Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Fluke ★★★☆☆

Fluke - James Herbert

This was a weird little story covering the life of a dog, told from the dog’s POV, who has vague memories of having been human once. He remembers a wife and daughter and remembers being murdered. The story meanders through several major events in the dog’s life as he learns to fend for himself and tries to track down the remains of his old life and his murderer. I was entertained enough to finish the entire book, but found the conclusion unsatisfying.

 

Audiobook version, purchased from Audible. Damian Lynch gives an excellent performance.
