1 post | 1 read
'It's a fabulous book...I couldn't put it down.' Jane Fallon Meet woman's best friend. Kate is a middle aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her - or will she lose everything? As she trudges endlessly calling his name in the hopeless hope she may find him, she runs into other people's landscapes and lives, finding allies amongst psychics, bloggers and mysterious midnight joggers. Trying to find her dog tests her relationship, and her sanity, to its limits - and gets her thinking about her life, and why things have turned out as they have for her. A brilliant, life-affirming memoir, Lost Dog is a book like no other about both about the myth of modern womanhood, and the enduring mystery of the relationship between human and canine.

I really think you need to be a dog lover to enjoy this book. Particularly if you have become a dog owner later in life. I think many people will relate to the author‘s many references to the dog saving her. Very sweet. I liked the writing and the humour in this book. I recommend this if you are a ‘dog‘ person. I don‘t think cat people will appreciate it 😀
