I guess I have to be the spoilsport here I did not like this bookLet me just say straight out that anthropomorphism does not sit well with me I almost jumped ship on page 30 where the story hopped over to the POV of Almondine the dog and had her thinking and reasoning like a human being I love dogs I ve had uite a few in my lifetime I speak dog well we relate to each other well But I think they lose their own innate dignity when people try to turn them into people A dog is a lovely thing It is not an inferior human being It is not superior human being It is a dog And that is enoughHowever I soldiered on To its credit the book is smoothly written Serviceable prose even if one only very occasionally encounters the kind of writing that lifts the heart Most of the writer s attempts to wax poetic were so over the top that they created a fog of obscurity that spread over the entir
