This story had a little bit of an unsettled vibe to it. Bernie goes all introspective and large portions of his thoughts are not revealed to the readers which makes for some puzzled looks from me. Bernie talks mostly to Chet in this story, and that's fine, but thrashing this problem out with a human person could have moved the story along and explained some of what Bernie was thinking. I mean, Cheat is a cool dog, but his conversational talents are sadly lacking. It was maybe a little too easy to figure out who the villain was and I was sorry about that. I'm hopeful that the next book will present more interaction with Iggy and his family. Bernie isn't paying nearly enough attention to them and I worry.
Even though there were bits and pieces of this particular story that didn't work so well for me it was all very much worth the reading just to see how Spencer Quinn describes that wonderful dog Chet. The flights of fancy Chet goes on, the descriptions of riding in the car with the top down, the responses Chet has to various people he meets are all so realistic to those of us who love dogs. I'll keep reading this series as long as Quinn keeps writing them. And that's a promise.
the simpler and more fundamental the essence of something, the more difficult it is to recreate it, no matter the creative form. spencer quinn exhibits true mastery in this series. every page describes without "describing" the joy, confusion, more joy, and excitement as one earthling and his beloved sidekick go about their days taking care of the good guys and getting even with the bad guys. the chet and Bernie books are the quickest way to a smile when the skies have been grey a little too long.
thank you Peter Abrahams/Spencer Quinn for this new book. because no one can do it better.
