5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner!, 3 Feb. 2016
I was gripped by this book from start to finish! It is a story you can really get your teeth into, quickly plunging you into the strange machinations of Tom's mind and barely letting you draw breath until the thrilling climax. A pacy, gritty story of psychological turmoil with plenty of old-fashioned action, and a powerful observation of the horrible truths about the world in which we live. Well structured and superbly written, with a touch of the author's trademark humour, it is refreshing to read a thriller that doesn't loose momentum and keeps you on your toes. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is one of those rare books that has you laughing out loud. Fast-paced, skillfully written, and deeply touching, it verges on the ridiculous and yet astoundingly real. The story of one man, his dog, and a crazy search for meaning and doing the right thing. Unputdownable and highly recommended, the most unique book I've read in a long time!

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book most of the way through, 28 Aug. 2015

I really enjoyed this book most of the way through, it is generally very well written, and the "diary" morning/evening format is a nice narrative device. Some excellent insight into all the characters even though only written from the women's perspective. Interesting psycho-social observations about the assumptions we make about strangers and their lives and stories. My only complaint is that it appeared a little rushed towards the end and became a little too over dramatised for my liking. I would nevertheless recommend this book as an enjoyable read with plenty of "can't put down moments"!

I downloaded it as an "easy read", but it had much more depth than I expected. Well written with an interesting plot and well developed characters. It won't be winning the Man Booker Prize, but it is definitely worth reading.

This is a really refreshing book with "real life" tips and which addresses the doubts and questions that parents may have about whether certain techniques will actually work in practice. With a pre teen (12) and a childish 11 year old and a recent separation from their father, this has helped me focus on realistic ways of creating a more communicative and supportive household. Highly recommended.

A little disappointing for a Rachel Abbott book, I found it a bit slow moving at times. No big surprising twist for me, but nevertheless an entertaining read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 July 2015

I really wanted this device to work. We have three labradors and quite a small garden, plus two children, so I sounded like the perfect way to keep our grass waste free and hygienic. It is such a shame that it doesn't really live up to expectations. The concept is great, but in practice the Dooup needs some serious re-designing. The bag is unnecessarily fiddly to fit and change, and the "self sealing" system isn't really that, the bag needs securing by hand. There isn't enought room for more than two or three deposits, after which if you're not careful all the poo starts dropping out all over the place and makes a complete mess. The scoop gets covered in poo and needs careful cleaning after every use. For a medium sized poo in a neat pile, on short grass or a hard surface, the Dooup will pick up the mess cleanly and effectively. We have found that it'ts best to leave the handle down between poos to prevent the ones already collected from falling out. It would be good to see a cover of some sort or a swinging collection box of some kind to get round this. Not effective on long grass or soft poos. Not particularly hygienic, and the antibacterial spray is a good idea, but also needs re-thinking to make it effective. It currently sprays a tiny amount on a small patch of ground vaguely near where the poo was. I would love to try a re-vamped version of this device, but for now it's back to the old hand in bag method for us.
