If you don't absolutely LOVE dogs this book is not for you. I don't and it wasn't. I tried until the dogs thoughts about the smell of the man's rectum and crotch being like the colors of the rainbow .... Say what? Dogs are dogs. I like 'em well enough but they do not need special bags to be carried in, sweaters, air conditioned dog houses, chemotherapy or cemeteries in my opinion. They are dogs. Not people. Not babies not FREAKIN' HUMAN for goodness sake. They are DOGS and I do not intend to listen to how one supposedly thinks for a few minutes certainly not for a few HOURS in an audiobook. You people are crazy! It's a story about a man and a dog. Babies, real babies are in the world who need this kind of love showered on them. Real people are starving dying being mistreated in this world, look out for all of them the way you do dogs and this book wouldn't even be written. What a waste of time.
the narrator really brought the dog's perspective to life and even opened my mind up to my own dogs
I wasn't sure if the dog aspect of this story would make it too touchy-feely, but I really enjoyed it, as well as the narrator's reading of the few chapters that were from the dog Maggie's point of view. The story and narration hooked me from the start and I was really feeling sorry for the main character and dog whenever it looked like the past was going to repeat itself.
What a great book especially if you love dogs. Not only is it a fabulous and touching story but I learned so much about how dogs react to their owners, commands and their pack. This is all enter woven into a suspenseful storyline that will make you listen straight through the audio book. This is my second time listening to the book and I enjoyed it even more then the first time.
