    Okay... I hope this is kool to discuss non-screenwriting books.

    I tried to read my sister's copy of this book, in part because Stephen King said he liked it a lot in the back cover blurbs...

    I got about halfway through, not getting the book at all. I think I've been cured of any impulse to buy a dog, what with the staggerring mounds of trivial detail about how the lead character's dogs stood, sat, ate, pooped, scratched, stood and ate again.

    It's like a documentary about raising dogs.

    What am I missing? There's like 90 pages with no stakes. How did anyone make it to the mystery part of the story?
