I finished this book over Thanksgiving, and the ending made me so angry that I had a nightmare about it!
I enjoyed most of it (and it was long!), as it was a story of a boy that was born mute and his family – that raised Sawtelle dogs. But then the uncle comes back into town, and bad, bad things happen. He is a bad man with a dark heart. Blah. And the mom – she should have picked Edgar above everything! Even now, I can’t think too much about it, as it makes me so mad!
Anyway, I guess life is not fair, but this book was really not fair in it’s ending. Yarbs also did not like the ending, and I was mad that she didn’t warn me. Warn me not to read it! She really thought the ending was a cop-out ending. Which I agree with, but it seemed to affect me more than her – luckily she didn’t have a nightmare about it!
Ugh, am reading a pretty good historical fiction now… will review once I am finished.
