I personally fell in love with this book and all the simple symbolism. It is hard to read at first but once you dive into the authors psyche you experience more then just a plot you feel his soul. Its deff a good read for a more intuitive feeling based individual. Anyway, i though the book was really good.
It is hard for me to describe Funeral For A Dog since I haven't never read something like this. A journalist is sent out to interview a reclusive children's book author. Daniel (the journalist) tells his story as though they are journal entries and sometimes goes off on tangents. The author's story is told as though he is writing a book. And somehow these two meet and write about the same things differently. Does that make sense? It was not an easy read and certainly not for everyone, including myself.
