Top critical review
Very imaginitive but a dissapointing ending.
on 3 April 2008
This short story is very original and imaginitive. I imagine Burgess' inspiration was the question "Why do homeless people often have dogs?"!
The main character, Sandra is well depicted before and after her transition from human to dog, and Burgess clearly conveys her emotions and her personality.
This book asks some moral questions about life, similarly to Burgess' other more famous book Junk. The reason I gave this story three stars was that the questions it asks make the reader feel really negative. This book makes you feel degraded, especially the ending, which I wont give away.
Its difficult to write about this book without mentioning the ending but I dont want to spoil it.
The book is well written but I wouldnt recommend it as a cheerful read!
