EARLY ACCLAIM FOR AN ANGEL WITH FUR:
5.0 out of 5 stars. Beautiful, gut wrenching, tear jerking,9 Oct 2011
This story touched me so deeply you wouldn’t believe possible. I laughed so hard and cried so much, it was as if Lobo was my very own dog. It oozes with unconditional love; any animal lover will thoroughly enjoy this story. Even those that don’t consider themselves as animal people; I find it hard to believed that they wouldn’t be touched by this. Whilst reading it I related to a similar experience I once had with one of my own pets, all of the same emotions shining beneath the writing so brightly. The writer has told this story in what I’d consider a very moving and powerful way, and I will be suggesting to every reader I know to give this a go. Sure to not disappoint.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Emotional Roller Coaster,October 7, 2011
An Angel With Fur is one of the best books I’ve read in years. What makes that amazing is that it’s the non-fiction story about a man and his dog. That isn’t the sort of thing I’d normally have expected to have me alternating between laughing out loud and bawling my eyes out, or feeling on the edge of my seat from suspense about. All I can say is that this is an amazing story told in a nearly miraculous way by a writer at the top of his game. It’s a book I know I’ll go back to and re-read at some point, and probably more than once. I can’t see anyone who owns a pet, or has ever lost someone they love, not being affected by this book. It’s really that good. I’m recommending it to everyone I know.
Inevitably any book about animals is going to be nostalgic, funny and sad. Animals grab our hearts and don’t let go.
For those who have read Russell Blake’s fiction, you will be very surprised. This is fact and tells us as much about Blake as about his dogs. I don’t want to be a spoiler, but I suggest you don’t read this on the train or anywhere with people around. It would be embarrassing if you burst into tears in public!
Russell Blake shows how versatile and talented he is with his new novel, An Angel With Fur. While it has his signature comedic writing, it’s also very heart wrenching as you learn the story of Russell’s amazing dog, Lobo. I laughed until I cried, and then I cried, I was so moved by the story. Blake does an amazing job of showing the reader the amazing grace of uncondtional love and unconditional acceptance. Don’t read it without a box of kleenex, because even the hardest hearted jerk will be moved.
