Not at all what I expected, MORE than I anticipate

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is way more than I expected it to be. I couldn't put it down so I could see how it ended, now I want to read it again!

Praise
"[T]he most enchanting debut novel of the summer. Written over a decade by the heretofore unknown David Wroblewski and arriving as a bolt from the blue, this is a great, big, mesmerizing read, audaciously envisioned as classic Americana."
"[A] classic coming-of-age story with an ironic twist. Sustained by a momentum that has the crushing inevitability of fate, the propulsive narrative will have readers sucked in all the way through the breathtaking final scenes." (starred review)
"A stately, wonderfully written debut novel...Highly recommended."
From the Publisher
Editors Note A Hamlet-style tale that also celebrates the ancient alliance between humans and dogs follow the coming-of-age of speech-disabled Wisconsin youth Edgar, who bonds with three yearling canines and struggles to prove that his sinister uncle is responsible for his father's death. 75,000 first printing.
Annotation In this enchanting debut novel, a mute boy with the ability to communicate with dogs becomes suspicious of his uncle after the death of his father--a plot readers of HAMLET will find familiar. However, there is much more going on in this novel than merely a reenactment of Shakespeare's play: THE STORY OF EDGAR SAWTELLE is full of strange magic, lyrical prose, and a love of animals that are uniquely its own. Author David Wroblewski toiled on the novel for ten years, and the result is a rich and lovingly crafted book with a timeless classic quality. Selected as one of the 2008 Best Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly.
