Default The Story of Edgar Sawhill

Have any of you read this fantastic dog story? They only hint at the breed of dog but I just kept seeing GSD when I read it. Amazing book.

It's on my to-read list. I think the dog breed is fictional. Looking forward to a good read

Thumbs up The Story of Edgar Sawtelle


"The Story of EDGAR SAWTELLE" What a awesome story, I have cried, laughed and have hated the uncle. It is about a family who raise a unique breed of intelligent, companion dogs. They are not GSD's but have the characteristics of shepherds. I am on my next to the last audio disc. I have loved it from the beginning. Can't wait to see what happens to Uncle Claude. It is so worth the read or listening to the audio disc's.

I have the book but both my co-workers said they hated the ending so I put off reading it they said they loved the book except for the ending?

The ending was a bit surprising. You must read it!

Yes. I too was sad several times during book. I won't ruin it but you will love Almondine. One of those stories that has you high one minute and sobbing the next.

holland, I'm in the same boat as your coworkers. It's loosely based off Hamlet, but it just wasn't as satisfying. The best part of the book is the middle/middle-end.

Unhappy

OH CRAP!!

Thats why I have never watched Marley or I am Legend or several others because of what someone has said about the endings.

Now I'm not sure if I want to listen to my last disc or not. I hate coming away from a movie or disc hating the ending.

I also loved Almondine & SA!!!
