    A truly original concept! Tomorrow, the dog who narrates this fine novel, is more than a century old. He travels Europe searching for his master. Damian Dibben mixes a tear-jerking dog story with an equally tear-jerking people story with a lot of history in the mix. I loved it!...

    The word "Tomorrow" actually refers to the name of the dog in this story, who throughout the book is searching for his master "Vallentyne" a physician by occupation. As the story covers many many years and many great events it must be accepted that the dog lives a very long time. The p...

    The future can offer both hope and despair. For the canine protagonist of this novel, ?tomorrow? augurs a new day filled with hope and possibility. Without that hope he would be bereft of a reason to live. ?Tomorrow we begin again.? The words echo in his mind. It is what his m...

    This dog is more erudite and articulate than most human writers. I love the character. Insightful, observant, wise, and wonderful. But... he's a dog. Grant the writer some willing suspension of disbelief, or you'll miss out on a great story. Yes, I'm all for that. This one opens wit...

    Let's be honest - Damian Dibben is clearly a shill for Kleenex. I'm buying, though. We should all be so fortunate enough to have a champion such as Tomorrow - loyal, tenacious, true. ...

    A book to keep and re-read. A book I will be sending to friends. Forget that I love dogs and the perspective is heart breakingly pure since it is the dog's; this is a poignant, thought provoking book about living and love and family and (oh good grief I could go on--redemption, friends...

    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 review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed by this book. I went into this book with incredibly high expectations so some of that disappointment is of my own making. When I first saw this book's cover, I knew that ...

    Over the decades I would make new companions: Soldiers, Dukes, Gondoliers, but they would die, all of them, from disease or old age. Yet I was sure, in the very core of me, that my true master would return. For if I was still alive, surely so was he. An absolutely beautiful story of a...

    Some of my Goodreads friends will love this book, while others definitely will not. I enjoyed this novel a great deal while acknowledging there are aspects to it that may not attract all readers. It is a fantasy, although the only part that is fantasy is that our main protagonist, a...

    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. From the frost fairs of London, to Venice and Vienna, we follow Champion and Sporca. Alche...

    Tomorrow is a 217 year old dog that has spent over 100 years searching for his master, Valentyne. It is a sad story in some ways as you feel the despair of Tomorrow, but he never gives up and hopes to find him soon. How does a dog live to be 217 years old? Valentyne has concocted a sec...

    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, ...

    Spending a Sunday reading this book was like enjoying a whole day of pet therapy. Tomorrow is such a thoughtful and loyal dog; it is a pleasure to be in his company and to go along with him as he lives through the experience that all best friends of dogs have always had: "What if we tw...

    The story of a man and his very loyal dog, Tomorrow. The master goes missing and the dog stays in Venice waiting for him for 127 years. The tale is told from the view point of Tomorrow and is well written, funny, touching, and a joy to read. This is one of the giveaways I've receive...

    This was one of the best books I have read in a while. This dog is noble, smart, erudite, courageous, faithful and more. If you love dogs (and I do) you would love for dogs to have the type of social interaction, imagination and love that is described in this book. Life is hard and the...

    I loved this book so much! It has everything I like, and more - history, a touch of fantasy, beautiful descriptions and a great deal of humanity, which is funny to say when you know the tale is narrated by a dog. I grew fond of this old and wise dog quite easily (and he's a vege...

    An outstanding, intensely moving saga sweeping through the eras of The Renaissance, English Civil War to Napoleonic Europe and end at the period of the Industrial Revolution. This is a book which doesn?t fit into a specific genre ? it is based on a fantastical premise, provided by ...
