And the winner is…….. A Big Little Life by Dean Koontz. I have to say I’ve very excited that this was the book chosen, although all of them sounded great, something about this one really appealed to me. Here is the synopsis I posted about it earlier.
A Big Little Life – Dean Koontz
Author Dean Koontz always loved dogs (astute readers know that he populates his thrillers with them), but he didn’t fully realize the genius of the species until Trixie came into his life. In ways, this 68-pound golden retriever seemed to manifest Buddha-like virtues: a refreshing lack of vanity and an uncanny knack for living in the here-and-now. Though nominally retired as a Canine Companion service dog, good-natured Trixie continued to perform spontaneous good deeds. For Koontz, her gentle nuzzles were transformative, gradually modulating his workaholic ways down to a healthy balance. The soulful book about a short-lived canine companion might surprise those who have only secondhand acquaintance with Koontz’s fiction, but nobody with a heart will leave it disappointed.
What could be more appropriate for us than a book about “Trixie”…hehehe. The flyer below has all the details on our next meeting, so get your book and let’s get reading!!!
