    1. I had previously enjoyed the charming 1961 Disney film adaptation of Greyfriars Bobby, and for some reason, I don t know why, I had the notion that the source novel would be a bit dry and dusty I was entirely wrong This is one of those happy instances where the movie is a faithful adaptation, but the book is even better, simply because there s of it a little depth to the characters, backstory, incidents that just didn t fit into a screenplay The story of Bobby, the faithful little Skye terri [...]

    5. My reading of Stevenson has reminded me how much I loved this as a child I was such a sucker for sentimental animal stories sobbed my heart out at the film version of The Incredible Journey and one of my earliest memories is how the lions at the Zoo did not share out their food in a comradely sort of way and I cried all the way home because one lioness went hungry Aaaaaaaaw Molesworth would have called me a wet and a weed, and my older brother called me worse than that But that s what older brot [...]

    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this book The writer kept my attention through the whole story I thought it was interesting how she used the language of the day when the characters spoke I actually had a tough time translating in some instances Most of the time I figured it out I loved the lesson she taught us through the love and faithfulness of a little doggie.

    18. Such a moving little story about the love and faithfulness of a dog An even better read if you have visited Scottland and the beautiful places in which the book takes place.

    20. True story of a Skye terrier loved by allThis was kind of hard to read because a lot of dialect is Swedish, but so worth reading Feel good reading.

    21. Greyfriars Bobby is a sentimental and charming story based on the life of a dog named Bobby who faithfully guarded his master s grave for 14 years This version, like all others, is not a definitive and accurate version of what really happened but a compelling story nonetheless Although others have been tempted to call this a children s book the author meant it for adults and it is fine reading for any age My only warning is this Prepare to read slowly and carefully as all spoken words are writte [...]

    22. REVIEW GREYFRIARS BOBBYSuram, itu merupakan hal pertama yang terpintas kalau melihat buku ini Gimana nggak suram, gambar anjing kecil dengan sebuah batu nisan adalah cover terpilih untuk novel ini Seakan kurang menyuramkan, warna abu abu lah yang dipilih untuk menemani mereka melapisi halaman depan buku Ada kutipan terkenal yang mengatakan jangan memandang buku dari covernya, karena belum tau tentang isinya Namun nampaknya, buku ini merupakan pengecualian Greyfriars Bobby adalah sebuah cerita te [...]

The story begins in 1858 when Bobby is a young, slate gray, Highland Skye terrier who lives on a sheep farm in the Pentland Hills outside of Edinburgh, Scotland He claims as his master an old shepherd named John Gray, age 63, generally known simply as Auld Jock, although the dog actually is owned by the tenant of Cauldbrae farm where the shepherd works That winter the farmer has to let Auld Jock go for lack of work, and the elderly shepherd rents a room in Edinburgh Bobby runs away from the farm [...]

    24. I enjoyed reading my 1940 edition of such a sweet story about a dog s loyalty and love I don t even like to be around dogs, but I enjoyed this story and the sneak peek into daily life in a Scottish town Though the Scottish brogue throughout the book can be a challenge to decipher, I enjoyed this heartwarming story And presently the man showed, unwittingly, how sweet a kernel the heart may lie under the shell of sordid necessity p 88 Everything warned Bobby to lie still in safety until morning an [...]

    25. This is an enchanting book based on a true story of a little dog, a Skye terrier, who lay on his master s grave for years I don t remember reading it as a child but I remember the movie and how the story always stayed with me When we were in Edinburgh we saw the graveyard and the little dog s grave as well as the bronze statue of him atop the fountain built so animals could find water when in the bustling town The story still resonates today as a symbol of loyalty.
