Book 57 of Year 2017 – “You can have a dog when I’m dead” by Paul Benedetti

Official Title – You Can Have a Dog When I’m Dead: Essays on Life at an Angle

Genre – Non fiction

Book Length – 253 pages

Reading Time – 4 hours

Style/ Plot – This is such a humorously written book full of stories about different aspects of Paul’s life. These stories span from events that occurred in 1999 to 2016.

Through these stories, he takes the reader through a timeline of events that make you realise that life is full of good times (if we are patient enough to notice them), bad times we can learn from and just random moments to share with those around us.

Favourite Quote – …I am shaken, reminded that we are fragile things and that our hold on life is gossamer thin. How do you live when you can, in the briefest moment, disappear?

Recommendation – This is quite an interesting collection of short essays that you can read easily and relate to. You will experience a range of emotions…and probably get a dog in the process.

Rating – 4/5
