The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamant
Scribner Book, 2005
Fiction; 263 pgs
The Last Days of Dogtown is the story of a small New England backwater town on its last legs during the early 1800’s. This is more so the stories of some of the eccentric people who once lived there, their histories, fates and relationships with each other. Anita Diamant has a gift for creating characters that worm their way into the hearts of the readers and take root. Although the book got off to a slow start, I enjoyed it quite a bit in the end. This was a touching book that seemed to be made up more about character stories than an actual novel itself.

[I am really sad I did not record more of my thoughts about The Space Between Us as I utterly loved the book. It was one of my favorite reads of 2005.]
