Book review – Until Tuesday

on January 31, 2012

Finally finished reading “Until Tuesday” by Luis Carlos Montalvan.
This is the story of a service dog and how he changes the life of wounded war veteran, Luis. It actually took me a while to get “into” this book, for some reason – it may possibly have something to do with the descriptions of the war time activities that needed to be said, but really didn’t interest me at this time; in saying that, however, the book did remind me in a way of another “dog lover” book titled Emma and I, from my high school reading list.

It was an encouraging and uplifting story about how a simple thing like owning a dog (well, a special service dog!) can bring so much joy and brightness and “life” to someone’s life, who was struggling before the dog came into their life.
I guess in a world of war and war stories, this is something positive to come from it all and is worth a read if you like encouraging stories.
