If you search Google for “Edgar Sawtelle” I come up somewhere halfway down the second page of results. So I don’t know how so many people are finding my short review of it, and commenting, even weeks after I wrote it. But I’m somewhere between pleased and thrilled, even though not every comment is positive. This is not your typical summer read and it’s not your typical book about dogs, but it’s also not your typical pretentious novel that I’d recommend to someone. It’s a gripping story that’s also thought-provoking, and that’s really difficult to do.
