I loved the story, the charactera: both furry and human and the setting (good 'ol T.O.).
For the author to be able to describe goose droppings from a dog's perspective...texture, taste and most importantly smell sold me on this book. One of my top 5 reads of the year!
I strongly recommend it to non dog owners as well...it will make you want to adopt a four legged buddy.

What a good read! East Coast nuggets of quaint beauty dropped throughout a riveting, somewhat disturbing tale. I binged the entire book. Narration was on point!

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the perspective of an old woman in a care home. The characters were all too likeable yet somehow realistic. It was a good read albeit too short.

I enjoyed Fry's 'Mythos' slightly more than this book; this one was challenging to follow (too many names to remember). Still highly entertaining and funny.

The Story line was not believable and things wrapped up a little too neatly in the end. I wondered if the Author had really known about India and henna rituals at all. Performance was good.

interesting but dry

This book was not entertaining to listen to, but interesting none the less. Good performance.

Listened to it twice..it's that good!

The musicality of the characters conversations and one liners kept me amused; the rough tenderness the characters showed towards their fellow Islanders kept me reading.

Struggled to finish it. The story line was good, and appropriate in today's political climate. The narrator was somehow not "likeable" ...he seemed rigid and unattached to the characters.

Struggled to finish this book. It has a good, perhaps overly ambitious story line and kack character development, so I did not feel connected to any one of the characters, therefore not vested.

An amazing story that sadly brings the Trilogy albeit in a neat little ending. Questions get answered, as a reader I do appreciate that.
The story is rich with details and explanations that the first 2 books brought to surface but did not answer.
I highly recommend this whole Series to any SciFi, Bio or Anthro fan...it really does create a world that peeks many curiosities.
