Nigel my family and other dogs
Nigel: My Family and Other Dogs by Monty DonA lovely, light read. This book takes us through Montys time at Longmeadow and he shares memories of the changes he and his family have made/ lived through and the various and many different doggy companions that have shared in this. He details highlights from his first dogs as a young man right through to Nigel and the ups and downs along the way. There is no sentimental clap trap within - the only regrets hinted at are those where Monty delayed doing the right thing by a pet dog to meet his own emotional needs. He does not ever attempt to anthropomorphise either which I was particularly glad of!
The writing style is much as Monty narrates Gardeners World - gentle and thoughtful. Anyone who enjoys either their garden and/ or pets will enjoy.
Nigel vs. Gardener
A excellent read, not only does it show that he is a good gardener he is also a very good author. A great read for everyone who loves Nigel - and who doesn't? It's a beautifully written account of all the dogs that have been a major part of Monty Don's life, from his childhood pets through to the
Nigel: My Family and Other Dogs
Not to be missed. Even if you don't garden, and are not a keen dog lover, this is a brilliant book. Monty Don has such a great relationship with his dogs and writes so frankly about his life. I couldn't put it down. Will keep and read again in the future. Well done Monty for such a truly enjoyable book.
