Reviews for The Dog That Talked to God
Wished I Could Have Liked It More
I had hoped I would like this book better than I did, but unfortunately, it was not to be. I love dogs, and the beginning of the book was fine. However, once our heroine had Rufus (the dog) "talk," I really lost interest. I know that we tend to think that our animals talk, but this was just too much for me to accept.
There were some points of the book that did interest me. I was intrigued when Mary first got Rufus. And then about the middle of the book, there was an area that certainly got my attention. And her entire discussion of her love life and views on dating were pretty intriguing.
I really struggled with the fact that she continued to have Rufus pray to God for her. Eventually, that stops, but I felt like Mary never truly finds her faith again. The gospel message is truly lost in this book. It is neat that God brings along "signs" to show her that she is doing the right thing.
The book is clean, and the message is pure. For that reason alone, many people will probably enjoy the book. Rufus is certainly a cute, smart dog, but I just struggled to truly embrace this book.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine. by Ruth Hill
