"Kress's engrossing thriller shows a range of reactions from the community. Her bio notes she lives with 'the world's most spoiled toy poodle' and that kind of attachment is evident in the strong feelings of her characters." -Denver Post "Kress, a witty and engaging writer, creates chilling suspense as twisty as a DNA double helix." --Publishers Weekly "Her style is devilishly inventive, her characters are more than cardboard cut-outs, and they wrestle with important issues--medical and ethical--every step of the way." --CNN.com "Full of suspense and creepy details...delivers on the potential of its gripping premise." --San Francisco Chronicle "...an appealing mix of horror, thriller, allegory, and satire...biting satire." --Locus "...a page turner...unusual and refreshing. Highly recommended." --Monster Librarian "...a near-future techno-thriller, with a touch of Stephen King. Fine work..." --Asimov's "Dogs is the kind of thriller that continually makes you want to turn the pages faster than you can read them." --SF Site "In my opinion, Nancy Kress is one of the best science-fiction authors of today... Kress has the magical ability of weaving amazing plot, believable science, and intriguing characters into a coherent whole." --Blogcritics "Kress has a flair for punchy melodrama." --Washington Post "...a spine-chilling, suspense-laden story of pets turned unwitting killers." --Publishers Weekly
