REVIEW: The Great Gatz

The Great Gatz is the story about a family told through the perspective of their beloved border collie, Gatz. He’s cute, funny, intelligent and always in the middle of everything. He loves The Man and The Woman fiercely and does everything he can to protect their happiness. The Man and The Woman are no longer together and they share Gatz on a split schedule through the week. I love how included they have him in their lives and how much credit he takes for all of their moments. They are each with someone new, The New Man and The New Woman, and he helps them navigate the ins and outs of new relationships and their careers.

I love the way this was written. Gatz is a dog and he has complete dog moments where he’s telling us about the smell of hors d’oeuvres or how much he wants to sniff a butt but most of the story he is a psychologist who loves every aspect of his people. He is insightful and provides poignant quotes and advice that somehow always hits the mark.


If you love dogs and cozy family stories with real world scenarios that are not overblown with drama or steam then check this one out! ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
