Dachshund Book Review-The Unincorporated Man

Sasha here. I know. I know. I have been away so long. But, you don't understand, spring is here and a doxie can't miss the sunshine and flower sniffing you know. Plus, Mommy decided to go to the library (not so sure I like a place that doesn't allow doxies), and got this book called The Unincorporated Man by a couple of humans called Dani and Eytan Kollin. So Mommy and me have spent most of the time outside in the sun reading this book and of course rolling in the grass a bit.
What? You say that dachshunds can't read. Wells, here is a bit of a secret we don't tells everyone. WE CAN!

So here is my doxie review of this book. It is really quite good as far as those human science fiction stories go. I prefer dog books myself and of course the Dachshund Guide To Taking Over The World (now in its 2nd edition-woohoo!). I am hoping for the rawhide cover myself, but we will haves to see whats I get. Oh, sorry dachshund diverting from the subject again. It is basically set in about 300 years in the future. A man gets frozen from like our time and is thawed out in the future when every single person from the time they are born is incorporated and owned in the form of stocks by others. Kind of creepy cause we dogs know what it is like to be owned, and well it ain't great for a lot of my fellow canines. I is a lucky one and has a Mommy who understands me and my special doxie needs. But, still on paper she does own me. Someday that will change, but for now it is just something we dogs have to live with. I won't tell you how the book ends, but it is a good page turner, and I did even get Charlie interested in it a couple times. I smells a sequel though cause there was this whole untouched plot of these avatars that were computer people that had a whole virtual universe that the humans had no clue existed. I could really relate to that cause humans work with us dogs every day and have no clue about our true intelligence either if you knows what I means. hint hint. Well, it is a good four paws up read if you get a chance and I don't say that very often about books that don't contain dog characters so you know it has gots to be good. I wonder if the next library book is going to be as good as this one.
Until the next time I bark at you, doxie kisses, Sasha.
