The Pits Book Review

You’ll be engross reading The Pits. A great weekend book to read. Some scenes in the book are very descriptive, making it vivid and graphic but not offensive.

Sugar Reads The Pits

Reading the book, makes me think of the dogs that are getting hurt from dog-fighting. It is illegal and it is a cruel inhumane sport. So sad to read on a recent article, “Experts said dog fighting exists in every state and every city in the country. Experts said the dogs are often held in chains that weigh as much as the dogs themselves.” It’s heart breaking to know that dog fighting is an on-going problem. It is the most vicious thing one can do with an animal for a financial gain.

ASPCA has several articles about dog fighting, click here to read it.

      G’day Daisy,

      I sincerely hope that you will check my book out. I can guarantee that you will not find it depressing. The scenes involving dogfights might be a trifle nerve racking for some (and you can always skip over those pages) but overall I tried hard to keep t a positive tone to my book.

      You may find the sequel more compelling. I’m working on it right now and hope to have it out by FALL this year.

    I’ll check it out.
    Animal fighting is so cruel – impossible to understand if one doesn’t share the mind-set. And who would want to share that mind set?

    WE do NOT understand WHY peeps would want to force Dogs or Roosters to FIGHT. It is sooooooo cruel.
    Thanks fur the super review of this book.

    There is nothing that angers me more than animal abuse or dog fighting. Sounds like a great book; so glad you reviewed it! I will check it out on Amazon.
    Have a great day Sugar.

    We just can’t imagine dog fighting and that it actually happens. We never hear about it, but maybe in the outlying areas is where it is at. A terrible thing.

    I can’t understand people who like dog fights. Many thanks for a great review Sugar. Maybe the book will help people to understand how cruelty this kind of “sport” is.

    Thanks for sharing your review. Dog fighting is unfortunately running rampant in the south. I think the people responsible should be forced to fight while the dogs go play. There is a special place in Hell for people that fight dogs. GRRRR!
