This book deals with some pretty horrific subject matter that I had been previously unaware of. This story is, as the cover suggests, about a man and his dog. Greg Smith does a great job making the dog, Shadow, a main character. The development and the way Smith navigates us to love this animal is truly masterful storytelling.
Captain Cramer is Shadow's companion and as a Marine he is a compelling character of strength, fortitude, and a willingness to do what is right. I very much enjoyed his part in this book. He is an outstanding main character and an hero who has the understanding of right and wrong to his core.
This book is at times difficult to read because of the tough subject matter but I encourage you to read on and get past the parts that make your heart hurt because the story is really a special one.
