Please note, it does take several pages to inter into the narrative style of Dogboys language. And if you have ever spent time with a dog, you kind of get the feel that Dogboy is a real dog. It is like the sentences were spoken through panting bursts of thought. And this element makes the story magical for me; when Dogboy spoke he reminded of my dog and how he speaks to me.
There is another element to the author's writing that makes this book intriguing. It appears to be written for multiple age groups. It is reminiscent of how C.S. Lewis wrote Narnia and how Charles Bukowski laid lines down in Factotum. (However, this story does not in any way resemble anything Bukowski wrote other than the elegance and brevity of the author's writing style). On the surface, the writing in Dogboy is simplistic, but underneath it all, the author is portraying complex ideas and issues about our world today.
I give the author four stars for the story and five stars for pure genius in advancing comic books forward another step.
Lastly, you won't be disappointed with this purchase because the e-book is perfectly designed to be read on e-reader device.
