The Speed of Souls is the heart-warming, often hilarious, often outrageous, journey of Hugo (a dog who dies and comes back as a cat), Cassie (an aging rescue dog coming to terms with her own mortality), and Jerry (a once popular sci-fi writer in the midst of a cataclysmic mid-life crisis).

Hugo was a dog. He died. Now he’s a kitten. As Hugo adjusts to his new body (not just a cat—a baby cat!), his new home (San Francisco), his new outside (Where are the mountains? Where is the lake?), and his sudden urge to sit in every box he sees, he wonders if he’ll ever see Cassie or Jerry again.

Back in Lake Tahoe, Cassie and Jerry attempt to come to grips with life without Hugo. Cassie fills the void with “Tadpole Guard”, “Worm Patrol”, and ups her protection of Jerry (her human), who is in the midst of a cataclysmic midlife crisis. In addition to his dog dying, Jerry’s last two books have been monumental flops and he’s still reeling from his fiancée leaving him for another man. As if these problems aren’t enough, his parents (who have become late-stage hippies) are coming to live with him for the entire summer.

And so begins the journey of three souls, intertwined by loss, love, and perhaps something even greater. Told with Nick Pirog’s charm and razor sharp wit, The Speed of Souls is at once a hilarious, moving, and transcendent work of storytelling.

Customer Reviews

So so so good!

This book is so awesome. I love how he writes from the perspective of the animals. It’s such a fun book, lots of adventure, lots of emotion, hilarious at times! Love love love Nick Pirog!

Hilariously sweet & soul touching

What a wonderful book. I laughed and cried. Love how the story was told from both “hooman” and dog/cat perspectives. The ending was so surprising that I want to re-read it now that I know. I recommend this book 100%
