Book Discussion on the Dog That Whispered by Jim Kraus
Book Discussion: Bestselling author Jim Kraus returns with a heartwarming tale about a dog who has people convinced he can talk. Wilson Steele is a single professor and Vietnam veteran who likes living alone, insisting it's too late for him to have a family. His mother disagrees. When she impulsively adopts a rescued black lab mix, she insists Thurman is special, and has whispered of the coming of grandchildren. Wilson brushes the notion off as fantasy. When his mother learns of her retirement community's 'no pets' policy, she forces Wilson to take the lovable dog. Wilson notices Thurman's growls do sound like words, but he knows he's just projecting his own thoughts on the animal. If Wilson is talking to neighbors on their walks, and spending time with Emily, a widow with three children, it isn't because Thurman encouraged him. After all, everyone knows dogs can't talk...can they? • What to bring Yourself Willing attitude to participate in the discussion • Important to know Come even if you do not read or finish the book. There will always be an opportunity for you to engage in the conversation :)

    What we're about

    Public Group

    After reading 'The Shack' by William P. Young, David Walker began this reading club to challenge himself to read (opposed to pacifying his mind with computers, TV, and movies). He was in the library club in elementary school, and he lost the joy of reading leisurely. 'The Shack' renewed his interest!! Most books he read can be read within a week for those who make reading a priority. With an abundance of obligations (i.e. church, work, school, [oh yeah... and self]), it took him a little longer to complete a novel. If this is your plight as well, join my quest for education. We'll meet at pre-determined location to discuss the book.

    The group is made up of people who like to read. All members are encouraged to come to the discussions even if you have not finished or read the book.
