Pack of Two: The Intricate Bond Between People and Dogs
Pack of Two: The Intricate Bond Between People and Dogs
von Caroline Knapp
  Gebundene Ausgabe

3.0 von 5 Sternen A good writer but the book did not hold me, 31. Dezember 1999
I bought PACK OF TWO because I thought the description of the book's premise: a 30-something woman without lover or family finds happiness in her dog. And I could tell by peeking at the book's end that Knapp was a bright, feeling author. But I found that as I moved through the chapters, the author made the same point over and over. If she feels that her relationship with her dog is great for most of the book -- where is the drama in that? If she questioned her attachment to her dog more, it might have been more persuasive for me.
I was glad by Chapter 7 she dealt the how her pet came between she and her boyfriend in a less than healthy way. But it made me want to hear more dialogue from the boyfriend to hear his point of view of Knapp's attachment to her dog. I wanted conflict and drama -- and that isn't possible when you let only one voice speak.
