I believe a reviewer should finish a book before submitting a review. What do you think?
A middle aged man and his dog go on an adventure. They leave their comfortable life to meet people and see parts of America unknown. This memoir is sweet and touching, Mr. Steinbeck clearly loves people and his special dog Charley. I had to give an extra star to this book for the authors spot-on (no pun intended ) description of Charley, his standard poodle. I dare say they are all alike, and yet we who own and care for Standards think each of ours is so very unique.
A nice read, a kind man and his pup meet people and reflect. I liked this book quite a lot.
This book held my interest throughout. The main character is not terribly likable but that's okay as far as I'm concerned. I did want to hear about her adventures on the trail, her conflicting feelings about her family; how she was raised by her mother. I had a hard time in the beginning listening to this narrator and this brought the book down for me. Ms. Dunne has narrated other books I've listened to and I do not remember being bothered before by her voice/tone, but it took me over half this book to become accustomed to her narration style. So overall even with her annoying voice, this is a solid book and worth a listen.
