In Dogsong written by Gary Paulsen a boy is living with his dad in a small village in canada. He does not like the way his people have come to live with snow machines and all the things brought by the white men. He wants to live the way his people once did. So he decides to go to Oogruck. Oogruck is the only one left that knows the original way still. He is hoping Oogruck will teach him these ways so he can live the way once lived.
I think the author did a very well job of describing everything. He did not just describe the looks of the things but also the smell and the feel. It was so good it was like I was rite there. He did a great job on this.
I also think the author did a very well job tying it all together. There were times I didn’t get what he was talking about but then he made it clear. He tied it together very well by explaining it all together through the characters thoughts and dreams. It was very well put together.
One thing I think the author didn’t do well on was the ending. It just stopped and wasn’t very strong. I think he could have not stopped it as brief and made it more powerful. That’s the only thing I think he could have improved on.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action and suspenseful books. It is very exciting and makes you want to keep reading. It is a great book and I hope you will read it to.
