Rin Tin Tin ... A Great Beach Read

By Getgoretro

Rin Tin Tin ... A Great Beach ReadWho didn't and doesn't love "Rin Tin Tin."  This is a wonderful book that I read in one night by Susan Orlean.  The book is well researched and if you loved the show, movies and love dogs in general ... this book is for you.  Full of interesting facts, people and history.  Funny, enlightening and sad as well.  The dog and owner were 2 lost souls who found each other and created television history.  You'll find out how Rin Tin Tin has lived on throughout the years.  A really, really great book.
He believed the dog was immortal. So begins Susan Orlean’s sweeping, powerfully moving account of Rin Tin Tin’s journey from abandoned puppy to movie star and international icon. Spanning almost one hundred years of history, from the dog’s improbable discovery on a battlefield in 1918 to his tumultuous rise through Hollywood and beyond, Rin Tin Tin is a love story about "the mutual devotion between one man and one dog" (The Wall Street Journal) that is also a quintessentially American story of reinvention, a captivating exploration of our spiritual bond with animals, and a stirring meditation on mortality and immortality.
