A DOG’S PUR­POSE by W. Bruce Cameron, Macmil­lan.

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS - MJ

If you’re de­voted to our four-legged furry friends, the chances are you’ll find this novel writ­ten from a dog’s per­spec­tive ir­re­sistible. What makes hu­morist W. Bruce Cameron’s book par­tic­u­larly unique is it fol­lows one loyal dog whose soul is rein­car­nated sev­eral times as dif­fer­ent breeds and gen­ders, with dif­fer­ent own­ers. Each new life, from res­cued stray puppy to a boy’s loyal best friend, to a brave search and res­cue Ger­man shep­herd, to a starved and ne­glected yard dog, is heart­warm­ing with­out be­ing too sen­ti­men­tal. This wise and some­times tear-in­duc­ing ca­nine chronicle, which has been made into an up­com­ing movie by Swedish di­rec­tor Lasse Hall­strom, also gives a good an­swer to that eter­nal ques­tion: “what is our pur­pose in life?”
