3,5 stars. I did like the first part of the book. But closer I was getting to the end of the story, stronger I felt uncomfortable with it. It was quite a decent read, not too absorbing and impactful though.

Quite a quirky little story but not exactly sure how I felt about it in the end. Felt very sorry for anna and the dog!
