Ayatollah of Rock n Rollah
I really enjoyed listening to this book on a few trips I had to make to Oklahoma City for radiation treatments. Despite what I was going through this book helped to take my mind off of it. I laughed, I cried - went through the range of emotions. I absolutely loved it.
Bruce Cameron does an amazing job of imagining what goes on in a dog's head. It has changed the way I interact with my fur baby - "What would Bailey like in this situation."
I've wondered if some of my dogs have been through life a time or two. They come to you with a "been there, done that" style and are smart as whips. The author does an amazing job of capturing that thought and fleshing it out.
Keep tissues at hand.
Say something about yourself!
I was completely wrapped up in this story! I couldn't stop listening! While there were certainly touching moments I was never complete heart broken or sobbing at the story (which is a good thing!) because it is more "touching" than "sad" and so very good. If you are a dog person (and even if you aren't...) to glimpse this animals devotion even just for a few pages is an amazing thing. I highly recommend this.
If you are a dog lover, you MUST read this book. You will laugh, cry, smile, nod knowingly, and shake your head in anticipation of the dog's actions. Excellent story. One I'll never forget.
Just confirmed what I believed about my "little shadow". I believe! I believe! Listen to this audio book; you won't be sorry. George Wilson's voice only helped to enhance this story. Can't wait to read Cameron's next book!
The story seemed to "drag" a bit at first but I kept listening because it was a "dog story" and soon I couldn't shut it off! and when I finished I listened to the whole story again!! Mr.Cameron has a gift of incredible insight into the Dogs thinking. I do believe he has the whole "system" figured out! It has certainly helped answer some of my questions why some dogs seem to have "old souls", they just seem to "know" things. It is a shame we humans don't appreciate them more! I also wonder now about the horses purpose......
The most memorable moment was when the pup found his boy again.
The dog - in all his reincarnations - was my favorite character.
I hope that dogs are reincarnated, since I have had the privilege of knowing two very special ones. It is pleasant to think that they may be bringing joy into the lives of others.
I really enjoyed this book. I'm a dog lover, and my expectations were high for a novel from a dog's perspective. The narrator is, incredibly, credible as a dog once you get a bit into the book. The story is varied and interesting.
What a wonderful story. I chose this book because of the title and am so glad that I did. I laughed, cried, smiled and sighed. As I listened, I thought back to every look my dogs ever gave me. Thank you for that.
I absolutely loved this book. I read it, then bought the audible and listened to it. I have bought 3 copies to give to other people. When I just want something pleasant to read for a while, when I am out or between other books, I listen to parts of this again. Of course I liked the audio best because of the excellent emotional portrayal by the reader.
