What I enjoyed about The Dust of 100 Dogs was the fascinating tale of pirates and dogs, of course! I loved the originality and the uniqueness of the plot. I was incredulous by A.S Kings ability to craft such a distinct and entertaining tale.
Another thing I really enjoyed and loved were the Dog Facts. They were hilarious and, being a dog lover, very true at the same time. Plus, it gave me advice on what I should do to train my future dog or dogs. Depending on how many I get. Hahaha.
What I didnt enjoy though was the fact that the plot kept moving from Emer in the late 17th century to Saffron in the 21st century. It basically confused me and I really had to read the chapter titles carefully and follow the plot carefully. If for one second I didnt pay attention, I would be completely lost and would have to go back and reread it to fully comprehend what was going on.
The characters were nicely developed. Both Saffron and Emer were definitely interesting to read about. Personally I enjoyed Emer more I liked her gusty attitude and her hope in finding her true love. It was really romantic but sad at the same time especially the fatal end that they both had.
Reincarnation was a really big theme in this book the Frenchman, the Frenchmans first mate, Emer, Emers true love, etc. Because I didnt realize that reincarnation was a big theme, I didnt realize who Fred was until I read the interview at the really end of the book. It probably would have helped if I had known earlier because I didnt get his part in the book at all until the end.
Overall, The Dust of 100 Dogs definitely wasnt what I had expected but it was still a pretty funny and entertaining read.
