Thanks to Georgina Moore at Headline for sending me a copy of this in exchange for my honest review.
What They Say:
No-one ever called Dan a pushover. But then no-one ever called him fast-track either. He likes driving slowly, playing Sudoku on his iPhone, swapping one scruffy jumper for another. He's been with Clara for four years and he's been perfectly happy; but now she's left him, leaving nothing but a long letter filled with incriminations and a small, white, almost hairless dog, named Doggo. So now Dan is single, a man without any kind of partner whether working or in love. He's just one reluctant dog owner. Find a new home for him, that's the plan. Come on...everyone knows the old adage about the best laid plans and besides, Doggo is one special kind of a four legged friend...and an inspiration.
What I Say:
I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. No, that's a lie. I expected a kind of mediocre blah blah story about a man and a dog and they saved each other etc etc...
I had heard a lot of hype about Doggo on Twitter and had high hopes that this book would be different. IT SO WAS!!
Waiting For Doggo is a story about an ugly little dog with a heart as big as a giant. He's quirky, wise and funny. He has his own little way of loving people and it's so heart warming and endearing. I love how he kind of worships Jennifer Aniston! That was so cute!
Dan is a great character and the perfect match for Doggo. He's a bit naïve, a bit of a dork but so likeable. He's not sure what to make of his new situation and Doggo helps him to learn and adjust to it. They are a great pair to read about. Edie is adorable too. I really, really liked her!
This isn't your usual fluffy human and animal story at all! Doggo is a huge personality and I'm so glad I read this book! It's just a great, lovely, warm but funny story! 8/10
