Participating today in Booking Through Thursday--and the question is:
...what animal-related books have you read? Which do you love? Do you have a favorite literary dog? (Snoopy, anyone?)
You know, I probably haven't read a book specifically about an animal since I was a child.
However, I love the way Dean Koontz incorporates dogs into almost all of this books.
This from Wikipedia:
Koontz is an avid dog lover, and canines (typically an unusually smart Golden or Labrador Retriever) often feature prominently in his works: Fear Nothing, Seize the Night, The Taking, Watchers, Dark Rivers of the Heart, Dragon Tears, One Door Away from Heaven, Ticktock, Twilight Eyes (towards the end of the book) and The Darkest Evening of the Year are prime examples.
I can't fully recommend all Dean Koontz books, especially his earliest ones. The earlier ones can get a little crazy.
But many of them are terrific, suspenseful, and even thoughtful and insightful reads, and his portrayals of dogs are nothing short of loving.
