Nigel: My Family and Other Dogs by Monty Don

A 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 (dog)

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 Being a dog lover, and own a much loved Labrador who's very much a family member ,I was completely engrossed in the book as soon as I started reading it and did not want to put it down. A must read. Please sign in to write a review. If you have changed your email address then contact us and we will update your details.

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.
