Well. I don't remember the book very well, except that it was written from the point of view of Hooker, the dog. As it hasn't stuck much with me, I'll give it half a star for being Canlit, and pass on. It is somewhat abut the play writing guy. Read full review

Not really what I thought it would be. Inventive, but not a book I'd bother reading again. Read full review
