Amazon 11/11/19 FIVE STARS If you are a dog lover, this is a book for you. Loving, caring, touching, and surprisingly funny at times, Letters from Blitz explores the depths of our love for the man’s best friend. The book is a tribute to that unbroken bond that too often is cut short and we are left that unavoidable part of life, with grief. We don’t fully recover from it, but that’s ok. And, as the book shows, there are no shortcuts in this process, but the story of Blitz and his relationship with the author, offers a touching and intimate look at this deeply human emotion. As we begin to read trough the letters between Blitz, Lars, and Maggie, we soon find out that grieving is an emotion that, too, is familiar to our furry friends. This book is very endearing to me. I am in my fifth year of adventures with my Brittany Spaniel, and each year I learn something new about my dog and and about myself. If you truly want to understand what unconditional love is, this book is for you. It is an intimate account of love, and loss, but mostly, a celebration of that unbreakable bond between us and our furry friends. Amazon 11/9/19 FIVE STARS Those blessed with a canine companion for some period in their life will relate to the love and heartache touchingly addressed in this book. Dan Santos has written a deeply personal novel that serves both as a tribute to the loyal rascal Blitz and as a semi-epistolary tale exploring issues of ethics, suffering, devotion, and renewal. A lighthearted story that nevertheless takes its subject seriously. Amazon 11/06/19 FIVE STARS First, let me confess that I am a dog lover and a sucker for movies and stories about dogs, from Old Yeller to A Dog’s Purpose to Marley and Me. Well, Dan Santos’ new book, Letters from Blitz, ranks right up there with those stories. It’s a story of loss, love and redemption that will make you cry and laugh. I know, I’m a guy and not supposed to cry, but I did tear up in places. But don’t worry, in the end this is not a gloomy story. Anyway, if you love dogs, this is a must read. If you love cats, I still think you’ll love this story! And if you don’t love dogs, well, shame on you.
