Book Review - Pureheart

Rita Hsu Syers
Bronwen Publishing (2009)
340 pages
Advance Readers Copy

Tedious, canine “preachy” and much too explanatory this book was very difficult for me to read (and honestly I didn’t get past page 60). The premise is interesting and could have been an action drama filled with interesting pacing and creative characters. But, unfortunately, it was not.

I have news for the author. (And please don’t bash me for not being an animal lover…) Not everyone in the world loves dogs, owns a dog or works with dogs. My word, every human in the book had dogs in common. But in the real world even if everyone you know owns a dog its not THE only thing they ever discuss. I do like animals and thought this story had some promise but the monotony turned me off almost from the start.

1 ½ out of 5 stars
