I'm trying not to be greedy here, but I love the Chet and Bernie stories, and the last couple have only been short stories (the Chet "prequel" and now this darling little Iggy tale). I'm happy for every word, line and paragraph that Spencer Quinn writes. He captures a way of"Dog-Think" that is at times very funny, and at other times really quite poignant, even philosophical, imagining the world from a dog's perspective. But I sure miss the longer books.
This one involves the neighbors. The wife is hospitalized, and somehow Iggy gets loose on the floors of the hospital and can't be found. Which is the setup for Chet and Bernie to solve a little mystery on the side, as they search for Iggy.
If you have never listened to any from this series, this would be okay. But if you are a long time fan of The World According To Chet, as I have been for quite some time, I think this works better to be heard after already knowing the characters. As always, Jim Frangione narrates very well. I have never read a Chet and Bernie book in paper form, so Mr. Frangione IS Chet to me. It is an adorable series. Chet is both smart and at times, hilarious. For something light, this whole series is really fun.
But, please, Mr. Quinn, how about another full-length book?

From Chet's point of view, Iggy MIA means he's probably out having fun. However, a mystery is involved and our sleuths save the day.
As always, Jim Frangione has the narration of a short attention span and dog reasoning perfect!
