Review of Dead Dog Like Me by Max Davis

Although the book's description sounded intriguing, I wasn't sure if I would like the story. It seemed a little unusual from the description. As it happened my oldest daughter- who is a voracious reader like me- snatched up the book before I could read it. She thoroughly enjoyed it and kept telling me how good it was. So, by the time I actually began to read, I had pretty high expectations.

I wasn't disappointed by Dead Dog Like Me. The story is an interesting one. Readers can relate to Nick Gregory's downward spiral. Haven't most of us made bad decisions that seemed to lead to other bad decisions? He's a fairly well developed character, so readers get to know him. And most of the book is told from his first person perspective.

The "flashback" scenes were fairly well done. They were straight forward and not confusing, which I think is the danger in those scenes for the reader. There were a few places where the perspective changed from Nick's first person to a third person perspective focusing on his wife. This confused me a little.

Despite that shift being a little awkward, I really enjoyed the book. The story was interesting as well as thought provoking and inspiring. It contains a message of grace and hope without being at all "preachy."

I give Dead Dog Like Me 4 stars and a PG rating for content. You can find it on Amazon here.

Nick Gregory regains consciousness after a horrific car accident to find he’s been transported back in time and that he has become Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s son and King Saul’s grandson. Aware that he’s experiencing another man’s life, he has to learn fast. When mega-church pastor, Nick Gregory, regains consciousness after a horrific car accident, he’s on the ground in agonizing pain. Nick realizes he is in a bizarre place – a foreign, parched, ancient land, having been transported back in time to 800 B.C. Unbelievably, he is in the body of a prince named Mephibosheth, a son of Jonathan and King Saul’s grandson. Nick is fully aware of who he is and that he’s now living in Mephibosheth’s body, strangely able to speak and understand Hebrew. This experience helps him see that he, like Mephibosheth, is a broken man desperate for God’s outrageous grace and healing (2 Samuel 9:8). Returning to present day, Nick’s experience motivates a changed life.
