Funny and Interesting but Somehow Impersonal
on 6 June 2013
I love dogs and love to read about them so I thought I would really enjoy this book. To some extent I did. There were some genuine laugh out loud moments at funny things that happened. There is, however, a 'but' - this wasn't written by the policeman handler of Cassius but a professional writer, judging by his writing credits, and it shows in the lack of the personal touch. He describes how the policeman felt at various times but it didn't touch me because it didn't feel personal. The writer was describing an emotion it seemed he hadn't felt himself.
This seemed to put the story at a distance from the reader, somehow. At 95p it's an OK book and worth it for the funny moments but I would feel cheated if I'd paid a lot more for it.
