There is no Dog – Meg Rosoff. Reviewed by Mango Bubbles Boy (11)

“Imagine that God is a typical teenage boy. He is lazy, self-obsessed, sex-mad – and about to meet Lucy, the most beautiful girl on Earth. Unfortunately whenever Bob falls in love disaster follows. Let us pray that Bob does not fall in love with Lucy.”                                                                                                                     RIP humanity and their planet.

Bob doesn’t care about humanity, his planet, anything but his dream of a life with Lucy. This is unfortunate, since he is God. God of a messed up planet, full of stupid little things, always fighting with each other, always wanting control.

Bob’s mum Mona has a drinking and gambling problem, she likes to drink vast quantities of gin while playing poker, which is not a good idea, who knows what she could gamble away. She ended up gambling away Bob’s pet, the last of its race, Eck.

This book is funny, full of problems and bad solutions.

This is my first Meg Rosoff book, and I like her style of writing very much. SO I COMMAND YOU TO BUY IT (but not if you are under my recommended age of 13 or 14+ (don’t judge that I am only 11 and I read it (I liked the title and the cover))) FROM ALL GOOD BOOKSHOPS – or the link below 😇.

WARNING: This is a Young Adult book/Adult book, it has a little bit of swearing, and a whole load of naughties.

(Buy the book)
