    Hoping for a Follow-on

    As a lover of the Chet & Bernie series, I was very much interested in reading this new book from Spencer Quinn. I knew it would be a departure from the feel and tone of his other books. And in fact it was, but in a good way - and yet there were still similarities. I loved that it sometimes felt disjointed - because a combination of a brain injury and PTSD have left the main character, LeAnne Hogan, feeling completely disjointed. He did a great job of putting the reader in LeAnne’s shoes as she tries to come to grips with what’s happened to her body and her life. And then there’s the dog - another awesome dog as a major character in this book - and maybe, possibly, just a little bit more. I’m not sure I can say I “enjoyed” reading this one, there was some tough subject matter in it. But I’m certainly glad I read it, and if there’s ever a second installment of LeAnne’s story (he certainly left it open for that) it would definitely be high on my TBR list.

    The Right Side

    I have been a fan of the Chet and Bernie series since I picked up and read the first book by Quinn. However, this novel is not one of the Chet and Bernie series. It graphically details the life of Leanne from the time she was an aspiring gymnast to the point where she lost her right eye in an explosion in Afghanistan. The loss of her eye, the scarring of her face, and the fact that she no longer is the tough, strong, able soldier she grew to be is devastating to Leanne, so much so that she thinks suicide is the only way to peace of mind and heart. Fortunately for Leanne, there is a coal black huge beast of a dog who will not allow her to carry out her plan. The horror of PSTD and the loss of Leanne’s sense of self are detailed in a very believable manner, and we know that Goody, the huge black beast-dog, is going to be her saviour and push Leanne to find the way to recovery and reclaim her sense of self. I love this book and highly recommend it, as well as all Spencer Quinn novels.
