Book Review: "Waiting For Doggo" by Mark Mills
The novel centres on the budding relationship between Dan and his new artistic partner Edie, a bright a beautiful young talent who is having an affair with a married man in the office. I felt that the title of the book was a bit of a misnomer given it implies Doggo plays more of a central role than he proves to. This is a more a story about wealthy pretentious thirty-somethings than any kind of meaningful or moving novel about a dog.
Sure, it has its moments in terms of humour, and it's reasonably well written, but when something is described as 'chick lit for men' it should rightly raise alarm bells. This is the kind of disposable book which is fine when you're in need of a light read. It just isn't going to change your life.
