Laughter, tears, smiles and sighs occur during your listen to this continuation of what all pet lovers hope is true...the objects of our slavish devotion will return to us later in life, perhaps in a different breed, but their acceptance, their love of us continues through time until we join them on the other side of the rainbow bridge.
Loved that this continued the live of the dog from the first book
Read the book a dogs purpose first both are great
If you are a dog lover this is a great story. Even if you are not crazy about dogs, it addresses how we move along the spiritual continuum.
He has such an earnest voice for the dogs. It was amazing.
Cried at the sad points but laughed at the whimsical reflections of the dog.
I did not read the print version.
I loved part 1, A Dog's Purpose but A Dog's Journey was even better.
I loved all of it. There were moments that were very sad but you knew it wasn't over yet.
The narrator was awesome. He has a warm fuzzy voice that is perfect for a warm fuzzy animal.
Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.
Well written, well read, and so sweet. This is a great completion to "A Dog's Purpose", and definitely recommend that you read them in order. You need go no deeper than the written story, but I have taken away so much more.
I have found myself listening to other books where animals are mentioned in passing - historical accounts - and found myself wondering what those dogs were thinking. Mr. Cameron should write one about the dogs of Winston Churchill, Napoleon, Hitler and Obama. I don't care about the politics involved, I would love to see how one of these dogs would see the world and it's events of the time. And who but his dog could tell us the better side of Adolf Hitler?
Any book that makes you think about the contents long after you are done reading it - is one that should be shared.
I already have because dog lovers can really appreciate the personality and life long commitment of man's best friend
Toby, Max, Molly; all the same dog.
He did a good job with most of the character voices; some voices got a bit odd but overall, it was so easy to listen to.
Toby at the end
The performance and story really felt like seeing things from a dog's point of view. Great read
Avid Audio Book listener. Usual suspects are Leadership, Business, Philosophy, Biographies, and Random Fiction. But once every couple of months I choose a book I might not have picked...ever...but with good reviews.
"A Dog's Journey", the squeal to "A Dog's Purpose", is a similar journey with a more direct story line yet lacks some of the charm the previous book had. If you loved this first book, you will enjoy the second.
"A Dog's Journey" is a more linear, straight forward telling of why a puppy may exist in a human's life. The story is similar to last part of the first book and to really enjoy this book, it would be advised to read "A Dog's Purpose" first for the full back story but not required. While the first one reads to be more about the dog's lives, this is more about who the dog loves and the dog taking care of the ones s/he loves.
The story is well written and a bit heart breaking at times. It takes interesting angles with the dogs life travels but, unlike the first book, seems to be more driven by the main human female lead and her best friend then the dog itself. The human female is the center and glue of the book but you find her "messing up" the dog's story to the point of annoyance at times. Yet her story is true to life and shows when the human's life is in chaos, so is the dogs.
You will find several good love and life stories throughout this tale. While on the dog's journey, s/he constantly shows the different types of humans in this world and how things might or might not be as random as they may seem. The over arching love story of dog/human and human/human though will leave an overall positive feeling in the end.
This is a solid read and will be most enjoyable to people who have read the prequel. Would recommend it as a good weekend read.
Im a 39 year old self employed female who does a lot of driving and audiobooks make driving enjoyable for me. I enjoy conteporary and historical fiction as well as fun comedic romances.
This book ranks among the top 20 books I have listened to, it is the second in the series.
What I liked best about this is that the whole family enjoyed listening to it from my youngest kids to my mom and there it was a good clean listen that kept you waiting for the next chapter and had a great ending.
The litte dog Max was the most memorable charcter, his quirks and fears and eccentricities so true to life.
Great family listen. would buy a third book in the series if there was one.
Excellent narration of a novel written especially for dog lovers. I found myself interacting with my dogs at a new level after I finished this book. I laughed, cried, and everything in between. I seriously couldn't stop listening!
I loved the end. It was perfect.
His inflection really makes his voice take on each character throughout the story.
There is nothing better than a good book!
I purchased this after I read the the book. And.....I enjoyed it so much more! It is the kind of story that stirs up every emotion we have inside- joy, anger, sadness, excitement, humor, contentment, etc.... It is full of witty dialogue, heart-wrenching decisions, and life lessons....given to us honestly and simply by man's best friend, a dog.
This is a must-have for my fellow dog lovers who believe that life isn't complete without a faithful canine by your side!
