Even the Dogs by Jon McGregor

As a novel, Even the Dogs is stretched to sparsely. McGregor's dialect is a relentless volley of a drug-addled torrent of realization that after about 20 pages I found deadening. The lack of dialogue and strange multi-person point of view and rambling intensified this effect. The dysfunctional lives of the book's characters became more attention-grabbing later in the book though the last chapter was my favorite. 2 Stars
