Josephine’s #CBR5 Review #93 : There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff

Ok hope you’re sitting down as this will shock you. I have cut and pasted the synopsis form Goodreads! I know! Surprising isn’t it!

“Meet your unforgettable protagonist: God, who, as it turns out, is a 19-year-old boy living in the present-day and sharing an apartment with his long-suffering fifty-something personal assistant. Unfortunately for the planet, God is lazy and, frankly, hopeless. He created all of the world’s species in six days because he couldn’t summon the energy to work for longer. He gets Africa and America mixed up. And his beleagured assistant has his work cut out for him when God creates a near-apolcalyptic flood, having fallen asleep without turning the bath off.”


Goodreads also says “There is No Dog is a darkly funny novel from one of our most delightfully unpredictable writers.” It isn’t! Well to be fair, for all I know Meg Rosoff maybe one of their ‘most delightfully unpredictable writers’ I don’t know how they categorise their writers, but darkly funny it is not. Strange is what it is, and ummm not very good. I didn’t get it. You might. Who knows?
