The story is told in the first person (or should that be the first dog?) and the author conveys 'being a dog' brilliantly.
We learn how 'Fluke' as he is eventually known feels different from other dogs and we follow his journey as he seeks to find out the truth.
Wonderfully written and beautifully described...with just the right amount of poignant moments...especially the end.
At times I read with a smile on my face, at others with a tear in my eye. This is a fantastice tale written from the viewpoint of a dog who believes he was once a man. The story tells of his hardships as a puppy and the unfloundering determination he has to find the family to which, he believes, he once belonged.
The story is beautifully written, with little dialogue and is unlike any other of Herbert's work with which I am familiar. A truly spellbinding piece of literature.
From the description you could be forgiven for thinking it might be a bit like those old "Homeward Bound" dog and cat voyage type movies - but it is far less sugary and more gritty - it is about survival on the streets and although Fluke meets humans who are kind to him and feed him, he also comes up against some very very sinister characters indeed who basically destroy his trust - especially in little old ladies!
It is a fantastic read, and James Herbert has written it so well with such wonderful description that you really get the feeling that maybe he was once a dog in a previous life and is writing from memory. After reading it, you will never look at your dog in the same way again. Highly recommended.
