A charming book, based on history told from the watchful point of view of a spaniel. If you love beautifully written prose verging on poetry...if you love dogs...if you Virginia Woolf this book is not only a grand slam but perhaps the Holy Grail? I did not want to book to end and wish there was an unabridged version. I will be reading Flush again very soon.

Even if Virginia Woolf's is not normally your favorite, this book is a treat. It captures so many of the things that make her an amazing author and does it only a few hours: her sensory perceptions of London and Florance, her own way of communicating what she admires - or doesn't - in people, and her ability to write so totally from a single perspective at a time (this time a dog's!) Found myself doing a double-take at my own dog.
Would also love to own an unabridged audio of Flush AND an unabridged audio of A Room of One's Own.
(Be sure to catch the section about the spirits in the legs of the tables, from Flush's perspective)
