Reviews

'I flat-out loved "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle", and spent twelve happy evenings immersed in the world David Wroblewski has created. As I neared the end, I kept finding excuses to put the book aside for a little, not because I didn't like it, but because I liked it too much; I didn't want it to end. It's a novel about the human heart, and the mysteries that live there, understood but impossible to articulate. I closed the book with that regret readers feel only after experiencing the best stories: It's over, you think, and I won't read another one this good for a long, long time.

'In truth, there's never been a book quite like "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle". I thought of "Hamlet" when I was reading it (of course...and in this version, Ophelia turns out to be a dog named Almondine), and "Watership Down", and "The Night of the Hunter", and "The Life of Pi" - but halfway through, I put all comparisons aside and let it just be itself.

'I'm pretty sure this book is going to be a bestseller, but unlike some, it deserves to be. Wonderful, mysterious, long and satisfying: readers who pick up this novel are going to enter a richer world. I envy them the trip. I don't re-read many books, because life is too short. I will be re-reading this one.' Stephen King
