Description

The novel itself centres on Fluke, a mongrel who wanders the streets, driven by hunger and hunting a quarry he can not define. Fluke’s experiences with humans is mixed but he never manages to settle into a happy co-existence with them though he is always drawn back to them.

Despite the hippie-style eastern philosophy, I read the whole thing in one sitting, totally engrossed. Its an easy read and I always find that if I have another chance, maybe a dog would not be a bad place to start. After Bella dies of an illness, Fluke meets a street-wise dog named Rumbo who takes him to see a man named Bert who feeds them.Fluke es un perro que nos cuenta su historia desde el primer momento que tiene conciencia, al conocer otros animales se va dando cuenta que es más listo que el resto e incluso tiene memoria de otra vida, el antes era un ser humano, alguien que tenia familia y fue asesinado.

In Japan, Fluke was released on VHS on July 5, 1996 by Warner Home Video under the MGM/UA Family Entertainment label (which was presented in the theatrical version). We follow his story - which is told in the first person (or rather dog) - from being in a litter of pups, through his boisterous time of adolescence whilst living on the streets, to becoming an adult and his quest to find out the truth about his past.This “explanation” is the sort of lazy-minded cod-mysticism I won’t bother going into, but the story itself is anything but: it’s gritty, poignant, often funny—and with a real extra twist at the end I didn’t see coming at all. Mercifully the answers evaded me; if they hadn’t, if they had come roaring through at that point, I think I should have become insane. A chilling story of madness and murder, The Fog is a classic horror novel from James Herbert, author of The Rats.

This is very different from James Herbert’s usual fiction—a fantasy rather than horror, and more touching, even funny. I have read books a bit similar to it (White Fang, Marley and Me, and the Redwall series to name a few) but this one is still unique. The descriptions of the diminutive world as seen through the eyes of a mongrel and his tormenting memories rising from the depths of his consciousness are a delight to read. It seemed then as if I were seeing sky for the first time, and in a way I was, through different eyes.What if waves after waves of unexplainable emotions and hazy memories drive your little body towards an unknown goal, only to find that sometimes even your most trusted memories can be warped and distorted beyond truth? Mientras interpreta a su manera todos los eventos que lo rodean, poco a poco empieza a darse cuenta de que es más que un perro porque, sin la menor duda, antes fue un humano y además recuerda buena parte de su vida.

On a hunch, Fluke goes to the graveyard where he had been buried and finds Brian there, who had been locked in by an unaware groundskeeper. When you read the blurb of this book, the plot may seem template based on the surface, but the fluency and the make-believe manner, in which he describes the common sights, sounds and smells that surround us humans re-scaled from the sensory viewpoint of the canine is one of strengths of the book. I'm not usually a big fan of stream-of-consciousness writing, and though this is only very loosely SOC, Herbet weaves the story together so well that I didn't really notice.The book has been inscribed and signed by the author to the title page : ' To Philip, thank you for enjoying the book so much - It's appreciated, all best wishes, James Herbert. I hadn't considered reading Fluke before seeing the slightly soppy movie adaptation of it, when I was about 9 or 10, being as the front cover resembled those of the many other James Herbert books my parents owned- all of which, I believed to be quite scary. Fluke is a dog, he realises from a young age that he isn't normal, he then goes on an adventure to discover the truth about himself. I guess the plot morphs from a canine reincarnation through to a murder whodunnit - with the obligatory twist at the end.
