Book Club: The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

I’m about halfway through this novel, which is a re-telling of Hamlet but set in Wisconsin and with dogs instead of royalty. (I don’t mean that the characters are replaced by dogs – but that there are ALSO dogs in addition to humans.)  I’ve been enjoying it so far but have reached a part of the story that’s rather dark and hopeless. That’s too close to my actual mood right now so I went to the Wikipedia page to make sure something good is still coming up in the story. I can’t remember exactly how Hamlet ends except I think everyone dies so I hope that’s not what I’m in for – but for now I can keep reading.

Update:   Book finished. I cried, for reals. That rarely happens.
