Better than expected
Chance - the pit bull. His reflections on life mirror those of all of us who have struggled to survive on occasion.
When Chance was put in the pit bull ring the last time.
It took me several chapters to fully engage with the two primary characters as this was my first experience listening to a book about pit bulls. I thought the author did a wonderful job with the perspective of the dog ("Chance") and the ending was.................well, you will have to listen to it but I promise you will like this book. It wasn't quite as good in my opinion as "The art of racing in the rain" but came close.
A story started with rage, evolved to the encounter of a perfect chance, fate perhaps for two species at the time when a void desperately needed to be filled by one with an infinite capacity to fulfil. Peppered with bits and pieces of happy moments, the unlikely bond developed between the man and the dog. The whole story has a feel-good end that made me leapt with joy that I couldn't contain. Good read.
The way she had the dogs pov and Adam's pov in their own voice.
None that I remember...
Absolutely...YES! I couldn't walk away.
I loved this book and I would recommend it to anyone...and I have.
As a dog lover it is right up there with the best but it is a predictable story though well read.
none come to mind
The dog because I would know what he likes
I enjoyed this book mostly because of the two readers; one voice for the man, one voice foir the dog.
The story was engaging and easy to follow. Transitions between characters was not annoying.
love to read, read a lot, mostly mysteries, historic fiction and a bit of sci-fi
This is a story that could be saccharine in someone else's hands, but Susan Wilson's characterizations really bring the story to life. She has a sharp eye for detail and her main characters are quite believable. Narrator Fred Berman is impressive! I enjoyed the listen a lot and actually have purchased the written version of the book for family members who aren't yet audiophiles.
The Narrator did such a good job with the voice of the Dog vs. the Man. It wasn't cheesy, but you knew who was talking just by the voice change.
I loved how the lives of the two intertwined
I read listen while I'm driving my 45 minute commute to work and some days I couldn't wait to get on the road.
I was not disappointed in the least by this story--excellent story without all the graphic detail that could have been included. I'm very grateful it wasn't because it wasn't needed and would have taken away from the message of the story.
I love Sophie Kinsella and I want something a bit lighter so I'm going with one of her books!
Nothing could have been improved upon.
Can't think of one.
The reading was excellent and the story parallels very believable without being too sentimental
Loved the dog!

A most enjoyable read and I especially loved it on Audible - would not have had the same impact as a conventionally "read" book
I love to read and to listen to audible books. I listen to them while I cook and clean. I love to bake and it's so enjoyable for me!
I have never read the print version, however, this audio version is a suspenseful and enticing narative. I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story and mystery!
