Good afternoon all.
Today, I would like you all to read this amazing extract I have taken from a spectacular book called “A Dogs Purpose”, written by W. Bruce Cameron and later on becoming a movie.
-I was a good dog. I had fulfilled my purpose. Lessons I had learned from being feral had taught me how to escape and how to hide from people when it was necessary, scavenging for food from trash containers. Being with Ethan had taught me love and had taught me my most important purpose, which was taking care of my boy. Jakob and Maya had taught me Find, Show, and, most important of all, how to save people, and it was all of these things, everything I had learned as a dog, that had led me to find Ethan and Hannah and to bring them both together. I understood it now, why I had lived so many times. I had to learn a lot of important skills and lessons, so that when the time came I could rescue Ethan, not from the pond but from the sinking despair of his own life. –
-Humans were capable of so many amazing things, but too often they just sat making words, not doing anything.-
What can you say about the way In which the language and the tone tie into the title of the book?
