For all the hype this book recived I really didn't think it lived up to the expectations I had. I found the relationship and time spent at Henry's very interesting, as well as Edgar's relationship and bonds he had with dogs, however, a lot of the book didn't ever really seem to conjoin properly together. I just found the time and effort spent on describing all the training of the dogs just a series of floating information. The information on the origin of the dog breed was interesting, but dragged on for far to long. I felt the book could have been more effective if consolidated. I felt that it was more a series of short stories he had written on the same charachter and combined them all into one novel, with out really considering how to properly string them together.
