The The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski is a very interesting story. Typically, I wouldn’t choose to read this novel but I am glad I did. The only reason that I picked up this book was because it was listed in Oprah’s book club list and this book was available in large print (easier to read while feeding a baby).
I had no idea about the effort required to train dogs and what an intelligent creatures they can be if trained right. I confess that I skipped a lot of details about dogs and their training in the book because it was just too much for me. Overall, I enjoyed the life-story of Edgar. The ending of this book is interesting as it leaves lots of questions unanswered. I felt little frustrated having read the entire book and not knowing exactly what did Claude do and why. On second thoughts, I like the ending because it’s like life where lots of questions are never answered.
