    " I would ahve given it four stars if the ending hadn't been so sad. The author is funny and I intend to read some of his other works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dingogrrl | 2/6/2014

    " Shakespeare...doggy style! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Addie Cole | 2/5/2014

    " Not even finished, nor will it ever be. And I usually like Matt Haig so much, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gerry | 1/22/2014

    " This book did not engage me. We had 3 dogs - dogs to die for - dogs to cry for. Friends, family and loyal in return. OK not Labs but I would say more engaging. I could not give a tuppence when the dog was put down and when new couple on the block were plotting their games I wanted to punch their lights out more than anyone but the dog? Just give it a bone - I don't care. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 1/14/2014

    " I was very disappointed with this book - teach me for buying a book for it's cover. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 12/24/2013

    " Another animal narrator, another 2.5. Maybe I just don't like the animal narrator model, or maybe I just found this story predictable and not that compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celeste | 11/26/2013

    " Considering that it's written from the point of view of the family dog, this book is really powerful. It's an eerie look into human interactions and family trauma. Warning: it's also very sad. But y'all know how I feel about happy endings... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 11/15/2013

    " Really enjoyed it at first but then went progressively more weird and ultimately just plain disturbing. Not one I'll be passing on to family and friends - just the charity shop. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 8/11/2013

    " Well done, just not really my cup of tea. Really made me want a dog, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 5/20/2013

    " A look at the life of a mixed up family narrated by their dog. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 10/16/2012

    " also published under title "The Labrador Pact". Story is told by the labrador retriever who is charged with protecting his family. Through teenage parties, infidelities, murders, this dog stays true to his calling. An interesting take on what our pets think of us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 9/27/2012

    " This book got me hooked from page 1. It's a story on the trials and tribulations of a family as told from their family Lab Prince, who will go to great odds at keeping them together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rich | 8/25/2012

    " Fast, bitter-sweet read. Allegorical I think about spirituality, family, and relationships. A must read for dog lovers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 7/19/2012

    " I have the best dog ever, and every night I'd get home and tell him what I learned about him and his pals. I'm very pleased that the labradors are really in charge, and will keep our families together. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer Gee | 4/23/2012

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 3/29/2012

    " I have to admit I read the first few pages & then skipped to the end, & decided not to read it based on that... It may have been a great book, but not what I'm in the mood for... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 2/29/2012

    " It was boring. A poor second showing from a good writer. I liked the attempt of looking at human life through a dog's eyes but for me it came off as overly British and dated. Too bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare Coffey | 1/21/2012

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I thought that it was well written. I read it just after our dog came into our lives. I would recommend this book to non dog lovers as well as dog lovers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/30/2011

    " slightly silly account of a labrador's attempts to save his family from meltdown. a quick,humorous read. "

    " I have to admit I read the first few pages & then skipped to the end, & decided not to read it based on that... It may have been a great book, but not what I'm in the mood for... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maybaby | 4/2/2011

    " Well...as a jaded reader whose finding it hard to find worthy reads. This one was a worthy read.
    It's a quick read.
    I won't spoil it for anyone.
    It's not a great literary work. It's a fine piece of light modern fiction. "

    " It took a while to get into this book, but once I did I really, thoroughly enjoyed it. Ending was sad, thought somebody would come and save the dog but sadly no!! But I suppose that was the point! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cyd | 4/11/2010

    " Two stars because, while well written I do not like the ending. I should have learned my lesson about dog books. I am always hopeful. "

    " THis was a gift from my dad for christmas each year he gives me a new novel as a gift.I enjoyed this one and especialy the different narrative viewpoint.Books with animals are not my favorite as I worry the entire time that something terrible will befall the animal that is why the 3 star rating.
