Charlie: A Love Storyby Barbara Lampert★★★☆☆
Charlie was the perfect dog, loving, devoted and Barbara’s best friend. Barbara loved dogs but the connection she had with Charlie was deeper and more intimate than the connection she had with any of her other dogs. When Charlie was eleven years old, he got really sick but fought to stay alive. Charlie endured a lot but because of his love for life and Barbara, he never gave up.
This was a heartfelt book that evoked some strong emotions, especially being a dog owner. The connection that the author had with Charlie and her other dogs, were beautiful and unique. I have never had a connection with an animal like that. Her dogs were like children to her; especially Charlie and she treated them more like humans than dogs. I thought that was really special and am glad animals can have people love them and take care of them like that when some are not that lucky.
I’m honestly not a non-fiction reader so this book was a little more difficult for me to get into reading, which is not the books fault. I like animals and thought I would try something a little different from my traditional read when I was asked to review it. The story was written in journal entries, which also took a while for me to get used to. It was well written and an honest account of the love between Charlie and the author who also struggled to make the right choices for Charlie.
It was a beautiful story that pulled at the heartstrings and people who love dogs and are non-fiction readers will love this book.
