Book Review of “A Dog’s Purpose” by W. Bruce Cameron

Well, I told you I was going to do some different things and read some different books this year, and here is another one.  “A Dog’s Purpose,” by W. Bruce Cameron, was a fun read and a great book with some real life lessons.

On a recent long trip, I read all the real books I had packed and needed another one, so I wandered into a book seller at one of the airports I was in and came across this one to read on the way up and down when I have to turn off my kindle.

I’m glad I picked this one up.

Without revealing the whole story, this book is about one dog’s journey through multiple lifetimes finding it’s (I say it because it the dog had different names and experienced being both male and female throughout the story) purpose each time.

This book made me laugh and it made me cry, it was sad and happy, but it also made me think about how so many of us strive and look and push trying to find our life purpose when it might be as easy as what the dog found multiple times in this great story.

Maybe, just maybe, our purpose is as simple as that we all are here to love unconditionally, to get along and to make the best of our circumstances, while striving to be the best we can be.

To Love And Be Love…seems like a pretty good purpose to me.

How about you?
