David Wroblewski ✓ 4 review Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ David Wroblewski characters The Story of Edgar Sawtelle Born mute speaking only in sign Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin For generations the Sawtelles have raised and trained a fictional breed of dog whose thoughtful companionship is epitomized by Almondine Edgar's lifelong friend and ally But with the unexpected return of Claude Edgar's paternal uncle turmoil consumes the Sawtelles' once peaceful home Whe. I m torn I m torn between giving this book 5 stars and 1 star The book is very thought provoking It is well written and very evocative of the time early 70 s and the place far northern Wisconsin This was a book that I had a hard time putting down and indeed I stayed up too late several nights and played hooky on chores an entire afternoon so I could read it instead I would give the first 500 pages five stars and the last 66 pages one starI went into this book thinking it was a YA type and this may be one of the downfalls of a Kindle you can t tell how really long a book is or else I don t yet have the right feeling for interpreting the dots that show how far you ve read in a book ButYes it s a story about a 13 year old mute boy living on a dog farmbreeding kennel in the early 70 sYes it s a coming of age storyYes it s everything that sounds like a really good boydog animal story should beButThink again This book is a tragedy than anything else It s what you might get if you crossed Hamlet or King Lear with Old Yeller The ending is very heavy on the Shakespearian side of the scale If I wasn t reading on an electronic device I might have thrown the book across the room after finishing the last paragraph I felt so cheated by the ending I wanted a happy ending or at the very least redemption feeling good and that s not where I am At all Right now I really wish there was someone else around who had read it so I could talk about itI thought this was going to be a warm fuzzy boy his dog coming of age story that would be a fun summer read It s not this book is a tragedy pure but not simple The I think about it the connections I am finding to King LearEdit From the author this is actually a retelling of Hamlet
