    Fascinating The author has woven a wonderful tale depicting how the first tame canine came to be The characters involved closely relate, regarding vices and motivations, in characteristics present to contemporary man The wolves evolved into pets..yet man has yet to evolve beyond his primeval urges.

    I am an avid reader since childhood which is many decades ago I have a varied taste and have read all of Ken Follet, most of Ludlum, Heinlein, Oscar Scott Card, J.D Robb, etc etc I love reading W Bruce Cameron came on my radar with A Dog s Purpose which I have read than once and is one of my favorite books When he released A Dog s Journey of course I pounced on that and ate it up When I heard he was releasing a new novel I pre ordered from and anxiously awaited my copy I try to get proper sleep, but this book made it hard And, then here I was reading it when I was supposed to be paying attention to my husband oops. It got my attention from the first few chapters and once again he writes from an amazing viewpoint that is unique to his author Never have I seen someone write from an animal s viewpoint in such an amazing way I am an avid animal lover and I am now an avid W Bruce Cameron lover If his name is on the cover I say get it and read it You won t be disappointed.

    I was very disappointed with this book I would read a couple of pages and think that I should just stop But I kept on and was glad I did It starts being a good book at about 45%.I disliked the first half of the book because it wasn t very well written The narrative jumped from tribe to tribe without any transition so I couldn t tell what was going on and couldn t maintain any interest in the story Mr Cameron ties everything together eventually but he takes a long time getting there I suspect that the jumping was a device he used to heighten suspense But it makes the story choppy and almost cost him a reader Also, none of the characters were at all sympathetic until the second half of the book.The second half of the book had a coherent narrative and the characters became engaging.The other thing I disliked may not bother most readers This is a book about very early humans However, they spoke in complex sentences about complex concepts I found this very jarring The other thing that bothered me is that Mr Cameron wrote the story the way most of us imagine it happened An early human works with a wolf puppy and develops a mutually rewarding relationship But in the last 15 years or so, fossil evidence has shown that wolves began to be domesticated at about the same time in China and Europe Researchers believe that this means that wolves basically domesticated us They speculate that some of them hung around our settlements and drove off other predators Early humans saw the value of this and reciprocated with food.Despite my criticisms, I do recommend this book After all, it s about canines Just remember that the first part of the book can be tough to get through.

    I was going to write a new review for this book, but instead I will share with you the fan letter I put on his website about his newest novel Dear Bruce,I am weeping tears of joy because I have just this minute finished reading The Dog Master I never for a minute expected it to surpass A Dog s Purpose in my heart, but it might have well, it s a dead heat and they are both so different from each other, I don t think they need to compete I want to share with you the two special gifts you have that I see in your writing You share with other writers the ability to tell a great story, make us fall in love with your characters, hold our breath waiting for the next turn in the tale and mourn the end of a book because we don t want it to end.However, you also have two things that are much rare First, you can insert humor into tragedy the way we find it in real life, without having to tell a joke I can laugh at the humanity of ridiculous behavior or illogical reactions of your characters The only other writer who does this as well, in my experience, is Charles Dickens How he can make us laugh during Oliver Twist s childhood, basically a story of child abuse, has always amazed me It gives us a sense of the underlying humor that can be found everywhere You have this same gift.Second, you can embody any character in a story, human or not, and describe its feelings and thoughts so perfectly that it enhances every tale I don t know how to describe this exactly, but you can even have us experience the death of a nameless elk as if we are feeling it ourselves It s as though you can flesh out a story from just being a story to something we all are living and breathing ourselves Of course, that was the basis for A Dog s Purpose, but you manage to do it with everything you write I don t know of any other writer who can do this, and it s why your books are so beloved, even if people don t realize why they love them so much.
