Review by: M T Mathieson on July 16, 2012 :
The protagonist is an irresponsible womaniser and pleasure seeker, not a character you would expect to have much sympathy for. However, we also discover very early on that he is a vulnerable and caring soul in an uncaring world. Unfortunately for him, he is also naive, a trait which leads him into trouble.

Throughout the story there are references to dead dogs, knocked down by motorists who simply can't be bothered to stop for a dumb animal. By the end of the story I could see a parallel between the dispensable dogs and the plight of Papo and all the other nobodies in the world. Papo is just trying to survive in a world where he is no less dispensable than a stray dog.

Narvaez's writing style is such that the reader's interest is maintained from the first word to the last. A really great read.
