The Lost Dog by Michelle de Kretser

Amazon link for The Lost Dog

Although this writing style is enjoyed by some, I find it extremely annoying. The story was lost in the flowery language and non-stop metaphors. It was not a pleasant read for me. Because I don’t like the style doesn’t mean that this is a bad book, it was just too distracting for me to enjoy. The characters are not anyone I would ever want to meet, except for the poor dog.

I would encourage you to go to Amazon and utilize their "Look Inside" and read a little of the book and decide for yourself.
