Red dog. Dampier and Karratha public libraries also keep press-cuttings about Red Dog, and I wish to thank their librarians for their invaluable and freely given help. Non-Australians will find a glossary of Aussie terms at the back of the book. PART ONE. From Tally Ho to Red Dog.

Louis de Bernières (born 8 December 1954) is an English novelist. He is perhaps best known for his 1994 historical war novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin. In 1993 de Bernières was selected as one of the "20 Best of Young British Novelists", part of a promotion in Granta magazine. Captain Corelli's Mandolin was published in the following year, winning the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book. It was also shortlisted for the 1994 Sunday Express Book of the Year

This does not bear any real relation to de Bernieres' other work, which is startling and imaginative with brilliant effects, although perhaps a bit of a copy of the magic realism style of his literary heroes such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This is really a children's story I guess about a famous dog much like Jock of the Bushveld, but without the colour and vivacity of Jock's story.

Red Dog went totally bush after that," said Peeto. It hasn't been the same round here since Red Dog died of strychnine poisoning," gulped Bruce, holding back the tears. He'd travel down to the beach at Freo and piss on the judges' table at the posh dog competition. And when he was shot out by Seven Mile Creek, he'd only gone and covered the wound in a field dressing by the time we got to hi. "No kidding," slurred Bluey. I heard he'd even driven a Holden down to Adelaide and had swum over to Tazzy. It hasn't been the same round here since Red Dog died of strychnine poisoning," gulped Bruce, holding back the tears

The kind of book that changes readers for the better' Guardian. When a family tragedy means Mick is sent to the outback to live with his Granpa, it looks as if he has a lonely life ahead of him.

In this charming prequel to the much-loved Red Dog, Louis de Bernières tells the moving story of a young boy and his Granpa, and the charismatic and entertaining dog who so many readers hold close to their hearts. 1 029.

John got to know Nancy a little because Red Dog let her sit next to him behind the driver’s seat of the bus, so that he was able to have snatches of conversation with her as he was driving along.

Comments to eBook Red Dog
Trash Obsession
A nice easy, fast read. Lots of smiling and laughs throughout with a PO'd thrown in once in a great while and of course some sadness. It made me wish somehow I could go to Australia just to touch the monument they put up for Red Dog (yes, it's real) and meet some of the people from that area and time.

Just a fantastic story and well worth the price.

This does not bear any real relation to de Bernieres' other work, which is startling and imaginative with brilliant effects, although perhaps a bit of a copy of the magic realism style of his literary heroes such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This is really a children's story I guess about a famous dog much like Jock of the Bushveld, but without the colour and vivacity of Jock's story.

As a story meant more for children I gather it would probably be unfair to compare it to de Bernieres' previous writing which was excellent and superbly researched and realised, as in Captain Corelli's Violin, Birds without Wings, or Senor Vivo and the Coca Lord.

This one is quite sweet and touching but the writing style is very elementary. de Bernieres manages to bring a tear to the eye nonetheless as he still gets to the heart of things and the sadness and tragedy of everyday life, but in this case in a realistic manner which will not cause any untoward psychological damage to any childlike readers but will still gently stir the emotions.

G'day mates! The book was delivered in the morning one day, and I read it straight through in one sitting before bedtime. It made me appreciate my own dog a great deal more than my previous great love for her. There are a few words in the text that are unique to Australia, but the glossary at the end of the book makes these clear. Be prepared to pause once in a while as you read so you might laugh out loud, or clear the tears from your eyes. It's a terrific read!

Loved this book, the language techniques and visual imagery were fabulous and gave me more insite to the areas in which is was written about. To think Red Dog belonged to everybody and was quite nomadic is wonderful, we should love and accept people like we do our four legged animals. So sad he died but what a wonderful life he had. Fabulous book, not deep, an easy read - great in between book.

What is a "tie in"? The film was based on the book. Both were equally delightful in their own separate ways. It's amazing that Louis de Berniere got the aussieness so right, and that the film was able to translate it onto the screen so hilariously.

Perfect and unique. A great read for everyone.

Not the read I expected after Corellie,s violin. Seemed more of a mishmash of short stories without much of a storyline.
There's a tail-wagging good time to be had by all, both young and old. Saw the movie 6 times - read the book twice. Loved every minute of both - again and again! It is indeed touching and heartwarming. You'll cry and you'll laugh... Lucky me to have a copy of the soundtrack, too. What a GREAT story! Woof!
