Book Review: Dog, a short novel

by Michelle Herman

Partial synopsis from Good Reads:  Single, childless, J.T. Rosen?a poet and college professor who has failed to live up to her early promise?has constructed a careful, orderly life around her work and the little house she has lived in alone for many years. Long ago, after a tumultuous youth filled with the ?Sturm und Drang of boys and men, ? she gave up on the possibility of love; she has begun by now, in the Middle Western town she cannot bring herself to think of as home, to give up on the possibility of friendship. When the dog enters her life, almost by accident he takes over her life, as puppies do.

My thoughts:  I so seldom say this, I feel kind of mean.  This book just wasn't really for me.  I did not relate to the main character or to her neighbors, and frankly, felt sorry for the dog.  Oh, well.  On to the next book.

What are you reading?
