Having read "Until Tuesday" the paper version a couple of times I was pressed for time and more then that I did not have the energy to read any book. Let alone my favorite book. So I choose Audible and picked the Unabridged Version of "Until Tuesday" as I think this is the only version avaliable on Audilble. Immediately I was taken into the story of this disabled warrior and his loved golden retriever in ways that were new and deeply textured. I experienced such a profound connection to the life of Former Captain Montalvan and his Service Dog Tuesday it was almost as if I had never read the book. When in fact I had studied my orginal copy of "Until Tuesday" with its tattered cover, yellow bleed through the pages highlighter and different color ink pens with notes where I was struck by his experience both in Iraq and back home with Tuesday. New parts of the book emerged for me with Montalvan's voice as in what I would refer to as part of the prelude of the book entitled "Split in Half" or at the end where this Unabridged Version has a special so long so as a spoiler alert I won't give that away. Montalvan's reading of his experience adds so much depth to the story as I wept in many places, laughed whole heartedly in others, and pondered many thoughts along with him as he read such as war, disability, and most importantly love between souls. Now I find myself listening every chance I get to glean what I might from such a warm story.
Having a Golden Retriever that looks just like Tuesday and has the same goofy personality...i found this book to be so close to my heart. These dogs are meant to be service dogs and they change the lives of all they encounter. Luis and Tuesday were destined to be together and they have helped each other heal. I am heart sick that there is still such blatant discrimination against disabled veterans and their life saving service dogs. This is a story that needs to be told and we all need to rally around our wounded warriors who have given so much for all of us.A deeply moving, emotional and inspiring story about about a hero soldier and his loving and devoted service dog.
Loved it, it has brought awareness to what our veterans go through. I'd like to have a word or two with the bus driver. I would have had her fired or go through a class for showing empathy.
Carlos is pretty much the only character besides Tuesday
Yes he had good voice inflection
This was a great book but the audio constantly changed.
A great book telling the story of a mentally and physically wounded vet and how a dog's love
can help heal those wounds. Animal lovers will appreciate!
Yes. It is well-written and compelling. You will be moved by this book.
Wow. My wife isn't huge into audiobooks (I am), but she absolutely loved this book. We both did. This is an easy non-fiction book that is inspirational and thought-provoking while being also highly entertaining. Excellent read, and easy to recommend.
