The Dust of 100 Dogs

Hey, I just finished A.S. King's The Dust of 100 Dogs. Wow, what a fun ride. A great novel about revenge, reincarnation, and rectification. Sort of. I would be just as correct in saying it's about history, pirates, and dog behaviour. It's also about true love, class warfare, and, civil rights. Ahh, the complexities of a well written book. So good on so many levels, one to read many times. It's like a hologram you can tilt at angles in the light to see a different image every time. I recommend it to all audiences 13 and above of adventurous tastes. It is officially a YA novel, but the appeal will certainly be much wider than that.
