This was a fascinating idea for a story and the historical span of the book was very rewarding. The author really brings the different periods of history to life with his well researched details.

This aspect of Tomorrow ...more
This book was really good I was hooked by the second page. There are a lot of twists and turns and surprises. You never new what was next.I would recommend this book to everyone.

I won an ARC of this book from Goodreads Giveaways.
Tomorrow is a beautifully written novel which draws the reader into the world of a dog searching for his master. Dibben provides a thoughtful look at the human race through the eyes of man's most loyal friend. Through the eyes of this insightful puppy, we celebrate the great achievements of mankind and witness the horrors we are capable of inflicting.
Yet, I struggle to say much more about this novel. The middle of the story lags a bit and conta ...more
What a magical couple of days I've had reading my now favorite book. This book was written for every person who has ever loved their dog, their best friend, their champion. "Tomorrow" will make you smile and make you cry, it will remind you on every page why dogs are the purest souls, and why they make us be better people.
I will read this book over and over again. I will treasure it.
Now excuse me while I go find my dog so I can whisper to her that I love her, then smother her with hugs and kiss ...more
