A Dog's Purpose

I've recently finished reading "A Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron.
This book was highly recommended by a co-worker, and I was not disappointed.  This fictional novel tells the story of a dog who finds himself reincarnated and decides there must be a reason, a purpose he must fulfill; and until he does so, he’ll continue to be reborn.  There is no shortage of similar books (Marley and Me, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Merle's Door), but this one stands head and shoulders above the rest.  It was easy to identify with the human characters, and the emotions "voiced" by the dog were engaging and realistic.  This would be fantastic summer beach reading!
