    Predictable, not very eventful, it struggled to hold my attention I thought it was a feel good book before I started, but it touches on many hard subjects, like debilitating depression, marital family problems, etc Kind of a downer in general, but the ending was ok There were some fun sweet moments scattered throughout.

    I don t usually enjoy coming of age stories, but I thought this was tender The fact that it was inspired by a true story helped.

    In the midst of dealing with a World War, this small trainstation of a town has its own little dramas going on A boy on the verge of growing up, a wife tempted by a handsome would be rescuer, a loyal dog that has captured the imagination and heart of an entire town.This book managed to delve into issues of war, fidelity, manic depression, loyalty and love without being boring I think that says a thing or two I found the characters believable and endearing enough that I was rooting for them I In the midst of dealing with a World War, this small trainstation of a town has its own little dramas going on A boy on the verge of growing up, a wife tempted by a handsome would be rescuer, a loyal dog that has captured the imagination and heart of an entire town.This book managed to delve into issues of war, fidelity, manic depression, loyalty and love without being boring I think that says a thing or two I found the characters believable and endearing enough that I was rooting for them I found the true story of the dog, Shep, to be moving.Good book

    I enjoyed this book The author is a cousin of my mom s, and he writes pretty well Cold Train Coming is the story of two boys living in a small western railroad town They end up taking care of a dog who lives at the train station who has been there since his owner s body was taken away to family back east several years before The dog waits for every train, waiting for the owner The boy s story becomes entangled with the dog s and it makes for a quick, enjoyable book.

    Well written Since I read for stories, and way too fast, it was hard for me to slow down and savor the words Loosely based on the well known story of Shep, the sheep dog, who s master died and his body shipped by train to his family Shep spent the rest of his life waiting at the train station Meeting each train The main story is also about being faithful and true.


  9. Linda Linda says:

    The story itself was rather average I grew up in Fort Benton in the 50s and 60s and it was interesting to see the cast of characters from the 40s Very much as it would have been I suspect The story of Shep was ingrained in all of us, and like the youngsters in the story, hiking up to the little bluff by the train depot to see the statue of Shep was a common occurrence.

    This book will be a bitchallenging for my boys than the books they have been reading but I really want them to read it I really enjoyed this book It had sort of a Bridge to Terabithia feel to it.
