    1. Dogs are the best kind of people. And if royalty could be measured in terms of wisdom and wit, Nelson decidedly deserved to be 'the' royal dog. I often wish I could be a gecko on the walls of some of the greats of the world how they would think, react and respond to certain situations, and Nelson gave me a wonderful opportunity to actually peek in the homes of one of the most admired/detested women in current history: The Queen of the United Kingdom.The book is full of humor, humanity and a brie [...]


    2. I loved the "Dalai Llama's Cat' series and thought that this would be worth a look. The story is not complex. I liked the underlying story however grappled with the overlay of 'Royal family', it somehow did not resonate or feel plausible. I take into consideration that they are my filters so hence why I continued to see the book through. There are some delightful tears amongst the pages and it quite a suitable read for even younger children.


    3. More like 2 1/2 stars really It's more of a self-help book disguised as a novel, which isn't really my "thing". But, it's a sweet story with some bits of sage advice peppered amongst the paragraphs telling of Nelson's experiences as a royal canine. My favourite, "Knowledge on its own gets us only so far. To be of real benefit, knowledge needs to change our behaviour." So very true in the world of today.



    4. Having read and enjoyed the stories from the Dalai Lama’s cat, I just had to read one from the Queen’s corgi. Just like the other novels by David Michie this one put a smile on my face and made me feel glad that I read it.


    5. Another entertaining story by this author, I loved his Dalai Lama's Cat series, and this book is in the same vein, where we hear the story through the animals point of view. This one happens to be a young corgi, Nelson, adopted by Queen Elizabeth who has two other corgis as well I love how the author always gives us stories and insights that are very meaningful, and really makes one think about our lives and how we can better our quality of life, and of those around us. The dogs are hilarious an [...]


    6. Charming story. First, I love dogs. So any story told by a dog is likely one I will get enjoyment out of. And how can you not find Corgis adorable?


    7. Really loved this! Fans of David's previous books (Dalai Lama's Cat) know the concept. Especially loved the nods at 'The Uncommon Reader' and 'The Alchemist' A very clever and insightful read.


    8. Not my usual fare, and definitely not crime fiction.This is very similar in format to the Michie's other book that I have read THE DALAI LAMA'S CAT, a fictional vehicle for David Michie's Buddhist philosophy.It makes for interesting reading and puts Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the Royal family in interesting light. The Queen is portrayed as a deep and empathetic thinker, as are the younger members of the family.The novel is a series of events involving Nelson, the young Corgi, which test [...]


    9. Our narrator is Nelson, a rescue pup who finds himself living with the Queen and two Senior corgis. He comments on the royal family and its many visitors, and has a very spiritual revelation at the end which left me reaching for a hanky. A very sweet book with some interesting philosophical musings by the author of "The Dalai Lama's Cat", which I now ant to read.


    10. In the same vein as Dalai Lama's Cat, David Michie teaches us spiritual life lessons through the actions of a delightful animal. In this case, there is also a sage elder corgi who imparts words of wisdom in subtle ways to his young friend, Nelson.


    11. Fun and drlightfulGreat read, couldn't put down. Delightful fiction with a great backdrop of real people. Made me want a Corgi of my own.


    12. While weaving a fascinating story, the author provides insights on how to live a more purposeful life. I totally enjoyed reading this book!



    13. Pravděpodobně nejsem cílová skupina této knihy, knihu jsem dočetla, ale se skřípajícími zuby. Míchání fikce a reálných postav není můj šálek čaje.



    14. Another sweet, funny, and thought-provoking novel from David Michie focusing on having a purpose driven life. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the Dalai Lama's Cat series.


    15. I so enjoyed this little story. As with Michie's trilogy on the Dalai Lama's Cat, he infuses a sense of serene, well being that remained with me after I finished the book. He has also captured and illustrated well the differences between dogs and catsmetimes quite humorously. These books also strengthen the possibility that one can develop an inner peace while being confronted with the realities, hardships, struggles and sufferings of life.




    16. This is a delightful little novel that takes on the British royal family from the point of view of one of Her Majesty's favorite dogs. While it is fiction, like Michie's books about the Dalai Lama, the plot feel true. I loved it.
