I picked up this book when it was free at Amazon.
I really wasn't expecting that much...I certainly did not expect such a well written story.
This story rang true for me in many different ways... the stories regarding addiction, the information on what really happens at local pet shelters, even the family dynamics of some of the characters. I think this book was interesting and (again) very well written. I'm going now to go see if he has written any others.
Noted: Since I wrote this review the author has released a second edition, so I removed my comments regarding editorial issues.
