A story of grief, loss, going crazy and finally getting on with life. Paul Iverson is convinced that if he can figure out how to teach his dog Lorelei how to speak, she will reveal to him the mystery of his wife Lexi’s death. Readers of psychological fiction will enjoy this one.

I enjoyed this book, upsetting at times but a great story. Steve Carell will play the lead roll in the movie in 2013, knowing this ahead of reading the book made it that much more enjoyable, picturing him as Paul Iverson.

This book is a little weird, but so good. I think it has been seriously overlooked by readers.
