Book Review: A Dog's Purpose

A Dog's Purpose: A Novel for Humans (A Dog's Purpose series Book 1) by [Cameron, W. Bruce]

A Dog's Purpose: A Novel for Humans (A Dog's Purpose series Book 1) 


A Dog’s Purpose—the #1 New York Times bestseller—is heading to the big screen! Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose, from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House RulesDear JohnThe 100-Foot Journey), shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Britt Robertson, KJ Apa, John Ortiz, Peggy Lipton, Juliet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Pooch Hall and Dennis Quaid. A Dog’s Purpose is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland, TV’s Gilmore Girls). The film from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media will be distributed by Universal Pictures. Screenplay by W. Bruce Cameron & Cathryn Michon and Audrey Wells and Maya Forbes & Wally Wolodarsky.
Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a 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, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.
Bailey's story continues in A Dog's Journey, the charming New York Times and USA Today bestselling direct sequel to A Dog's Purpose.

My Thoughts:

I knew I had to read this book after my daughter told me how good the movie was.   I was kind of disappointed that the book didn't seem to be as good as the movie.   It's all told from a dog's prospective mind you so sometimes it took me awhile to comprehend what might be wrong from the human's point of view.  Maybe the movie might have that more happen faster.  

I'm not totally against this book.  It's just different from what I'm used to.   I think we all have a love of dog's and we can enjoy this cute story to some extent.
