Lives of the Monster Dogs Free download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Here is a first novel like no other a spellbinding tale that both creates its own fully realized world perspective and provides an incisive look at the ways that humans and animals resemble each other A group of elegant monster dogs in top hats tails and bustle skirts become instant celebrities when they come to New York in 2008 Refugee. I like the idea of this book but I am very confused by several of the author s decisions in writing it It seems as if the novel takes place in almost present day in a world exactly like our own except that the Monster Dogs exist And then for some inexplicable reason the main character Cleo owns a laser pistol The single idea of that laser pistol seems absurd than the Monster Dogs themselves and that small detail just keeps on bothering me As for the rest of the book I find Cleo very uninteresting and most of the conversations incredibly wooden so much so that I don t understand how the friendship with the dogs formed at all The writing is also incredibly passive and caused me to skim a lot of the pagesI am also bothered by how unrealistic people s reactions in the book are Cleo is not disturbed by the massacre at Rankstadt and she barely bats an eye that it even happened She isn t bothered by the idea of murder massive weapon arsenals or anything of that sort It s one of the most confusing things about this book In fact no one seems bothered by anything Augustus Rank dismembers animals His guardians don t care Augustus performs weird sadistic surgery on a cow Guardians don t care the cow s owner doesn t care and a local surgeon doesn t just not care about the sadism he thinks Augustus has a talent that must be encouragedAll in all I wanted to like this book I like the idea But the fact that no one acts or reacts in a manner that makes sense with humans has just left me perplexed
