Beschreibung von Audible

I had wanted to read this when the book was published, but didn't get to it. So, I downloaded it as soon as it became available at audible.com. I'm not sure what had intrigued me about this book so much, perhaps the striking cover art and wild story line. I'm glad to say that listening to it met all of my expectations! New York City becomes home to a pack of erudite, highly intelligent dogs, who speak with German accents. Like most NYC media stars, they are well dressed and ride around in limos. But their lives turn tragic when some of the dogs begin to go mad with a disease no one can cure. Besides wonderful characters and wry commentary on celebrity, there are big themes here: loyalty (what dogs are known for, right?) love and loss, and death. Is this an AIDS parable? Is it a story about immigrants, alienation and otherness? I'm not sure, but it has me thinking. (Beth, VP & Publisher)

Inhaltsangabe

In the year 2008, a Malamute arrives in New York City, followed by a pack of German Shepherds, Dobermans, and Great Danes, all dressed in grand old Prussian style. They become the toast of Manhattan - Monster Dogs. But who, or what, are they really? Outfitted with voice boxes and prosthetic arms, the dogs are the result of an experiment begun years ago in a tiny Canadian village. But their creators did not anticipate that these decadent dogs would be threatened by a strange, incurable illness. In Lives of the Monster Dogs, Kirsten Bakis has created a haunting parable for our times.
