Quirky tale about a traveling salesman that steals a neglected black lab puppy. Quick read, good ending. ( )
  ssimon2000 | May 31, 2016 |
Weird, weird, weird. Joe finds a black lab puppy while on an out-of-town business meeting and decides that it's his responsibility to rescue the puppy from its owners, who may or may not be neglecting it. Thru a series of more and more bizarre events, we watch Joe's life spiral out of control over the course of one weekend as he takes one extreme action after another in order to "rescue" this dog. He loses his job, alienates his friends, is beat up, and eventually arrested. All in this weekend, all over a dog he had never seen before. I'm not really sure what the point of the story is? Maybe there isn't meant to be a point, but the feel good ending didn't quite somehow mesh with the rest of the story. The art and writing are sparse and direct, which helps add to the story's semi-noir crime feeling. ( )
