A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron Book Summary

A Dog’s Purpose—the #1 New York Times bestseller—is heading to the big screen! Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose, from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Britt Robertson, KJ Apa, John Ortiz, Peggy Lipton, Juliet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Pooch Hall and Dennis Quaid. A Dog’s Purpose is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland, TV’s Gilmore Girls). The film from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media will be distributed by Universal Pictures. Screenplay by W. Bruce Cameron & Cathryn Michon and Audrey Wells and Maya Forbes & Wally Wolodarsky.

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.

Bailey's story continues in A Dog's Journey, the charming New York Times and USA Today bestselling direct sequel to A Dog's Purpose.

Best book I've read in years. Would highly recommend! This book moved me emotions I haven't felt in 10 years or better. Great story, great twists and well deserved ending.

Best Dog Book Ever. "A Dog's Purpose" was the perfect book for me. I loved listening to what the dog thought and felt throughout the story. I recommend this book to anyone, especially animal lovers.

Really good book. I loved reading this book, it’s such a great story and very emotional and I really recommend it.

Soul Touching🥺🥺. This book had a variety of feelings. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me smile. I was speechless after reading this book.

Great!. I Loved this book!

Great book!. Great book!

Must read, heartwarming. I loved this book! I could not put it down, and I usually don’t like to read. I love that it’s from the view of the dog. It was such an original and heartwarming story.

Best book ever. I do not read books. I never have and I thought I never would. I actually started reading this book thinking it would help me get over the loss of my wonderful Maggie Mae who had just passed away after 15 precious years of being my best friend. I honestly thought the book was going to help me understand why the time we have with these wonderful and loyal companions is so short and I expected that it would help my heart stop hurting from the loss of my sweet and faithful companion who had helped me through so many things. I didn't expect the wonderful stories and emotions. I couldn't put the book down. You have to read both books to fully appreciate the sorry... But it is so worth it! I highly recommend any of these stories!

Great weekend read. Kept me interested throughout the story.

A Dog's Purpose. I actually surprised myself giving this book a 5 star rating considering I almost quit reading it because I just couldn't get into it. For some reason I couldn't get into the dog narrating talking about the pizza boxes he was eating, and the newspapers he was peeing on. Then, I made myself sit down and finish it. I'll tell you what, I cried and cried and sobbed hysterically. This story is SO touching and beautiful. I am the owner of a 18 month old Berner and he is my first dog... all I can say is, I hope Toby loves me as much as Bailey loved Ethan. Thanks for the amazing read.

Best book ever. I thought this book was the best book ever. It shows the emotion of the dog and humans. I recommend this book

For book lovers:. I’ve never read this but I just wanted to tell you something: don’t watch the movie! The dogs were abused and forced to do dangerous stunts! One dog chem drowned! Don’t ever watch or buy the movie because you’re supporting that! Just think about that when you watch the movie!

Beautiful story. I have read this book numerous times and I think the author has done a spectacular job writing this book 📖🐶😃🤩

The Best Book Ever!!. I read this book a long time ago, closer to when it first came out. While I don’t have the digital copy, I have the original paperback book, let me tell you this: This is quite possibly one of the best books you’ll ever read. It’ll make you laugh. It’ll make you grin from ear to ear. And it’ll make you sob like a baby. The new movie cannot even come close to the level of emotion that this books conveys. Read it. I promise you that you won’t ever regret it.

A dog purpose rocks my world. A dogs purpose is a great read for any age of readers- whether it's an older grandma reading it for a smile, a young child, or even pre-Teen, it is a beautiful story for all ages. This novel is something I will definitely recommend to a family member, or even a stranger. Read this book.

Great Book!. I really enjoyed this book because of the different perspectives between the dogs. It was a tear jerking novel and wished it kept going.

So cute!. Love this book

Phenomenal. The book gives you an insight to the perception of our world from a canine's standpoint. It's simplicity also helped. Definitely recommend.

Awesome Movie. Nice to watch a wholesome movie like this one!!

Couldn’t set it down!. Such a wonderful story of the life of a dog. It has brought me closer to my own dog and made me realize they probably know more of what’s going on then I once thought.

BEST EVER. I couldn't live without this book, that's all I can say. Oh and DONT WATCH THD MOVIE!!!! It totally ruined the book!!!!!!!! I'm warning u!!!!!!

Wooooooooooooof. It really Riad me of my old friend angus the lab😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Just 2 good to put down 😢😃. I started reading this after my bulldog had passed away and I would turn on the flashlight on my phone just to read this amazing story. I couldn’t wait to get back onto my feet after he was gone so I continued reading it. I just gotta say for those of you who love dogs and haven’t read it at all yet, it is amazing! 😀

Very good read.. It was so good that I read it all in six hours. There is definitely no regrets, and I will happily write my book report on this amazing book.

Best book ever. ;(

Great book. Great book, hopefully the movie won't disappoint.

Great. Great

A Dog. . . Friend for Life!. As someone who has loved, and been loved by a dog, l appreciate this special story on many levels. Highly recommended!

A Dog's Purpose. One of the very BEST books I've ever read in life!! I'd recommend this book to anyone!! Just terrific!! I want to read all books this author writes!!!

Great book, but tissues are needed throughout. I enjoyed the book. Clever writing and a unique perspective on dogs. However, dog lovers will cry - like Oprah's "ugly cry" and several parts. It's a rollercoaster ride of engine for sure

THE BEST (from 4th grade). I adore this book,it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read and this is coming from a fourth grader.The book got me so attached I wasn’t paying attention in math just thinking about it.If you love dogs like me,you’ll love this book.Tottaly recommend this book

One of my absolute favorites. When I see someone looking at this one in Costco or the bookstore, I butt in and tell them to buy it. If you ever loved a dog, read this book. Please.

GREAT. I love this book, it reminds me of my old Dog, Darcy❤️❤️ every time I lay eyes on it. But I would rather remember him than forget him.😢❤️

Oh my DOG. Heartbreaking and heartwarming. I read this in one day. I only put it down to dry my tears and hug my dogs. Oh how I loved this book.

Sad. Movie really sad

Amazing emotional book. This book makes you love your dog even more than you did before you read this book. I really really recommend reading this if you love dogs and animals! 💗💗💖

One of the best books I have ever read. A dogs purpose is one of the best books I've ever read it is heartwarming it made me cry laugh and after I read the book I spent an hour with my 🐶 I recommend you read it and you will agree with me!!!!!

Wonderful. Such a beautiful story of the importance of dogs in our lives.

A Dogs Purpose. I love this book. I am a dog lover and have a German shepherd myself. Love how it's the dogs narrating the story!!! Helps u understand some of the things your dog does too. Great story and characters can't wait to see the movie. My daughter actually got the book and I read it in a couple days. Couldn't put it down and when I had to I would just think about it and want to read more

A dog's purpose. A dog's purpose is such a good book and don't get me started on the movie the author did a great job 1 or 2 times I cried though (If you've read the book you'll know why) This book is AMAZING so ANYONE who is looking for a good book that will keep you hooked till the very last page! -Izzie (10)

I Almost Rated This 4 Stars. Sooo... I would say the first 4-5 chapters of this book were boring as HELL (at least for me). I was very close to picking up a new book, and I’m glad I didn’t do that, because stuff got really interesting. Anyway long story short the book is great but like I said, in my opinion the book in the beginning is kind of boring.

OMG❤️🔥. This is such an amazing book I read it all the time and when I finished it I read it all over. FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE IFFY ON REVIEWS TRUST ME THIS IS AMAZING!!!!! This is LIT AF❤️🔥 please read and write a review because I'm 100% sure you'll say the same thing about this book!!

Beautiful Read. Loved every minute of this book! Full of happiness and sadness! So many tears I can't wait to read A Dogs Journey next!

Amazing empathy. This is an incredibly moving, well written story, but what I liked the best about it was the incredible clarity into the mind of a dog, everything rings so true, it's hard to imagine that this isn't how they think, how they feel, how they love us and how little we, with our incredible human abilities don't often really understand them. Except when we do. Unforgettable.

Verrrry good. Love it

Best book ever. when I first got this book. I could not stop reading it. Best book ever. I still keep reading it and still enjoy it. Now I'm planning on get A Dogs Journey.

Kard1954. The story is quite entertaining however, I found the book very difficult to follow almost juvenile in the writing itself. Very difficult to follow and bounces around without finishing thoughts. Ideas are left mid air and leave you re-reading sentences. Which is very unfortunate as, the actual story is quite intriguing, I wish more research was done into the science of dog body language etc. #plumreview

You will love your dog more after reading this book. I just reread this book to prepare reading the sequel, a dog's journey. I enjoyed a dog's purpose even more in my second time reading. The wonderful feelings, described from a dog's perspective, towards humans are full of pure love and loyalty. If you have a dog, you will understand why you want to hug your dog more after reading this book.
