    UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

    This story is about grief, unconditional love & companionship, and the emotional support that runs between Ted and Lily and how Ted deals with his and Lily's problems. Mr. Rowley's uses the octopus as an analogy of the crisis in Ted and Lily's life. Lily's crisis is medical, Ted's is emotional. Mr. Rowley skillfully created a story which expertly shows that we can run from the piper but the piper must be paid and we as humans must grieve, pick ourselves up, carry on, and live life to the fullest. I ran the gauntlet of emotions reading this story. Author Steven Rowley grabs you deep in your heart and does not let go. Mr This story has many levels and depths. Mr. Rowley sets the hook in the first pages and then reels you into the story. This is one of the best books I have read this year; few books have affected me as this one. I highly recommend this book by a talented author. This book is suitable for readers that like a solid well-developed and paced story.

    Stunning

    If you have ever really loved a dog you will love this book. It is full of humour and raw emotion as the narrator tells the story of his relationship with his dog and the situation they must deal with.

    Delightful magical realism

    A funny and intelligent story about a man and his beloved dog. Completely enjoyable yet heartfelt at the same time. I didn't want it to end.

    Draggy and largely irrelevant

    Didn't like the style of writing. Story went on for way too long. Seemed more of a book on the quirks of the dog owner than of Lily. I ended up pretty much flipping past chapters to get to the end and even then very nearly did not get to the end. Entirely disappointing read
