Jim Gorant's The Lost Dogs

Postby Nate » Fri Nov 12, 2010 9:38 pm

Hey,

I dunno if anyone else has read it...but I thought it was fantastic. Mr. Gorant does a fantastic job of empathizing with the animals. It's not an easy read, but to me it's an honest portrayal of what these animals went through.

I won't be able to read it -- good grief, I couldn't even manage Nop's Trials, and that's fiction! -- but I'm glad he wrote it, it got stellar reviews, and I hope it is widely read.

One of my friends read it and said it's not as gory as you think and that it's very well written...said she had to read the whole thing in one day, couldn't put it down.

Ya I loved it, it is hard to read. Not many books I've bought have justified the hardcover price. This one did.

I am going to see if it's in my local library. Maybe I can read it since I already know the outcome, you know? LOL

Connie - I read it while I was super hormonal and not once did I break down into sobs. There were a few uncomfortable parts, but nothing too horrendous. And if anyone was going to break down and/or have a nightmare it was me.

Okay. :thumbup:

I'm currently reading it...almost finished. It is a hard read, but it's a good book. I can't believe that they didn't put the monster away for good.
