Scents and Sensibility - book review

I’ve owned Scents and Sensibility, the 8th book in the Chet and Bernie series, for at least a year (it was published in 2015).  When  I interviewed Peter Abrahams (pen name Spencer Quinn) in September 2016 for my column in NZ Dog World, he had put his plans for another Chet and Bernie ‘on hold’ whilst writing The Right Side.  235 more words

In The Spotlight: Spencer Quinn's The Right Side

Hello, All,

Welcome to another edition of In The Spotlight. I always enjoy getting reading recommendations from bookish friends. They broaden my reading perspective, and often invite me to ‘meet’ authors whose work I wouldn’t otherwise know. 990 more words

'Bow Wow: A Bowser and Birdie Novel' by Spencer Quinn is the 3rd in this Dog-Narrated Series for Children

Young readers love books about dogs and Spencer Quinn’s series about Bowser and Birdie is no exception. “Bow Wow” is the third book in the series that began with “Woof” and continued with “Arf.” Adults might be familiar with Quinn’s series about Chet and Bernie, which features the fabulous detective dog Chet, whose narrative sounds suspiciously like that of Bowser. 253 more words

The Right Side by Spencer Quinn

If PTSD in returning soldiers wasn’t such a serious issue, then The Right Side by Spencer Quinn would be a humorous book. But it is a serious issue and Quinn handles it with humor while getting his point across: PTSD can manifest itself in many ways, some of which mess with your mind, make you forget things you remembered seconds ago, disorient you. 275 more words

What I thought was going to be the story of a wounded warrior and a dog finding a missing child was not that at all. 438 more words
