Book Review | Men and Dogs

Title: Men and Dogs: A Novel

Author: Katie Crouch

My Review:

Men and Dogs is a great story.  You’ll love it (at least I did) the characters, the storyline, the twists and turns all combine to make the novel real and compelling. Hannah, the main character, has major character flaws, but they make her all the more likable.

Family secrets, a long-lost love, infidelity, you name it, it’s all part of the package.  The splendid, charming, unforgettable package.  I found lines like these enchanting: poppy lip prints on a highball glass and, after his dog is put to sleep, At that moment, sobbing by the body of his lifeless dog, Palmer understood that while vets help animals, really they save people.  Katie Crouch has a real gift for capturing South Carolinian ambience, and your attention.  I’ll be looking for more of her books, that I can tell you.

I thoroughly enjoyed Men and Dogs, a journey of self-exploration and resolution.  Believe it or not, I found myself running errands as much as possible in order to listen to these CDs in the car.  What a treat!
