Dog by Andy Mulligan | Book Review

With charming and irresistably unique characters, ‘Dog’ follows the story of a pet’s life, Spider, and the adventures that it holds. Spider struggles with what he is and what he could be – through climbing out of his owner’s window to almost escaping the confines of a household by accident, he wonders whether a life of a cat would be better for him. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that centres around a dog and the complexities of an animal’s mind quite like this before – the vivacity of each and every character is truly astonishing. It is a very easy read that keeps you on your toes page after page until you find yourself reading 20, 50, even 100 pages in one complete sitting. I did think I wasn’t going to enjoy this as much as I did because of my acquired taste when it comes to the perfect read and the suggested age ranges that usually comes with this type of plot. However, I did surprise myself by really warming to Spider and the friends that he finds on his way whilst stumbling through life at the aid of others. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
