Absolutely better due to the narration.
A dog's journey through life and after!
This was a delightful book that makes one think about all dogs in his/her life.
I was laughing one minute and crying out loud, the next.
I can now talk to and understand my dog.
I had several extreme reactions, like having to stop the car, I was crying so hard. The laughter would come from many of the one liners, mother put the lid on the drinking bowl.
Anyone who has ever had a relationship with a dog will love this book.
I really LOVED a Dog's Purpose. I thought the first half of this book was really slow, not as surprising and entertaining as a Dog's Purpose. It got better towards the end though.
Yes, it is a reminder of the love I had for all my dogs growing up.
Very captivating voice.
Good book to a follow up of A Dogs Purpose.
A voracious reader, especially for a dog. Of course, terriers are superior. Not bragging. Just true.
More peaks to go with the valleys. This story was pretty much an unrelenting series of bad things happening to the main character, CJ. Plus, I began to find CJ unsympathetic because many of her woes were based on her own stupid choices. Kind of like watching a horror movie, where the victim goes down to the scary dark basement alone - when she should know the slasher is down there - and doesn't even bother to turn on a light.
Also, the characters could have used more shading. Everyone was either Good or Bad.
The premise of the dog's reincarnations was very promising, but it was just so poorly executed.
Over-the-top cartoon voices for the "villains."
Eye-rolling at the maudlin aspects and growing irritation, including at myself for finishing it instead of bailing. I only stuck with the whole thing because kept thinking (wrongly) that there would be a satisfying pay-off in the end.
Generally love a book told from a dog's POV, but this one just didn't work for me.
Definately yes! This is a follow-up to A Dog's Purpose. The writer has created an excellent story line that is interwoven in both books. If one doesn't have tears in one's eyes- it would be hard to comprehend.
Excellent. His inflection from the dog's point of view is great.
How about tears?
I would hope for a sequel, but I cannot see it. Perhaps the author has something in mind.
nuts about books
This book is right at the top of my list...I first purchased "A Dog's Purpose" from Audible without having high expectations and it sat on my Kindle for weeks before I gave it a listen. I was so surprised at how good it was, so when the sequel came out, I added it right away and it was just as good as the first.
The ending...I won't give it away here, and I realize it's just the author's imagination, but I really like to think this is how it really goes!
My favorite scene was when the dog was reunitied with his "girl" years and years after the car accident.
Again, the ending was so moving. I know it was sappy and all, but it made me think of all the dogs I've had over the years and how awesome it would be to see them all again.
If you are a dog lover, you MUST read these two books. Be prepared for a few tears, but for the most part, it is just a good, simple book about the best pets in the world, our dogs.
This book and its predecessor were two of the very best books I've read. There are so many lessons about what it means to love selflessly and to care for others. There are tears, laughter and love throughout. The narration is a perfect complement to the writing. I cannot recommend these books highly enough.
Enjoyable! Thought A Dog's Life was wonderful.....didn't think a second book could top it but A Dog's Journey was even better. Enjoy!
Between A Dog's Journey and A Dog's Purpose there are no better audiobooks!
How the dogs have love for their humans.
The narration makes makes this story!
