Kurzbeschreibung

3. Februar 2009

Abby has just arrived in Summerville, Ohio, with her placid Newfoundland, Bowser. She’s reluctantly inherited her grandmother’s coffee shop, but it’s not long before she’s brewing up trouble in the form of magical baked goods and steaming up her life with an exasperating college professor.

And then there’s Daisy, a web code writer, and her hyperactive Jack Russell, Bailey. Her tightly-wound world spins out of control when she discovers the chaos within and meets a mysterious dog trainer whose teaching style is definitely hands-on.

Finally there’s Shar, professor of ancient history at Summerville College, who wakes up one morning to find her neurotic dachshund, Wolfie, snarling at an implacable god sitting at her kitchen table, the first thing in her life she hasn’t been able to footnote.

What on earth is going on in this unearthly little town? It’s up to Abby, Daisy, and Shar to find out before an ancient goddess takes over Southern Ohio, and they all end up in the apocalyptic doghouse…

3.0 von 5 Sternen Man braucht Phantasie 2. November 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
Ich habe den Titel bestellt und ging davon aus, einen typischen Jenny Crusie-Roman zu erhalten: Sie trifft ihn - es gibt ein paar Schwierigkeiten - am Ende kriegen sie sich dann aber doch.
Die Story entsprach nicht ganz meinen Erwartungen: mir war sie etwas zu realitätsfern, ich las und las und wartete darauf, dass sich alles aufklärt und es eine logische Erklärung für die Situation der Protagonisten gibt.
FAZIT: Es gibt keine logische Erklärung, sondern es kommt TATSÄCHLICH eine jahrtausendealte Göttin ins moderne Amerika.
Für diejenigen die auf derartiges stehen sicher ein tolles Buch - für alle anderen ganz nett.
Ansonsten wie immer witzig geschrieben und auch mit den drei Frauen, um die sich alles dreht konnte ich mich ganz gut identifizieren.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 4.5 Stars! 20. Februar 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
Abby Richmond inherited the Temple Street Coffeehouse from her grandmother. Abby's mother wants to sell it, but Abby does not know what she will end up doing with it. When Professor Christopher Mackenzie shows up, he explains that Abby will either have to bake the cookies for a reception tomorrow or somehow refund the deposit he had given to her grandmother. As Abby ponders her unexpected dilemma, she reads a flyer about "The Kammani Gula Dog Obedience Course" that swears it can teach her to communicate with her dog, Bowser.

Daisy Harris spent two horrible days dogsitting her mother's seventeen pounds of Jack Russell named Bailey. Daisy's mother claims to have suddenly become allergic to her dog. But after the two days of dealing with the uncontrollable dog her mother claims that Daisy must keep Bailey at least another week. That is when a flyer about a dog obedience course shows up. As they approach the meeting place, Noah, a handsome dog trainer, appears.

Ancient History Professor Shar Summer has hit middle age, is frustrated with her boyfriend, and is doing her best to fulfill the promise of completing her grandmother's book about a goddess named Kammani Gula. Shar is about to give up on the book (and the boyfriend) when a flyer hits her. What could it hurt? It might actually help. So Shar and her dog, Wolfie, go to the obedience course. It is during the meeting that Shar talks with the instructor, claiming to be Kammani, and spies a statue of Samu-la-el, Slayer of Demons, who was once sacrificed by Kammani.

Abby, Daisy, and Shar come together. As they exit the meeting, after drinking Kammani's tonic, the three start to REALLY communicate with their dogs.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr gewollt und ziemlich albern 23. Februar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Normalerweise lese ich die Bücher von Jennifer Crusie sehr gerne, weil sie amüsant und gut geschrieben sind.
Dieses hier finde ich sehr weit her geholt - die Hauptpersonen stellen fest, dass sie Göttinnen sind, die in den USA leben und sich gegen eine andere Göttin durchsetzen müssen. Dazu kommen, wie immer bei Crusie, viele Hunde, und wie oft, ein Plätzchenladen.
Ein paar der Dialoge sind ganz witzig, aber insgesamt ist es das erste Buch von Jennifer Crusie, von dessen Kauf ich klar und deutlich abraten würde. Da ist die Zeit zu schade zum Lesen :-(.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I should have known better.... 10. Februar 2009
Von the Peripatetic Gardener - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Jennifer Crusie is one of the best contemporary light fiction authors publishing. But 'Dogs and Goddesses' doesn't read like a Crusie book at all. She is famous for her attention grabbing opening sentences, the sexy tension between the major characters, and her laugh aloud lines. I didn't find any of that here. I strongly suggest that potential readers glance at the first page or two of this book; it pretty well predicts what is to come. Some people seem to enjoy it; I didn't. I found it difficult, even after I'd read half the book, to tell the three major characters apart. There were a few funny lines, but nothing like what I'd come to expect from Crusie. I've also enjoyed Anne Stuart's books in the past, and I can't find many if any traces of her strong characterizations and interesting plots here either. I should have known to read the reviews at Amazon before I bought.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Gave up after chapter 10 10. Februar 2009
Von Quirky Girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I was such a fan of Agnes and the Hitman (Jennifer Crusie) that I couldn't wait to read something new by author Crusie. D&G started off clunky. Dogs began to talk after 3 women drank a magic tonic. The women's responses to the talking dogs were cliche. In fact, most of the book is a cliche. These authors, Rich, Crusie, and Stuart, have written several books on their own, yet together, the story felt as if was crafted by three highschool girls in their first creative writing class.
I couldn't help but roll my eyes during the cliche sex scenes. I finally gave up after chapter 10 (I usually give up after the 3rd/4th chapter if I don't synch with a book). I really wanted to like this book. I kept hoping it would get better-but it went from clunky, to better, to bad, to outright silly.
That's just me, though.
I will be looking forward to Crusie's new book w/ Mayer. Not giving up just yet.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed Expections 28. Februar 2009
Von UniqueAngl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I love Jennifer Crusie. I like reading about super-natural phenomena and I'm a complete animal lover, so "Dogs & Goddesses" sounded like a great read to me. Unfortunately, I found it to be a total flop. The plot is barely existent, the characters are shallow. I was completely and utterly disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen dogs, goddesses, cookies, and friendship 6. Februar 2009
Von she reads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
What can I say- I love dogs and goddesses... so I had high expectations for this book. Actually, I expected a series of separate short stories (since there are 3 authors) and instead was delighted to a 380+ page novel that warmed my heart and delighted me at every moment. Yes, I loved it.

The story is of three women (strangers really) who find themselves bound together as friends as they learn about their history, battle an ancient goddess, talk to dogs, find their true loves, and really come into their own individually and as a trio. Just imagine going to a dog class only to find an ancient goddess has summoned you there and you're expected to be one of her priestesses. Oh, and now you can talk to dogs (and they have definite personalities and opinions!)

I just love it- blending ancient with new, myth with reality... it's a super fun ride.The authors did make up their goddess and her history- a detail I think was wise. Based in modern day Ohio it was interesting to see how an ancient goddess would (NOT) fit in. She thought a plague would kill people, but it was for a disease easily treated these days. She expects people to bow down to her and obey... yet they don't. At the same time the three new goddesses are discovering their power, primal knowledge, and so much more. Reading from all four of these goddesses was a treat and made this a book I couldn't put down.

Smart, funny, and a total delight this book lit my inner goddess for sure! The path to being a goddess for Abby, Daisy, and Shar is paved with cookies, dogs, tonic, love, a temple, a goddess, and lots of female friendship. I can't wait to re-read it again and again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun with Goddesses 3. März 2010
Von Debra Louise Scott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Dogs And Goddesses
By Jennifer Crusie, Anne Stuart, and Lani Diane Rich
Published by St. Martin's Press, 2009

Review by Debra Louise Scott

You bake cookies and suddenly an orgy breaks out all around you. You click your Bic pen and stuff just `happens' to people. Painting your kitchen gives you an orgasm. And, oh yeah, the dogs are talking to you. No, I mean really, they're TALKING! To badly paraphrase a song: Who let the Gods out? Woof, woof, woof, woof!

Dogs And Goddesses is somewhat akin to Neil Gaiman's American Gods at least from the standpoint of ancient deities living ordinary lives and having to work their way around modern conventions and conveniences. But whereas Gaiman's gods are schlepping around America with their own agenda, using the protagonist like a pawn in their game, the three main characters of this story have to deal with deity inside their heads competing for control over daily life in an otherwise sleepy college town.

When a Goddess from Mesopotamia (a fictional contemporary of Ishtar) is called into being at the site of a transplanted Ziggurat, aided and abetted by a family that has remained loyal to her from ancient times, the three women find themselves caught up in a war of divine proportions. The Goddess, accompanied by her retinue of dogs, tries to set up her temple like it used to be in the old days, but times have changed and it's not so easy to get people to worship and swear blind allegiance anymore. She's not pleased and unleashes divine mayhem.

The Three along with their dogs go through a great trial and error period learning to control the heritage they discover inside themselves, a good part of which is an eroticism of mythological proportions! It takes all of that and a sacrificial God to turn the tables on the Ziggurat Goddess.

This cleverly written book is a fun read, and will ring bells of recognition to anyone in the esoteric arts who has experienced the odd sensation of having deity `in your head' in the form of ritual invocation or as some traditions would say, `riding'. It's especially fun for dog-lovers, hearing the canine perspective of the human's world.
