it was amazing
Read in August, 2011

This book is absolutely fantastic! I was a huge fan of "A Dog's Purpose," written by the same author, and I can say without reservation that this one is every bit as satisfying. I am always nervous when an author I like decides to go in a different direction like this, but "Emory's Gift" is proof in my eyes that this author has more stories to tell. Personally, I'll be reading W. Bruce Cameron novels as long as he writes them.

Truthfully, my opinion may be somewhat biased because I have recently begun helping to administer a facebook fanpage for ADP, but I think it just goes to show how wonderful this book really is.

As for this book, it was an unexpected treasure. It hooks you from word one, immediately interesting, keeping your interest throughout and leaves you yearning for more. It is the type of book that you'll contemplate re-reading the moment you finish. Like his last one, this book is a joy to read, the characters are very real and easy to connect with, and by the end you'll feel the way you do after a long vacation; it is refreshing and moving, you'll laugh and cry and you'll return to your life with a new and wonderful perspective. It reminds me of the books that first got me hooked on reading as a young man. Novels like "Ender's Game" and "Catcher in the Rye" come to mind. It takes a book of exceptionally high quality and readability to get someone reading at that time of life, and this one is of that caliber, without a doubt. I wish I had a young person to buy it for! Do yourself a favor and buy two copies of "Emory's Gift." One to keep for yourself and one to give away, you won't regret it.

Linda  Van Wert I was afraid to read this book because I thought it might be about a bear dying. Well, I was wrong and thoroughly enjoyed reading it after the author convinced me it would be a wonderful story.

Laura Guilbault W Bruce Cameron is my favorite author! Did you know that "A Dog's Journey" is the sequel to "A Dog's Purpose"? The ending is sad and touching.

Linda  Van Wert Yes, I have read both books! I am going to read his new novel as soon as I finish the book I am reading now!

Awesome! I'm currently reading Emory's gift and I love it so far, and I'm hoping to get one of his new ones, "The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man", for my birthday next week.

Linda  Van Wert I hope it will be a really good book! 8 am going to download this novel on my Nook!
