Interesting idea, but failed to hold my attention,
This review is from: The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of his friend Marilyn Monroe (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like the idea behind this novel - it's an interesting conceit to have the lives of ultra-famous Hollywood starts like Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra viewed through the eyes of a dog. Unfortunately, the narrative voice of the dog is extremely irritating, and rather than finding the pomposity of a small Maltese amusing, I found it interfered with my ability to enjoy the plot. A shame, really.
