Wow – this book was really strange and I’m not quite sure what I made of it (and I have a high threshold for strangeness!).
The story is narrated from the point of view of a dog who is the ‘familiar’ to a dark and shady character and his group of animal friends and acquaintances who are also familiars to other ‘human’ (or near human) characters.
It pays homage to many horror classics and there’s a bit of fun to be had in spotting the horror literary characters.
I wasn’t always sure who were the ‘good guys’ and therefore who I should be rooting for and I was a bit confused overall at times about what was actually going on. Maybe just me being thick?
I think I liked it??
