    This was weird - but heartbreaking.

    This was one of those books that once you read it, you found yourself in a daze as if waking up from a dream and wanting more. I read this book in one sitting and loved it. I agree that at some points the story dragged a bit, but it did not dent the story at all.

    This is one of the weirdest love stories I have ever come across. It starts off with the birth of Cougar. The unusual circumstances the synopsis refers to is that Cougar was the result of his father's bestiality with a cow.

    Born with birth defects, he lives a quiet life on the family farm - hidden from the outside world. But like any other teenager he wants more from life.

    The story is set in a picturesque little town in the 1960s and is reminiscent of an easier time - which makes the ending all that much sadder. Have a box of tissues handy when you read this book as it will leave you with flowing waterfalls from your eyes.

    Peculiar and sad...


    What can I say? This book was very strange and heartbreaking at the same time. I simply cannot get this sad and doomed love story out of my mind. I found myself dreaming about this book last night - which I guess is a good thing.

    Unique but really strange

    While I cant say this book made me an instant fan of the author the story was good. It dragged quite a bit for me and I found myself scanning pages more and more but I did want to know how it ended. Have tissues on hand and prepare for a crazy journey with Cougar

    This book made me an Eduard Joseph fan. I read it while it was still new on amazon and  LOVED it.
    It is the strangest and saddest love story i have ever read - a real departure from his other works that
    focuses more on mystery and the supernatural.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a strange but beautiful book.

    This is a train wreck

    The author has wriiten the weirdest story and I wanted to post a truthful review. I cannot understand all of the excellent ratings. I hoped for a twist to make it better, but only got worse. Good riddence, do not waste your time on this!
