WHAT I WOULD RATE THIS BOOK IF GOODREADS WOULD LET ME: 2.5 stars.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE STORY: Animal doctor stuff, human doctor stuff, family stuff, father-son stuff, hunting and swimming, and the occasional possible spaceship sighting.
WHAT I COULDN'T DECIDE WHILE READING IT: If the unusual format was helping or hurting the story.
WHAT I SAW COMING A MILE AWAY: There's a reveal in the novel that I guessed at way early on, so I didn't really feel the emotion of it that I might have had it been more of a surprise.
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK: Some of the stories of treating the animals, some of the main character's preoccupations, stuff the kids say, the house talking, the rabbit in diapers.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT IT: Due to the format and the way events came up so suddenly, there was a certain sense of detachment I felt while reading. Also found the random, multiple f-bombs unnecessary.
WHAT I COULD HAVE BEEN DOING INSTEAD OF READING THIS BOOK: Sleeping.
THE CALL: Simple story with some nice moments and messages ultimately overshadowed by the style.
