All the Dogs of My Life

by Elizabeth von Arnim

In search of the next book to read, I picked up von Arnim's All the Dogs of My Life because I enjoyed her Enchanted April several years ago, and was in the mood to read more about canine companions after Merle's Door. Von Armin's memoir of the numerous dogs that came and went in her life is pleasant and charming, but I did not get much more out of it. I suppose if I had read more of her other works or about her life before this, I might have appreciated it more. As it was, I found my interest seriously deteriorating after about fifty pages. I'll keep looking.
