A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron is about a dog who is reborn into many different lives. Each one, he believes, has a purpose. Throughout his journey, he teaches readers the simple pleasures of a dog’s life and the reasons dogs live by our side as we go through much more complicated lives than them.
I liked this book because the author really lets the reader into a dog’s mind and communicates real emotions to them. He lets you see life from a whole new perspective and pinpoints the important things in life that we share with man’s best friend. A dog’s purpose can also be carefree and funny!
You might like this book if you have a dog or are a dog person. If you have ever thought, “what might that dog be thinking?” this is the book for you. Or if you simply might like a book that tells the tale of a dog’s life, purpose, pleasures and challenges, give it a try! A Dog’s Purpose is a thoughtful, fun book that can be thoroughly enjoyed.
