      3.5 stars - It was really good.The book opens with the narrator, a Labrador named Prince, preparing to be euthanized. I was incredibly close to DNF'ing the book right then and there, but I'm thankful I stuck with it. Prince tells the story of how he came to be on death row, which was a result of following the "Labrador Pact", which is what he abides by to protect and keep his human family together. Fans of Shakespeare will appreciate the nod to Henry IV which is mirrored in the relationship betw [...]

      This interesting book is the second adult novel from Mr. Haig, the author of the excellent and heartbreaking Dead Father's Club. The Labrador Pact is told exclusively from the point of view of a labrador named Prince, and the book details Prince's efforts to save his human family from being broken up by the forces of the outside world.The entire book is a kind of extended (but loose) retelling of some of the main issues presented in Shakespeare's history plays. As with Dead Father's Club's rewor [...]

      Warning, dog lovers, do not read this one!This book begins with Prince, a black labrador, being taken to the vet to be put down for vicious behavior.Labradors are, in the book, the only breed that still keep the Pact, which says that the family always comes first. Apparently, Prince's totally screwed up family put him in a situation where, in order to help them, he did something that appeared vicious, and now dogs know he's broken the Pact.While he's at the vet's waiting to be euthanized, he tel [...]

      If you're an animal person, this book may not be for you. I felt sick when I finished, like I'd been kicked in the stomach, and it left me feeling hopeless.The story is told from the dog's point of view. Prince is adopted as a puppy into the home of Adam and Kate and their two children, Hal and Charlotte. Prince abides by the Labrador pact, with a sense of duty toward his family. He must protect them, keep them safe and always be on the lookout for threats to their wellbeing, not just as individ [...]

      I really liked Matt Haig's The Dead Fathers Club, which I found refreshingly new and original. It's great to see that he has other titles, and this one is equally charming if not more so. No, scratch that; it's the best to come my way in a good long while. It's the kind of book I wish I'd written.Prince is a fairly young labrador retriever who has the responsibility of preserving unity in the Hunter family. It turns out labs are the only breed still serious about caring for their masters, who, b [...]

      Máte labradora jménem Lord a v knihkupectví narazíte na knihu, kterou vypráví labrador Princ. To je jasné znamení, no ne?Vzhledem k uvedenému důvodu nákupu jsem od knížky naprosto nic nečekala, a proto bylo příjemným překvapením, že byla fakt dobrá. Jasně, samotná zápletka není nic vrcholně originálního, ale právě psí oči a nos tomu dodávaly šťávu a dělaly příběh ještě depresivnější. Jo jo, žádný milý příběh o zvířatech, ale život jedné rod [...]

    7. Amy Hawthorne says:

      This book was so emotional! I loved it. It's about the unswerving loyalty of the main protagonist, Prince, a Labrador. It was great how comedy was mixed into the sadness, following the labrador pact and the different dog stereotypes. All a bit crazy but heart warming and enjoyable. This book does contain some upsetting topics though and it doesn't end hopefully, but Matt Haig's writing is entertaining and great and I loved it.

    8. Maybaby says:

      Well a jaded reader whose finding it hard to find worthy reads. This one was a worthy read.It's a quick read.I won't spoil it for anyone.It's not a great literary work. It's a fine piece of light modern fiction.

    9. Fence says:

      I really had no idea what to expect from this book, it was simply sitting with the returns at the library and looked vaguely interesting. Plus I follow Haig on twitter despite having read only one of his books, The Radleys. So I picked this up.It is such a good book. But there is something in it that may put off some readers, I’ve even seen a review on where someone rated it 1 stars because of this event, yet they didn’t read the whole book. But it is a spoiler, so I don’t want to give it [...]

      Dog's point-of-view of a family falling apart4.5 starsPrince is a Labrador intent on following the 'code', to protect his Family, to use his canine wiles to do his duty and watch out for them. Tutored by an older Lab, tempted by a Spaniel into breaking the code, Prince does his best to protect the Hunter family as potential marital strife and teenager issues threaten to tear them apart - but can he do anything?The point-of-view of the dog is well considered, and we get the best of both worlds, s [...]

    11. April Andruszko says:

      This is a real page turner. It gives an unusual perspective on family life. It is so moving and sad. what is amazing is how quickly it draws you into its world and you accept its central conceit of the Labrador pact and the relationships between the different dogs. This really reflects the skill of the writer.

    12. Nahalefa says:

      Herzerwärmend! In wunderschöner, einfacherer Schrift schafft es Matt Haig mal wieder, mich zu Tränen zu rühren. Großartiger Autor, von dem ich gerne noch viel hören möchte. Und mit diesem Buch steht es fest: ich werde einmal einen schwarzen Labradorrüden haben und ihn Prince nennen, damit er die Chance bekommt, die er verdient.

    13. Liz says:

      So far this year I've read books where the protagonist has been a chimp, a zombie and an alien. In this book, the protagonist is a dog - a Labrador. The entire book is narrated by Prince, pet dog of The Family. It tells the story of how Labradors must follow the Labrador Pact in order to protect the family who they serve. All dogs understand human language and are constantly trying to communicate this understanding with their masters. This book raises many questions about faith, loyalty and obed [...]

      oved this book.Simple tale told from the family labrador (Prince).You know that he is in trouble from the start when he reveals on the first page that he is about to be put down. The question is how did he get there.The labradors have a pact to protect the family and prince's family are in trouble. The parents are fighting and the father is about to embark on an affair with the hippy new neighbor. There is some history here, as it transpires that the hippy is married to the fathers former best f [...]

    15. Hollowspine says:

      Although I gave this book four stars it is not because I "really liked it." The book was written from a dog's perspective. And it was very well done. That alone deserves a lot of credit, to write an entire novel from dog POV and have it work beautifully and not come out like a joke is very difficult. The plot and story flowed gracefully towards the conclusion, not heavy handed at all. Overall a very well-written tight novel.But having finished the story I feel depressed. Everything was so dark, [...]

    16. Gooddeeds says:

      This is really original with a great writing style, I loved it right up to the end.we knew what was going to happen, and it would be a cop-out if there was a last-minute reprieve, but the reasons why Prince ended up being put to sleep were horrible. It was obviously meant to be like that, to shock everyone and be realistic because that was what would probably happen to a dog in that situation, but the ending was just too brutal and horrible, for him to lose his life for those reasons and it spoi [...]

    17. Line says:

      It's a while since I read this, but I remember two things:1. It’s a good book2. I was incredibly sad on behalf of the dog, Prince (the narrator), whose only wish is to help his family and keep them all together.If you’re an empathic animal-lover, it will probably leave you feeling quite depressed by the end of it. I had to go and hug my dog tightly when I was done.

    18. Dreamydreamer says:

      This book was a good read, it made me look at my own dogs behaviour! I'm glad I don't let my dog see me naked, at least if he writes a book he can't describe me! I found it slightly menacing - which bothers me - the words - "she collects people" has stayed with me. I got that dark feeling at the end of the first third and didn't want to pick it up, but I cannot leave a unfinished book (it feels wrong) and after this I found it easier! Not predictable and finishes well.

    19. Kim says:

      I don't like to read dog-centered books because the dog always seems to die through no fault of his own and it's very sad. This story follows that blueprint as well (don't worry, I didn't ruin anything, you find out early on). Like in The Art of Racing in the Rain, this story is narrated by the dog and is often humorous. The plot seems a little far-fetched, but there's an unexpected twist toward the end that made me appreciate the book more.

    20. Eliza says:

      The four-star rating owes a lot to Simon Jones, who is an amazing narrator. I'd listen to anything he does on audio - he brings things to a whole other level. Other than that the story was good and the narrator engaging, even if the premise was a little hard to swallow. I liked how every scene is described according to smell, and I admired how loyal and sincere Prince is even if it doesn't always work out for him.

    21. Melanie Chapman says:

      Bit silly. Written by a Labrador. Enough said. Easy to read though.

    22. Cousin It says:

      I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys YA books. Just keep in mind it is based on one of Shakespeare's more tragic histories. Cool website too-labradorpact/

    23. Helen says:

      Read in 2013. Beautifully written, but absolutely broke my heart, which is not technically a truly valid reason for not enjoying a book, but I could barely stand the very real pain of reading this novel. At the time of reading, I had a beloved and cherished, very frail and elderly lab/collie (his name was Sam, and he's in my profile picture) and I suppose that was why the subject matter of gorgeous dogs was so raw and painful to me. I can remember sobbing reading this. I couldn't bring myself to [...]

    24. Plum-crazy says:

      An entertaining read, both funny & sad, about a familys problems as seen by their dog Prince. Prince, being a Labrador, lives by the "Labradors Pact","Duty Over All"& as he sees his familys life being ripped apart, he knows it is up to him to keep the family together. But will he be led astray by a Springer Spaniel who believes in "Pleasure not Duty"?I liked the way different characteristics were given to the different breeds of dog, (I expect Labradors to steadfast & reliable wherea [...]

    25. Alanna says:

      This quickly escalated from "where is this going?" to "holy stuff, that was heavy". God, this is why I love Matt Haig. I have been a pet owner my whole life and there were moments in this book that brought me to tears thinking about how unconditionally our pets love us. It's something you can easily take for granted while living out the day to day routine. I'm not much for unhappy endings and I was hoping down to the last sentence of this book that it would end differently (even though the very [...]

    26. Lauren says:

      (Dug review out of the depths of LiveJournal.)This is not a good book. This is a bit of a terrible book rushing headlong to its inevitable ending, hoping desperately that the reader will be serious affected! by the emotions that are in no way available as the ending unfolds. Also, a complete waste of the ending, because nothing is fixed and everything is still shit. A little bit like Mark Haddon (more A Spot of Bother, which was similarly flawed [but better], than A Curious Incident.)

    27. Peter says:

      Narrated by Prince, a Labrador, this is a moving and profound novel (based on the plot of Henry IV, Part I) where the “Labrador Pact”, of always serving and looking out for the family of their owner is put to the test. The Hunters are a fairly normal nuclear family but the pressures of modern life are making it hard for Prince to keep them happy and Prince’s own role is being subverted by rebellious Springer spaniels. It all gradually comes together to a sad but seemingly inevitable conclu [...]

    28. Lisa Green says:

      The first book I've ever read that made me want to rip it into shreds when I finished it! I'm angry! I just finished reading it & I feel nauseous. I feel like I was conned by its jovial-looking cover design & easy synopsis. This book should come with a strong warning!Please do not read if you are a dog lover, worse a dog owner. The last few chapters are terribly shocking & not in a good way. Awful. Truly awful.

    29. Jenny says:

      I was hopeful throughout the book as I really enjoyed having a dog as the narrator! How sweet!! However, I was so irritated at the last quarter of the book it ruined the whole experience for me and I left it on the airplane to be thrown away. I couldn't bring myself to let anyone I know read this book.

    30. Holly Vivian says:

      3.5 stars. compelling, as I've come to expect Matt Haig's writing to be, and among the great animal books. I'm not a "dog person", but that didn't stop me from enjoying this beautiful tragedy. Creative reworking of Henry IV Part I, both funny and sad while maintaining a quirky engaging tone and thoughtful exploration of human nature.
