With emotion-filled prose, Max Davis will grab your heart and your mind with his latest book, "Dead Dog Like Me". The story is quite well-written with an intriguing plot about a man who loses everything, and encounters the grace of God along the way. There is always a danger that when authors try to portray characters in the pit of despair that the story can drag along the way. I didn't find that to be the case here, except for one or two moments, but overall felt that there were enough drama filled scenes to keep the story moving along. The characters are realistically portrayed and Nick is one of those characters that you will both love and dislike at the same time, at least until God's done an amazing work in his life! I will admit to a tiny bit of disappointment that more of Nick's story didn't take place as the character of Mephibosheth. I was hoping for more time spent in ancient Israel encountering the life of this unique character in the Bible. However, the glimpses we did see made me want to race back to my Bible to find out more, and I always appreciate stories that do that. The themes of forgiveness and reconciliation that permeate this story are also wonderful to behold, and are sure to leave readers with an encouraging perspective on what really matters in life.
Readers who are looking for a contemporary novel that will encourage their walk with God while providing them with some well-spent hours of reading at the same time should pick up a copy of Dead Dog Like Me. I award this story 4 out of 5 stars.
