Book number 23 in 2014 was Roddy Doyle’s Brilliant. I received this from Netgalley to review.
I wasn’t sure what to make of this book as I began reading it. I paused after the first chapter as it was dogs having a chat with each other…I am glad I persevered though. This is a children’s book, but a very enjoyable one. The Black Dog of Depression has been roaming round Dublin and the children need to fight him to save their families. I chuckled in places and was intrigued – could the children win and how would they do it? This was a quick read but one I enjoyed.
