His writing is depp and insightful, some of the details are too graphic like the time he passed out drunk after winning the academi award, but I guess that happens to a lot of young actors.
This is the life of a performer, a dog of his craft, a pride and treasure to film making.
Rest In Peace Uggie!
Some parts will give you a knowing smile, for example the Binge-Gate and Goat-Gate episodes, the loss of his doghood, Uggie got drunk in a New Year's Eve party at home, his misdemeanours,...
Some are hideous, for example, the Cat-Gate episode.
Some are encouraging, for example, the auditions for "Water for Elephants" and "The Artist".
Some are worrisome, for example, Uggie's health.
Some are adventurous, for example, the trip to Mexico.
Some are heart-warming, for example, the bond between Uggie and his family (both in human and animal forms).
Some are amazing, for example, receiving the Golden Collar Awards and attending different social functions.
Throughout the book, you can feel the love and understanding between Uggie and Omar. Besides, the message of adopting animals is all around.
This book oppens a window into the life and soul of a little dog who became the star he was meant to be.
Humor, and some sadness too. It is all here. And the love between Uggie and his dad and trainer is the thread that holds the story together.
Anyone who loves movies, anyone who has ever loved an animal, read this book. It will melt your heart. It did mine.
I especially liked the fact that it was written from Uggie's point of view! I highly recommend this book to any animal lovers!!!
