Still, the characters, storyline and plot is commendable!
One problem I had, initially, was that I didn't pay any attention to the little graphic at the beginning of the chapter. (I've been reading books with words & not looking at pictures since I was 4.) So, the second chapter was confusing. That's when I went back and realized that there's a little picture at the beginning of the chapter. There's a male, a female… (I won't spoil the rest.) That indicates whose POV that chapter is written from. Simple and effective system, as long as your reader is aware of it.
The authors do a decent job of giving a distinct feel to each POV, save for the dog. (I've read some books that aren't as successful at that.)
What caused me to abandon the book (though I was looking forward to seeing just where it was going) was the errors. They just got more and more frequent to where it was something pretty much every page.
Authors - show some respect and consideration for your readers. Even if you're giving away something for free, you should have enough respect (for yourself, as well), to at least make a reasonable effort to put out clean work.
There were wrong words, missing words, punctuation errors, lack of capitalization (it's "TV" not "tv"), and a myriad of other problems, including inconsistencies in grammar/punctuation styles and some absolute absurdities (what dog knows the word "femur"?). Those things pull the reader out of the story and make you look very uneducated. Lose-lose.
As always, if a corrected version is released as an update, I'll be happy to give it another shot and revise my review accordingly. Hell, you can hire me to proofread it. (With all the errors I see in Amazon books, I'm seriously thinking I should start a little business…)
The main thing I didn't like about this book was the use of vulgarity throughout the book. I wasn't going to continue reading it once the vulgarity started, but I liked the story enough to finish reading it. I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn't mind the swear words in it.

High Strangeness follows several characters, including Ken's dog. That threw me when I first one of the dog's chapters so if an anthropomorphised dog isn't your thing you may want to skip this book. Although it does add an extra "something" to the story. The book is also highly localised to the Cape Cod area, an area that is gaining some traction as having weird things happen (See the Bridgewater Triangle). Fun reading and you can get through it in a couple of hours. Perfect if you're currently stuck in quarantine.
I particularly like the dog's views!
