I applaud James Herbert for this book, This book is one of the reasons why he deserved that OBE he got.

The story is well put together, and while I thought in the first few chapters I may not find this story through the eyes of a dog too interesting, the ensuing 3 chapters hooked me in. The narrator is then dumped at a dog pound where his remembrance of being a man become more pronounced. 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. The Vanished Bride imagines that before they were famous authors the Bronte sisters were amateur sleuths.He is raised by an elderly homeless woman named Bella, who gives him the name Fluke, stating that he is a "fluke by nature, Fluke by name. At the 22nd Saturn Awards, it earned two nominations: Best Fantasy Film and Best Performance by a Younger Actor for Pomeranc.

It was the book that made me really start thinking more about spirituality, and prompted me to start thinking for myself, instead of relying on what the teachers drummed into us during assembly prayers. Somewhere in the depths of his consciousness was memory clawing its way to the surface, tormenting him, refusing to let him rest. Lynch layers his voice with urgency and a desire for revenge as he evokes Fluke's desperate need to find out what happened to him and his human family. 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.I first read ‘Fluke’ when I was an 11 year old, it held me captive: the beauty, hilarity and the thoughts of a whole different world. During all this, Herbert answers the meaning to life, the universe and everything (and it's not 42). Fluke is a 1995 American fantasy drama film directed by Carlo Carlei from a screenplay by Carlei and James Carrington, based on the 1977 novel of the same name by James Herbert. I ran for nearly a day and, when I finally dropped, the last remnants of my old self had been purged.

He was one of our greatest popular novelists, whose books are sold in thirty-three other languages, including Russian and Chinese. I was expecting the plot to end in a certain way and for the most part my assumptions were correct, although I was pleasantly surprised by the twist right at the end. 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). A paperback edition of a horror novel published simultaneously in hardback, which follows a mongrel as he wanders the streets of the city, tormented by a memory deep in his consciousness that he had once been a man.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes animals, spiritual messages, and of course, a fair little dashing of humour. Studded with scenes of humor and moments of revelation, this story will leave listeners ruminating on mortality and the afterlife. He was a stringy mongrel, wandering the streets of the city, driven by a ravenous hunger and hunting a quarry he could not define.

The resulting final stages of the storyline are powerfully emotive, with a wealth of understanding for the deep bonds that have now formed with our principal character and narrator – Fluke. Despite the hippie-style eastern philosophy, I read the whole thing in one sitting, totally engrossed. I loved the book and enjoyed reading Lineker’s thoughts, and also found myself making a mental note, which was simply re-read James Herbert’s Fluke.He’s on the verge of being euthanized, when he makes an escape out the door and into the world at large. The Rats trilogy, The Fog, The Magic Cottage - novels that have a special place in millions of readers’ lives. I was expecting a heart breaking Watership down kind of vibe from this book and I wasn't looking forward to it.
