Quotes

[first lines]
Jerry: It was the end of an era, profit had turned to loss, fortune to folly, winners to losers. And the chaff was beginning to fall out like so much dandruff. Didn't have to shake too hard to get me to tumble though, I'd only ever been along of the ride. I just never cared that much. And now, now it was time for something new.

I enjoyed the character driven aspects.
30 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Dogwalker is unique as it intertwines the races as well as the socio-economic aspects of the characters.Creating a sence of love,empthy,conflict and tradgi-comedy. All that for under $500,000.00......W O W
