Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Paul’s thoughts are read simply and in a straightforward fashion that seems just right for the character’s many interior monologues. [The narrator] is especially good as the calming voice of Stella (Paul’s faithful dog), who has her master pretty well pegged yet loves him, warts and all.” Booklist
“Pete Nelson has spun a beautiful ballad out of the humblest elements: an old dog, a drinking problem, a Minnesota family, and a woman torn between two lovers. He’s also written a truly outstanding talking-dog story. With exquisite tone control, Nelson has given us a story that’s sweet and loving but never sentimental. This could easily be the book the smarter people in Lake Wobegon might be reading on the couch on a Sunday afternoon, when football’s not in season.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“[I Thought You Were Dead] has a low-key, indie-movie vibe, with Stella sounding like Juno’s older, world-weary aunt.” Washington Post
“Heartfelt and nostalgic in tone…Stella’s wisdom sets the luckless Paul on a brighter life path. It’s her nobility…that gives the story its power.” USA Today
“Ultimately, I Thought You Were Dead is about the catastrophes that make a person realize his life is a mess, then do everything he can to put his life back together—perhaps, in the process, creating something better than he dared to hope for.” BookPage
“Stella the dog is always charming. And there’s a dignity and gravity to Paul’s affection for her…Their friendship [is] one of the best ever put down on paper.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Nelson captures the importance of a relationship between a man and his dog, especially in how it can foster and strengthen other relationships.” Library Journal
