Publisher's Summary

National Book Award finalist and best-selling author Meg Rosoff's charming, hilarious new novel about a young New Yorker's search for happiness and the two dogs who help him find it - the perfect summer listen.
Jonathan Trefoil's boss is unhinged, his relationship baffling, and his apartment just the wrong side of legal. His girlfriend wants to marry someone just like him - only richer and with a different sense of humor. He doesn't remember life being this confusing back before everyone expected him to act like a grown-up.
When his brother asks him to look after his dogs, Jonathan's worldview begins to shift. Could a border collie and a cocker spaniel hold the key to life, the universe, and everything? Their sly maneuvering on daily walks and visits to the alluring vet suggest that human emotional intelligence may not be top dog after all.
A funny, wise romantic comedy set in Manhattan, Jonathan Unleashed is a story of tangled relationships, friendships, and dogs. Rosoff's novel is for anyone wondering what to be when they grow up and how on Earth to get there.

Jonathan Unleashed

It took a lot to get used to the style of story telling that Luke gave, but once I had got into the story it was a good unusual tale.

Absolutely loved it

I totally loved this book. Already a devotee of Rosoff's YA books, I'm hoping that this will propel her into wider fame; it certainly deserves to. It will appeal to fans of books such as David Nicholl's One Day but it has a gentle, subtle yet incisive humour that is also entirely original. This is just beautiful writing.
As for the performance, I thought it would have been excellent, except for the constant mispronunciation of words. I don't mean American English, I mean that the narrator had apparently simply not come across certain words before: 'glutinous' pronounced as 'gluttonous', for example, or ' orange blossom ' pronounced as if it were blossom that was orange- coloured! These verbal typos and lots of emphasis in the wrong place occurred really quite frequently and were an irritation in what was otherwise a narrative voice well- suited to the story.
