Soon to be a Major Motion Picture!

Audiences are invited along on A Dog's Journey, the next chapter of the beloved bestselling series by author W. Bruce Cameron. The family film told from the dog’s perspective serves as the much-anticipated follow-up to the soulful story of one devoted dog who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love.

After searching for his purpose through several eventful lives, Buddy is sure that he has found and fulfilled it. Yet as he watches curious baby Clarity get into dangerous mischief, he is certain that this little girl is very much in need of a dog of her own.

When Buddy is reborn, he realizes that he has a new destiny. He's overjoyed when he is adopted by Clarity, now a vibrant but troubled teenager. When they are suddenly separated, Buddy despairs—who will take care of his girl?

Directed by Gail Mancuso (TV’s Modern Family, Roseanne), A DOG’S JOURNEY is once again produced by Gavin Polone (A Dog’s Purpose, Zombieland). Mancuso directs from an adapted screenplay by Cameron & Cathryn Michon and Wally Wolodarsky & Maya Forbes, based on the book by Cameron. The film from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media will be distributed by Universal Pictures.

A charming and heartwarming story of hope and unending devotion, A Dog’s Journey is the moving story of unwavering loyalty and a love that crosses all barriers.

When I reviewed W. Bruce Cameron's A Dog's Purpose I said that it is one of the top 3 or 4 books I've ever read in my over fifty years of being an avid reader -- and possibly my all-time favorite! So, just prior to starting A Dog's Journey, Cameron's sequel to A Dog's Purpose, I was concerned about being disappointed because I didn't see how it could come close to being as good. Then, I read the book, which took me a while to finish since the water build-up in my eyes got heavier and heavier the closer I came to the end. Could that water build-up have been tears? I don't know what it was but all I know is that I wished my glasses had wipers attached to them. My bottom line opinion of A Dog's Journey is that, as hard as it may seem to believe, it is even better than A Dog's Purpose! I can't recommend this book highly enough to all dog lovers or anyone who will allow themselves to feel all of the emotions associated with life (and death). Do yourself a favor and consider A Dog's Journey a MUST read. However, if you haven't already read A Dog's Purpose, I'd highly recommend you read it before A Dog's Journey in order to get the maximum enjoyment from the latter. Just as in my review of A Dog's Purpose, I won't summarize the plot even a little bit because the potential reader will want to experience every aspect of this terrific book without any advance information of what you will experience as you read it. I think the following information from the jacket cover pertaining to the essence of A Dog's Journey should suffice. This is a charming and heartwarming story of hope, love and unending devotion. It asks the question: Do we take care of our pets, or do they take care of us? More than just another endearing dog tale, A Dog's Journey is the moving story of unwavering loyalty and a love that crosses all barriers. The thought that sums up A Dog's Journey for me in one sentence is: Good golly Miss Molly, you are a true Buddy to the Max! While I know this thought may seem ambiguous now, I think you'll fully understand and agree with it once you have read A Dog's Journey. Well, that's all I'm going to say about this very, very memorable book, which hopefully will be enough to motivate you to read it. I know you'll feel totally enriched with the emotional journey it will take you on. Be forewarned, however, that you'll need to have a box of tissues close by as you read it! Now, just as I did when I finished A Dog's Purpose, I have to go hug my dog, Luigi, and tell him what a good boy he is and give him all the love he deserves.

I read A Dog's Purpose shortly after it's publication in 2010. I have anxiously awaited the release of A Dog's Journey for months. What a great story! I felt like I was reunited with an old friend. Yes, there are tears, laughter, sadness and many heartwarming moments....and again, middle of the night reading because I couldn't put the book down. Bruce Cameron has a gift, the storyline keeps evolving and you feel like you're flowing along with it. I have no idea how someone writes like this. The story is told in the voice of the dog, I imagine it takes a lot of effort to not reveal full details of what is happening for the characters of the story. We find out later in the story, the detail of what has been happening at times when Molly/Max/Toby isn't with CJ. As with A Dog's Purpose, you will look into the eyes of your dog and wonder.....

When I first read the cover of this book, I knew that it was a must have. Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. Whenever somebody asked me a question or was trying to start a conversation, I couldn't do anything but ignore them. The author of this book has such an amazing talent in the writing field. It had a habit of telling every detail and then going through the years in one page. My all time favorite book WAS A Dog's Life by Anne M. Martin. But now, this is the best book I have ever read in all of my lifetime on Earth. As the dog (I'm not saying a particular name because the dog keeps getting re-born with different genders and names) takes me through this adventure chasing Clarity and telling every detail, it feels like I'm actually there. When it's happy, I'm happy. When it's sad, I'm sad. Though, at the end I had to stop evey five minutes to take a break from all of the crying, I still enjoyed the book VERY MUCH and would recommend it to ANYBODY! Me myself wished I never read it so I won't know what's going to happen next. I will defiantly be reading this again throughout my life. Not only am I sobbing from th sadneess, I'm also sobbing that it's over! After reading this review I would go and click that purchase button right away! What touched my heart the most is that nomatter what, getting re-born or having a different size and/or gender, that dog never stopped chasing what he wanted (which was for Clarity to be safe and happy) He was a front-seat, trustworthy, angel, genius, google dog, but most of all, an example of the PERFECT dog. This book will be in my memories forever and a great start of a book to read on my new NOOK! Do me a favor all you dog lovers out there, and read this. Read this and never forget it as long as you live.

I am a huge dog lover. Always have been, always will be. After growing up with dogs, and living with roomies who had dogs of their own, I finally got my own when I bought my house. She is a husky-mix (rescue dog) and her name is Gia (because she could totally be a super-model). I absolutely love her and I hope she can stay with me forever. When I read Mr. Cameron’s A Dog’s Purpose I immediately fell in love with the voice, the writing style and the story. Not everyone can pull off writing from a dog’s point-of-view and make it both genuine and believable. As soon as I finished, I forced all of my fellow dog-loving friends to read it. When I found out that he was writing a follow-up, I didn’t think twice before requesting an ARC. I was curious to see how he would continue Buddy’s story. I was not disappointed. In this installment, the story picks up right after A Dog’s Purpose. After going through several “lives” (as a mutt, a Golden Retriever, a German Shepherd and finally a Black Lab), Buddy finally feels he has served his purpose. He found his “boy” and stayed with him until he passed away an old man. In this installment, Buddy is certain he has fulfilled his duties and is ready to “pass on”, but before he does so, he bonds with his “boy’s” granddaughter, Clarity. Much to Buddy’s surprise, he is reborn yet again in the form of a poodle mix and is adopted by a troubled, teenage Clarity. As in the first book, I once again found myself laughing out loud, and getting misty-eyed as I tore through the pages of A Dog’s Journey. It made me wonder as I was reading if maybe Gia is a reincarnated version of one of my dog’s I’d loved in the past, and I found myself giving her frequent hugs and pats on the head as I read the book. If you want a fun, light and heartwarming story, I would definitely check this series out. Even if you’re not much of a dog lover, or never owned a dog, I think you’ll enjoy seeing life through a dog’s eyes.

I enjoyed reading this book as much as Mr. Cameron's first in the series "A Dog's Purpose". You should read the first one to get all the background of the dog's lives. I could not put it down and it was so easy to read it just flows nicely. Both books are on my re-read list. I am a dog lover having had up to 4 Labs at one time and so I can relate. I often have wonder about where they were before they came to be my family. I highly recommend this to every pet lover out there.

I pre-ordered this book in April 2012 after just finishing the first book, "A Dog's Purpose" and I couldn't wait for it to come out. I nearly read it "cover-to-cover" in one sitting. These two books are the best I've read in a long time....and this coming from someone who reads over 100 books a year. Could there ever be a 3rd???

Great follow up to A Dog's Purpose. Easy writing style draws you in from page 1. As a pet owner, I ws emotionally connected to the characters, but this book is a great read for anyone! Really enjoyed the story and how all of thd characters were intertwined-the world really is a small place!

Anyone who gave this book less than the five stars it deserves has never really conneccted with their furry friend! Cameron has got a gift for making the dog so personable that you won't be able to put his work down!!! The vivid writing and my ability to compare it to my own pooches made me a believer. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I did! I would recommend that you read "A Dog's Purpose" first, so you are up to speed on the story.

I thought this book brought me and others to realize how important `man's best friend' really is. I hope all of you enjoyed this book as much as I did. My that dog rest in peace with his loved ones.

"A Dog's Journey" lives up to "A Dog's Purpose", and all I will say so as not to ruin the story for anyone who has not read it is: Best Ending Ever!!! I can't recommend these two books highly enough. They are "un-put-downable", and will be one of the few books I will re-read again and again.
