Started Early Took My Dog ~ Kate Atkinson
Odd plot, jumpy narrative, unsatisfactory ending
... and there wasn’t much about the dog.
I never mind when a narrative jumps from one character to another - I enjoy seeing the plot develop through other points of view ... but this one didn’t do it well for me ... maybe because there were jumps in the time frame as well.
There was an excess of characters who were not necessary to the main plot. And after allllll this being about stolen children/ missing children, all is left up in the air about the child that was “sold” at the start.
