If there are guardian angels among us, surely Benny is one of them. Gently challenged and benignly observant, he lives with his long-suffering mother in the quirky and charming town of Mayfield. Benny is qualified for only one job: walking dogs. At that task, he is without peer. But Benny is more than a simple friend to the town’s canines; he brings the same guileless compassion to the people around him. Sweet and honest, offering poignant loyalty, he changes their lives.
Life is not as simple as he seems.
When I first came into the world of reviewing books, I gave myself a 100 page limit. If after the first 100 pages I was not getting into a book, than I would stop. With this book, it almost became that way. However, for some strange reason, I didn't want to give up on this book. I was hoping that it would bloom to my liking. As I continued, this book did get better but in the end it was a book that wasn't right for me.
I thought when first looking at this book that it was to be about a person walking dogs and it was. However, it focused on him and the life that he was apart of around him. With helping a friend sell drugs, to signing up for a prostitute but only to talk with her. Benny was a person that could be a person to talk about problems with. Not only because he has a set of his own problems but also because I believe he would be a good person to talk with.
Overall, I kept waiting for this book to bring about something I could sink my teeth into. Like I said before, this book is not for me but there are many people who I believe who would love to read the story of Benny...The Dog Walker.
I give this book 3 souls!
*This book contains drug selling, mention of prostitutes
