Fluke.. I honestly wasn't sure if I wanted to read this mostly because I wasn't sure what to expect? I've read The fog and The rats and was expecting something horrific. Animal abuse is something I can't read about at all! as I own a dog, and he's my little man and my best friend. But I bit the bullet and I'm so glad I did.
This book is nothing like James Herbets normal style. This book is absolutely wonderful! In this tale we meet fluke! Fluke is a tiny puppy fresh into the world, but he's not like an ordinary puppy he's different. We then follow Fluke on his vast adventures and find out just what fluke is and why he was a puppy, and along the way we meet some really amazing characters as well as some really nutty ones too.
I was expecting a heart breaking Watership down kind of vibe from this book and I wasn't looking forward to it. But instead it was an Inspiring and warming read. There's a big theme in this book and it's about life. I applaud James Herbert for this book, This book is one of the reasons why he deserved that OBE he got. As for a favourite character in this book it had to be Rumbo after Fluke of course. :P
