The title " A Dog's Purpose" is perfect I would not say anything else.
All of them.
Have a tissue close by there are parts that are hard to hear. But great ending.
I think it's kind of a sad story about a dog's trials and tribulation to find his purpose throughout several lifetimes.
No, I haven't listened to any other performances but I thought he did very well.
The dog because the story is about him and his people.
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
Oh Yes! Even if you're not a "dog person" this is a great story. Its touching without being a tear- jerker.
So many, too many to choose. I guess when dog and boy(now man were reunited). Throughout the story the dog never forgets the boy and works tirelessly to return to him.
One of the more touching ones was the fire, and the boy' s near death experience.
LIke I said. So many. As the dog was re-encarnated many times. And each time he touches someone profoundly. The whole idea of that overall just moved me.
One to listen to over and over
Weepy, uplifting and satisfying
As a long time dog owner (7 of them) it is interesting to see another insight into what is going on in those noodles
Re-incarnation is a belief of many lives in our world. The author pulls this together and leaves us wondering about other future selves and interaction of beings smart and not so..
The narrator's pacing and inflection fit each "new" dog and would not let me go.
Cameron and Wilson hooked me in to another one.
The narrator was truly wonderful.
I honestly didn't have a favorite character -- I enjoyed every single one of them.
I love listening to books from geat narrators, it is like being told a story that you never want to end.
Every moment moved me -- I didn't want it to end.
I very much enjoyed the book. The performance was perfect. A dog's first person perspective made the book very interesting. This book made me think of my dog and the dogs of my past in a good way.
I typically only write reviews over books that I personally find to be horrible.(My way of helping other listeners from wasting a credit who think the same way as I do) I have a library FULL of books that I dont like! I purchased this book not with credits but additional money when Audible offered this book on sale. The money I applied to this book was the best purchase I have made in quite awhile! This book goes into my "Fave" pile!! From the start I was engulfed into the characters. I laughed and cried from start to finish! I have always had dogs and currently have 3 Golden Retrievers. I found myself looking at each of them through out the story and imagining "that is EXACTLY what Luci would say" etc! I thought of my childhood and that "unconditional friend" your dog always is. It made me smile at the memories of my dogs whom have passed away a long time ago. As I said in the title.. A MUST for anyone who loves dogs! In my opinion it is suitable not only for adults but for teenagers also. Hope you love it as much as I did!
Disclaimer: I am a total sucker for dogs and stories about them. I can maintain my composure in a movie when a person dies, but never when a dog does. Unless you share this mindset, this book may not be for you. But if you love dogs, you'll love this story. I highly recommend the narrator, George K. Wilson, who somehow sounds exactly as a dog should. The book got me 1) even more tuned in than before to my dog's point of view and 2) panting (ok, bad pun) to read the second book in the series, A Dog's Journey. I will admit that the story is a little bit Disney-esque, in that almost everything turns out fairly well, and some people are a bit too good to be true, but hey, I like my dog books happy. Enjoy, fellow dog fans
