I was a bit disappointed in this book. He mostly writes about Lionel Trains in which he owns the company and that he has enjoyed them all his life. He discusses how he designed his own Lionel Town and what it can do. It sounds very large with trains ...more

I loved this book. It is written through the eyes of a dog. The dog belongs to a family and writes of his observations within the family. It is a quick read and such a sweet story. If you love dogs you must read!

I read this in school so long ago I barely remember it. I know I liked it. I must read it again. It is rated as one of the top 100 greatest novels of all time so go ahead and give it a go.

I read 21% through the book and I got so sick and tired of Humbert Humbert pining for Lolita. Just wasn't right. It grossed me out. I don't want to read about a peodophile. So I just gave up. Maybe I'll pick it up later when I have a thicker skin.
