In the year 2008, a Malamute arrives in New York City, followed by a pack of German Shepherds, Dobermans, and Great Danes, all dressed in grand old Prussian style. They become the toast of Manhattan - Monster Dogs. But who, or what, are they really? Outfitted with voice boxes and prosthetic arms, the dogs are the result of an experiment begun years ago in a tiny Canadian village. But their creators did not anticipate that these decadent dogs would be threatened by a strange, incurable illness. In Lives of the Monster Dogs, Kirsten Bakis has created a haunting parable for our times. Download and start listening now!

    " This book blew my mind when I was younger, and it still fascinates me today. "

    " So disappointing. Such potential and such a great concept sadly falling flat with bad pace and bad characters. "

    " I've had this for years & finally got around to reading it. Strange, original, and ultimately entertaining. Story centers around genetically altered dogs (malamutes, great Danes, German shepherds, e.g.) who walk upright, use mechanical hands, and talk. Dressed in 19th century Prussian garb, they emerge from the Canadian wilderness (long story as to how they got there) in 2009 and settle in NYC. Interesting, but I don't think my "friends" would like it. "

    " This was very interesting. Its worth reading simply by its uniqueness alone. "
