I'm normally only a science fiction fan, however Amazon sent me a list of recommended reading and as a slave of two doggies I decided to give this book a go. I'm certainly glad I did, it having all the pathos, tear jerking and damned good fun of a read. I would highly recommend this book to the world and if anyone says any different I'll set my old fat Chihuahua onto them, so there. Cheers to all, and buy this book!!
