Publisher's Summary

Meet woman's best friend.

Kate is a middle-aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her - or will she lose everything?

As she trudges endlessly calling his name in the hopeless hope she may find him, she runs into other people’s landscapes and lives, finding allies amongst psychics, bloggers and mysterious midnight joggers. Trying to find her dog tests her relationship, and her sanity, to its limits - and gets her thinking about her life and why things have turned out as they have for her. 

A brilliant, life-affirming memoir, Lost Dog is an audiobook like no other about both about the myth of modern womanhood and the enduring mystery of the relationship between human and canine.

Redemption through the love of a dog

I love d listening to this “story” read by the author, which gives it even more feeling. Well written and heart warming with real human characters and of course a doggy hero in Wolfy.

Witty and moving. Loved it

I must qualify this review. I have a dog and suffer from the same oxytocin addition that Kate does. But I am not at all into the world of fashion, so I wasn’t a total slam dunk for the book. It’s a wonderful book. Kate describes how it feels to own and love a dog perfectly. All the insanity and joy of it. It’s also very funny and a sharp view of the moneyed classes of England. I hope she’s written more. And it’s great to have the author narrate it. She does a great job.

Incredible

Incredible book - sublime writing and delivery on the audio book (loved the accents on the different voices) so lovingly told and moving. Can’t recommend enough.

Wolfe

Great story glad to know I’m not the only one who loves their dogs so deeply. So glad it was a happy ending. Having Kate read it made feel so much more real. Loved it.

Loved it!

I am a dog owner and this book got me in all the right places. I cried tears and could really relate to the story about owning a dog and the emotions that go along with that. The author tells the story in a frank and real way and to start with I wasn’t sure I liked her very much and wasn’t sure I could relate to her. However that doesn’t last long and I found the book uplifting if not emotional but a great book that I was sad to finish.

Ideal if you are a dog lover

It is a simple story which started out well but did get a little repetitive and over used similes which got under my skin. I was ready for a happy ending.
