Review - Until Tuesday by Luis Carlos Montalvan
This book has been around for a while. In fact it has been on my bookshelf unread for a long time. I delayed reading it as I expected it to be a powerful story and I needed to be in the right frame of mind for it. -- I was not disappointed. Totally grips the soul as it takes you through the progression of Luis Carlos' life changing relationship with his Golden Retiever Tuesday. I was also much more totally enlighted about the nature of PTSD. While it has some aspects as one might expect, the constant hightened alertness was a little different than what I first imagined. It does a tremendous job in educating the reader on the topic.
Tuesday is one special dog. While dogs are pack animals and respect their owners as leader of the pack, dogs are also very capable of love, committment and devotion. I don't need a scientific study to tell me this. All you have to do is look into that pair of loving eyes. They often love you more than you love yourself. Tuesday is such a dog.
When you finish the book you will be exhausted, but you will also want to continue to follow Luis and other veterans like him.
Thank you for sharing your story Luis. Thank you for your sacrifice and service to our country. As I imagined, it was one powerful book!
