Takashi Murakami writes a story about a dog and his unlucky owner. As they move through life the reader gets to see the perspective of the pup – who speaks in full sentences that relay his emotions and thoughts. Ease of Reading(9/10): Being a graphic novel it does not read as easily as a non-graphic novel, however it was very well written and I do not recall ever feeling confused as to where to look next.
Accuracy of Information(7/10): As far as science can tell dogs do not think in complete sentences seeing as language is a foreign concept for them. This can be misleading but overall the human-dog bond was very well portrayed.
Usefulness of Information(7/10): I found that this book was very useful in reminding individuals as to the true character of dogs. I don’t want to spoil anything but if you’re trying to strengthen your relationship with your dog this will push all the right emotional buttons. I believe my dog got a hug a few times through this book.
Cost: On the back of the book it reads $11.99. Link to Amazon.
Bottom Line: I loved this book and it’s going to stay on my shelves as a reminder of the story. I would recommend this to anybody who wants a book on the human-dog bond.
