User reviews about the book
What a wonderful story of how one’s life can change unexpectedly. The bond created between you and Gobi reaffirms the belief that animals play such an important part in our lives without a spoken word.
Story of Gobi a must read!
Wonderful, heartwarming story of one man’s journey of love and healing! His own salvation woven into saving this little dog. A must read!
As an animal lover, it’s difficult for me to read any book about the drama that plays out on the pages of such book, and then think critically to review it. And I do read lots of them! But I am happy to say that this book covers many journeys at once: addressing the world of ultra marathons, the political and cultural tensions inside China, the international human dynamics made possible by the internet, the precious nature of human beings sharing their culture with an outsider, and the intricacies of the human/animal bond. Love, generosity, longing, learning, the deepening of self-knowledge and understanding are tempered with the experience of fear, suspicions, cultural taboos and tensions, communications gaps, heartache, pain and loss. It is true to life, and to the great adventure that life can be!
Humanity still exists
Being the lucky owner of three rescues, this pulled me in from the moment I read the description on Amazon. As my dogs do for our family so to do I hope they will for their family. Gobi is amazing.
I was captured by this book with the adventure in the Gobi Desert. However I had a hard time finishing the book as it seemed to become a little dull nearing the end. Overall it was a good book and I recommend it to anyone.
Could not put it down
To say this is a feel good story is an understatement. Read it start to finish in one evening with my three rescue dogs at my feet.
Feel good Story
This is a great story of how people all over the world, from different cultures are similar in caring for others. I don't believe it would have the same great ending without the global support this man received. Great Book!
