Is It Dusty In Here Or What?
[tag]A. S. King[/tag]. I started it to day and, reluctantly, I finished it today. I feel lost, set adrift amidst a becalmed sea, devoid of pirate ships and Spanish Galleons and tropical islands hiding buried treasure. I miss Emer with her Irish temper and Saffron with a hundred dogs in her past and her future hanging in the balance.
And I miss the Dog Facts.
Though I don’t miss Fred.
And ya know, to be honest, I think she’d of been better off with David. But that, of course, would have changed the story.
They say this is a YA novel (Young Adult for those of you not in the publishing slang loop) and if so, I wish they’d had this sort of thing available when I was YA.
If you want the same-old-same-old reading crap, Cussler has a new one (the cover of which is ripped off from a really good novel, [tag]Freezing Point[/tag] by [tag]Karen Dionne[/tag]) and I’m sure Patterson has yet another cut-n-paste novel making the rounds.
But, if you want something beautifully different, a story unlike the everyday boring fare, a tale that will carry you to faraway places, The Dust of 100 Dogs should be at the very top of your book shopping list.
