Timbuktu by Paul Auster

"How not to think his mas­ter was gone when the hand that had been mas­sag­ing his skull sud­denly slid off him and fell life­lessly to the ground?"

Happy new year fellow readers. I am happy to announce that on the 2nd day of the year, I've already completed reading my first book and it happens to be another tick on the 1001 list- double yay! 

Fortunately, my literary journey this year begins with a fantastic little read. This tale, narrated by a dog, Mr Bones ( love the name), is beautifully realised. His master, Willy G Christmas is dying, bound for the afterlife which he calls Timbuktu and he fears that he will be separated for eternity.

Mr Bones will face new challenges, endure name changes, and keep you mesmerised by his journey.
