Dingo is a quick read, diverting YA material. Not awesome, but it executes its goals well.
The characters are solidly teenager – no ageless truths on display, really.
Good narrative voice, and it incorporates the mythology very plausibly – no painful whacks by the baton of exposition.
I’d had no idea that de Lint wrote so much YA material. Makes me feel old 😦
Fine for the kiddies, though I don’t know if the lads will actually get into it. Perhaps we’ll have a guest-blogger comment on it for us later.
