Random Amazon Review We Like
A mystery told from the voice of the detective’s side-kick, a dog. Oh please. I was hesitant to start this series, but a friend had recommended it so I read beyond the first few pages. And then… I kept reading, and reading, and before I knew it I was completely smitten. Since that time, I’ve devoured every book that Chet has narrated about his adventures at the Little Detective Agency. While each book is full of silly word play and misunderstandings, there is brilliance in this series. The characters are unique and lovable. The stories are thrilling, but funny too. The dialogue is pitch perfect. And there’s something about how the narrator Chet tells you one thing, but you come away seeing something very different that makes the reading experience a delight and will leave you thinking, “How did Quinn do that?”
If you love books with a great narrator voice like those of of Nick Hornby, Sherman Alexie, Mark Twain, and Alexander McCall Smith, you will love this book too. While it’s hard to put down and makes you laugh out loud, it sneaks across that threshold of popular fiction and into the literary realm.
