This is the story of the Sawtelle family: Gar, Trudy, and their mute son, Edgar. The Sawtelles have been breeding and training very special dogs for several decades and the dogs have become so special that they are known now simply as “Sawtelle dogs.” The Story of Edgar Sawtelle turns out to be quite a story (those familiar with Shakespeare’s Hamlet might recognize early on where it is headed)
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski ~ Couldn't put it down; loved it...5 out of 5 stars!

A riveting family saga, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle explores the deep and ancient alliance between humans and dogs, and the power of fate through one boy’s epic journey into the wild. Excellent story, but the ending confused me. Hoping to find someone who's read this to discuss with them!
aside from stephen king stories, this is my very favorite book. i HIGHLY recommend it!!!!

Snobs by Julian Fellowes When the gap between Downton Abbey episodes becomes too great, it's nice to know that Julian Fellowes also writes books. This is his first novel, and it's a captivating, and sometimes humorous, story about the lives of the British aristocracy, though he himself describes it more as a story about life choices. Either way, it's a terrific read.
Snobs: A Novel of Modern Manners from Downton Abbey author Julian Fellowes (who establishes himself here as an irresistible storyteller and a deliciously witty chronicler of modern manners).

Snobs by Julian Fellowes | Community Post: 14 Books To Read If You Love Downton Abbey #downtonabbey via @BuzzFeed I just finished this book it is Good!
Snobs by Julian Fellowes | The best comedies of manners are often deceptively simple, seamlessly blending social critique with character and story. In his superbly observed first novel, Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey and winner of an Academy Award for his original screenplay of Gosford Park, brings us an insider’s look at a contemporary England that is still not as classless as is popularly supposed.
Snobs by Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey:) add to my reading list!
