Review: Dog on It

Dog on It (A Chet and Bernie Mystery, #1)Dog on It by Spencer Quinn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This tale of kidnapping (or is it a runaway?, opinions differ) from the point of view of Chet, a dog, was well done and often funny.
Some of the tics that go along with having a dog for a narrator, like getting distracted from the action by food on the floor, got a bit tedious after a while. Overall though Quinn does a good job with the premise and keeps most of Chet's observations to things he saw, or interpretations based on stuff Bernie says or his knowledge of Bernie's habits.
The mystery they are working on was an interesting one, with a logical conclusion. Some of the action seemed far-fetched. There is a scene on a cliff after a car wreck that was beyond ridiculous. Ultimately I am glad I read this, but probably won't continue with the series.
