This may very well be the hardest review I ve ever had to write Maybe that s why I ve put off writing it for so long I read the book two months ago and find myself still thinking about itI decided to revisit this one because it reminded me so much of this historical gothic tale I just read and I wanted to compare it to my thoughts of this oneI really liked this book but I m not uite sure why The plot is confusing and disturbing but at the same time magical and captivating This book could actually be referenced as a literary conundrum the emotions it conjures contradict each other most of the characters are grotesue and awful but on the same token sympathetic and the ending left me with such a horrible feeling Melancholy unease disturbing imagery but overall it was just sad I think I literally read the last sentence closed my book and just stared at the cover for 10 minutes or so just to take in everything that I d readI have no idea where Kirsten Bakis got the idea for this novel and as she hasn t to my knowledge published anything else I have nothing else to reference as I ponder over this unusual plot The novel takes place mostly in New York City in a time unknown when Monster Dogs gargantuan dogs that can walk upright talk dress and otherwise act like humans mysteriously immigrate to the city and take up residence in a hotel The dogs are adorned in early 20th century Prussian dress and seem to be very well mannered and old fashioned and have become celebrities of sorts We see the action through the eyes of Cleo a young writer living in the city who becomes swept up in the dogs mysterious and attractive world The present action written from Cleo s POV is interspersed with journal entries from Ludwig the German Shepherd historian of the Monster Dogs and that of Augustus Rank the German scientist a la Dr Frankenstein who made the dogs and is thus their God and CreatorLike Cleo I was completely swept up in the dogs saga even though the concept is completely absurd and disturbing Some of the dogs are lovely characters but a lot of them are snobbish vulgar rude and unfriendly and I m uite convinced that had they been human the reader would immediately hate them However that could not be farther from the case I hurt for these dogs wanted to ease their pain and loneliness and dreaded their descent into madness view spoilerA little farther along in the novel the dogs decide to build a mansion in Manhattan that will house most of them and will also serve as a public museum for the people of the city who have been so kind and welcoming to them A party is thrown at the mansion upon its completion and what ensues is on one level maddening repulsive and unsettling but at its core is truly sad The dogs are all suffering from a mysterious disease in which they find themselves reverting back to regular house dogs Most of them instead of succumbing to the debilitating illness decided to take manners in to their own hands and commit suicide while the humans around them are forced to watch Cleo is there throughout everything that happens and we are thrown into the action just as she is We feel her frustration in trying so desperately to help her friends who simply do not want her help and our hearts break with hers as she is forced to stand by and watch fate take its turn hide spoiler

A few months ago I read Carmen Dog by Carol Emshwiller and obviously I was reminded of this since both are New York novels featuring intelligent talking canines when I picked up Bakis s book In reality the two are uite different creations Emshwiller s is a feminist surrealist satire while Bakis a significantly disciplined writer has produced a very moving book that while not without its own satirical and surrealist moments approaches its subject matter almost reverentially Back at the end of the 19th century and first part of the 20th mitteleuropean sociopath Augustus Rank had a dream of creating by use of prosthetics dogs that could walk and talk Fleeing eventually to Canada where he founded a remote settlement to further his project he was still never to see the success he craved Those who survived him however did manage to bring into being the monster dogs of the book s title dogs who in our present the book s near future massacre their human creators and come to New York in hope of finding their place in human society and also of rediscovering their own past By happenstance a young woman called Cleo becomes their chronicler You might expect that those chronicles of hers would comprise the novel s text but no here we have Cleo s own informal reminiscences of her encounters and interactions with some of the canine leaders and intellectuals plus various documents even including an opera libretto depicting the dogs past Far too soon though the dogs realize they can have no future that their construction includes irreparable flaws and they prepare the way for their species to have a dignified exit To say this book is odd would be trite and also misleading because one of the wonderful things about it is that it s almost not odd before very long I found myself accepting its narrative which avoids all temptations to lurch into Dr Moreau territory as something uite naturalistic as if there were nothing outrageous at all about a community of talking dogs having implausible adventures in NYC This is a haunting marginally disuieting book that I suspect I ll be remembering for a very long time to come
