Gus reads Martin Amis #gusreads #growlingwithgus

What is Gus reading now?

Gus has been reading Red Dog by Louis de Bernieres and Yellow Dog by Martin Amis. Yellow Dog was definitely not what he expected. It

explores the complex lives of five very different men, including Xan Meo, a one-time familial paragon who suffers a personality change following a brutal assault, and King Henry IX of England, whose life is complicated by his incapacitated wife…

No, Gus much preferred Red Dog which is about

a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of travelling all over Western Australia, hitching rides over thousands of miles, settling in places for months at a time and adopting new families before heading off again to the next destination and another family – sometimes returning to say hello years later.

Gus wants to know why he can’t judge a book by its cover. Not that he is discouraged from reading – not at all. Gus realises that a healthy diet of books will always contain some less favourable reads. And so he decides on Peter Goldsworthy‘s Three Dog Night to complete his doggy trilogy, showing his dogged determination to be an erudite canine.

Oh dear, all this reading is making Gus sleepy. Until next time, this is Gus saying ‘goodnight’ for now. Woof.
