Review: Heroic Measures: A Novel

Heroic Measures: A Novel
Heroic Measures: A Novel by Jill Ciment

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who doesn't like a story about a dachshund?

This was a quick read and thoroughly enjoyable. Ciment is a gifted writer and has a way of capturing regular day-to-day activities in an interesting way. I also loved the way the book incorporated the dog's view (an aging dachshund) with that of it's owners, Alex and Ruth.

I would recommend Heroic Measures as a fun, well-written little book that wraps you up in the lives of an elderly couple and their little dog over a short weekend.
