My favorite part was where Tom found Thunder in the thunderstorm and let him live with him. I liked it because it shows me Tom's character. He has a caring heart because he took pity on the dog. My least favorite was where Amos shot Thunder in the back. I didn't like it because I hate when animals get hurt, especially dogs. It shows me that Amos has a mean cruel heart. The character that changed the most was Amos because after he shot Thunder he realized that Thunder was warning them that a tidal wave was heading right for them. After that, Amos never did anything to try to hurt Thunder. He turned from cruel to nice. As I read this book, I had mixed emotions. I felt happy, when Thunder got saved and sad when Thunder was shot. I felt scared, when the wave came and almost killed Thunder and angry, when Amos did not care he hurt Thunder.
I recommend this book for grades 3 through 7 and dog lovers because the main character is a dog. This is a very suspenseful book. I think this is a dangerous and daring book because there are terrifying storms, loud gunshots, and major earthquakes.
