    1. A dog s trot takes him past smoking chimney and chill, past field, cranny, and nook it takes him over ground where was laid not quite remembered bone, past sodding brook and sodding hill to nuzzle snake s hole and hare s trail and mole s endless dig it takes him down narrow ditch and up sweeping slopes and across ghostly divides it takes him through the curious muck fills it takes him the long way, going at it swift gaited as a racehorse or moaning low with unfathomable heartsickness but in the [...]


    2. I tried really, really hard to read this book I had heard good things about it from another book website I belong to It is written in first person Shakespearean DOG, and is about life as Bill Shakespeare s dog who knew LOL I guess the writing is all right, if you can stand to read in Old English I can t.


    3. A gift from my first Canadaphile friend, Carol, when she was a student at the University of Toronto, I guess this is a version of the alternative point of view novel that I find so fascinating Wide Sargasso Sea, Wicked, etc I probably read this right after the Rhys book, when I was especially hopped up on the concept In any case, I remember finding this delightfully raw, an easy read, and very funny I know it s great for those who love Shakespeare, but I wonder if people who don t care for Shake [...]


    4. My local library has a book club set of this novel and it was recently chosen for our book club to read I m sad to say that I had to give up pretty early on as I had really no idea what Mr Hooker was going on about except that he was upset that another dog was stealing all his action Too much work for my precious reading time, so I m moving on.


    5. A canine view of Shakespeare s life as told by his dog, Hooker It s an absurd plot so, of course, I had to read it I had a few chuckles, mostly I thought it was weird Kudos for writing something very unique, but, I just couldn t connect with it on an emotional level.


    6. The book is written from Wm Shakespeare s dogs point of view I loved it It was hilarious, if you can get past the crudeness of doggie behavior, and had a very good alternate story of Shagspeare s beginnings.



    7. I read this book after hearing the author interviewed by Peter Gzowski and just had to read it Great story, need to read it again.



    8. An interesting concept, but a little annoying to read Dogs just weren t meant to write books With apologies to Snoopy
