Reviews for Big Little Life : A Memoir of a Joyful Dog

AudioFile Web Reviews
Was she really an angel? The author swears his golden retriever, Trixie, was just that. In a joyful tribute to a joyful dog, the master of the mysterious, Dean Koontz, recounts the arrival of a retired service dog into his household, and the profound changes she wrought in the lives of those who loved her. Koontz's gentle narration makes up in sincerity what it lacks in polish. The self-effacing tone of his prose comes through clearly in his quiet voice, as do the overwhelming love and admiration he gives to Trixie without reservation. Anyone who has been blessed with the love of a remarkable dog will be captivated by this touching story. R.L.L. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
