retelling of Hamlet made the tragic ends inevitable. I guessed Almodine must be Ophelia and braced myself for the inevitable. Loved the one hopeful note in the last chapter...with Essay and the other dogs.
