I haven’t read many animal mystery books. Not that I did not like them – been too busy with my own writing and studies, so I haven’t had much time for leisure-reading. I had Moose McGilligutty downloaded for months before I read it. I’m glad I did.
I liked the book. The present tense was something I was not used to in the beginning, but it did not take long to get used to it.
Moose is a fun character. Macho – but in a good way. A little dog with a big personality. Faithful to his friends – and when one of them is in danger, he does not hesitate to act. The whole plot to save his friend from the death row is great – not what I would have thought animals could perform, for sure. But what the hey – it was fascinating to follow where the author’s imagination would lead.
The action is well described and keeps your eyes glued to the page. I chuckled on many occasions. (Perhaps the only thing that caught my eye was animals calling each other ”people”.)
Following Moose’s thoughts sure made you feel you were inside the little mutt’s mind. Clearly the writer knows how dogs behave.
I’m a cat person myself but I do love dogs, so I think I will follow Moose’s adventures in the future as well. A refreshing new acquaintance.
