Dash and Dingo: In Search of the Tasmanian Tiger

Dash and Dingo: In Search of the Tasmanian Tiger - Catt Ford, Sean Kennedy Where to start?

I adored Sean Kennedy's previous outings with Tigers and Devils and then the follow up Tigerland, so decided to try another novel involving the same author. This book was co written with Catt Ford, who I haven't read before. I have to say Dash and Dingo didn't really gel with me. I felt the plot was a bit weak, when trying to build up the villain of the piece Hodges. Hodges just didn't feel menacing enough to me. This meant that the ending to his part in the story felt anti climatic.

I missed Kennedy's characteristic humour from the other two books I've read and thus the humour which was in the book felt kind of forced to me. I really wanted to like the story, but felt I didn't connect with either Dingo or Dash. Thus not invested in their story it was a real struggle to get to the end of the book.

The book was told large from Dash's POV, just there were jarring instances where we had Dingo's POV. When Dingo's POV was inserted it didn't fit with the flow of the novel, as it Dingo's POV could be in the middle of a paragraph which had started off from Dash's POV.

It was just an okay read for me. If there is a sequel I won't be reading it.
