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.

    Soooooo pleased that you liked it, EJ. I like to call it a crossover novel, meaning it’s really for all people, regardless of gender, race or shoe size, aged 14 and up.

    This made my day. xoxo Amy
