If you ever wanted to stick your head inside a dog s brain, wiggle it around a little, and see what decides to pop out, then DOG ON IT is the book for you If you re a mystery lover with a heightened sense of curiosity about said dog, then that s even better If you don t love dogs on some sort of basic level, then you might find yourself in a state of uncertainty Or maybe you like unique voices in detective fiction But the bottom line is it s all about the dog, and Chet fills every page with his unique perspective.This book was an easy read, but it was a darn fine enjoyable one, too Chet was lovable, affectionate, filled with happiness and joy, and just so darn cute He changed direction about as often as Britney Spears changes her underwear, but I got caught up in whatever scent, or thread, or squirrel happened to pop into view.As for unique voices, though, I m drawn to those like cars are to potholes Chet made me feel like I was driving down I 25 with my head stuck out the window and the wind assaulting me, as my nostrils filled with the fresh air after a brief desert rain The rhythm of the sentences, the quick turn of direction, and the bubbles that seemed to pop with the utmost ease allowed me to believe I was inside Chet s head every step of the way.Sure, Chet had his faults, but he was as lovable on the first page as he was on the last And sure the mystery could have beencomplicated, but this is a dog s perspective after all It helps to look at it from a slightly tinted glass Just smile and wave boys, smile and wave, because Chet is here to stay.Cross posted at Robert s Reads My first Spencer Quinn and won t be the last It s not only for dog lovers The rest of the pack can also appreciate the book.The book features one of the most appealing narrators to come down the mystery novel in quite some time Chet the dog, the steady and stalwart companion of private investigator Bernie Little DOG ON IT is the best by far any mystery book that has been written in years What a funny, entertaining, clever read The dog s voice is what makes the book so appealing to me.Every year I always want to read new Authors This one was one hell of a discovery Who the hell is this guy Bernie was a Private Investigator tasked with finding a missing teenager his sidekick and partner in the Private Eye business was Chet, canine narrator and all round good guy But between Chet s highly trained skills, his sensitive nose and Bernie s dogged determination, their search for Madison took them far and wide From Las Vegas to New Mexico and across the vast desert but would they find her It seemed that there were bad guys at every turn Chet wished he could talk at times so Bernie could figure out the answers sooner then he could go back to doing what he did best devouring his doggy treats Dog On It is the first in the Chet Bernie Mystery Series by Spencer Quinn and I quite enjoyed it Chet, as narrator, became sidetracked quite often too many yummy smells around but he and Bernie made a great team But would they be better than the crooks You ll have to read it to see Recommended.
