It reads simply but not childishly, describing a dog's body language and their language itself and what it could mean. Quick read. Couple of helpful hints. I was hoping it would have a magic section on how to get your dog to stop barking at everybody, but I discovered the cure at least for my little miniature tooodle? perrier?. I was in the car waiting to pick up my daughter after a football game at her high school (I support the team distantly). My little dog would not shut up and they were turning into piercing barks. "STRANGERS!! OH MY GOSH THERE'S ANOTHER ONE!!! LOOK MORE STRANGERS!!! UGH!!!" all in dog. I kept trying to calm her and finally circled her muzzle gently with my thumb and forefinger, saying in a low voice, "No barking." She start again, I'd put my fingers around her muzzle and say in a low, calm voice, "No barking." After about 20 times, she started to get it. There were some mumbling growly noises, but not the crazy barking. So, maybe I should write a book! "Carolyn Experiments on Her Dog". (less)

I liked Devi more in this book than the others. I loved the ending especially, how she just wants what she had always wanted even with the world at her fingertips. And that included that special someone.
Okay, this rating is just of my reaction to this book. I would give it one star but that's not fair. I don't even think 2 stars is fair but...moreSPOILERS!!!
Okay, this rating is just of my reaction to this book. I would give it one star but that's not fair. I don't even think 2 stars is fair but it's how I feel about this book. Robert is awful, I hate him. And Kathy is stupid to take him back again after he's done it once already. Stephanie is an awful whore who thought only about herself. If he leaves his wife first, then you can see if it will work but to have an affair with a married man or woman is being a huge slut. I feel that women should commiserate with each other on how hard it is to keep a relationship going. And knowing that, there should be compassion for each other. If the man or woman you are interested is married, then they should be off limits. If they leave their relationship, that's different. But if they're lying to the other party, then as a person with feelings, with kindness, with love for your fellow man, you should not start a relationship at all. And if you do, God or Karma or whatever will get you. I truly believe this. You cannot throw out pain and not expect to come unscathed. You cannot do that and not have some kind of retribution. You're causing pain and heartache for someone and I just can't understand ignoring that. Make the person leave who they're with if they're unhappy and want to be with you. Start from that. I just don't understand how women can do that to each other.
So, off my soap box. I hated the book because of my own personal feelings about betrayal.(less)
