Well, I must admit, I am the absolute prime audience for this book as not only a dog owner, but a pit-lover as well. This was a wonderful book! The writer did a lovely job of juxtaposing the life of a man and the life of a dog. She really worked to equate their lives, and it definitely worked. She evoked emotions and her plot, though slow to start, was riveting by the end. And while I think the pit bull has become a bit of a fad dog to promote their inherent goodness (and don't get me wrong, they are good dogs!), Wilson did a good job of making a beauty of the beast that society has also declared the pit bull to be. The chapters from the dog's point-of-view were a bit lacking in credibility, but all of the emotions raised in the book were quite genuine, which more than made up for her constantly pushing how similar this man and his dog were. Really, it was just a lovely book.
