He learned to love his dog more than alcohol.
When he found out how important his dog was
He made alcoholic Martin believable.
Some laughs. Martin.Kihn is very funny.
I think he wants readers not to overlook their dogs' feelings..
Yes if you liked The Art of Racing In the Rain this book is somewhat on the same level. I passed it up because of reviews but finally listened and was glad I did.
When the husband goes to Paris and finds something very unusual and his point of view begins to change. Cindy was a turning point.
Probably as the "wife" narrating the story and of course Cindy and can't forget Arthur.
How Cindy finally ended and when Skippy let everyone know it was time for him to leave.
This author has a unique understanding of nonhuman life.
Humans tend to be arrogant about their supposed superiority but this book shows how wrong this is. Animals other than humans are not dim robotic shadows of humans but worlds unto themselves.
There isn't a character. The authors are describing the mental lives that other species live.
I don't think so but he did very well.
Yes and I did.
If you think "man shall govern the beasts" or whatever the Bible says Wrong. The BibLe written by humans. Don't think anyone witnessed GOD guiding someone. Other species on this planet are just as important and entitled to their lives.
Historically slanted towards the writer's views
I think he writes things that in ways might be accurate historically but he slants them toward his own viewpoint.
I do not care for his narration but his pronunciation of foreign words and places seems accurate
No. This book is much too pedestrian.
I wouldn't recommend it. There are better books on the subject.
Yes. This book takes you to Mt Everest
The narrator is Jon Krakauer and this is his story of the tragedy of the climbers killed in one particular climb
He did an excellent job. Who knows this story better.
The end of the book has the best insights into the whole terrible tragedy
I first saw the story in OutSide magazine and thought I would read it sometime but never did. Glad I waited for the audio version.
Audio is much better. The emotion is there when there's a narratorTh
The ending is unforgettable
Enzo the dog who touched me so much that I now have an ENZO shirtEnz
Enzo's dad and of course Enzo. They are commited.
Passed this book up a long time because of the auto racing theme. Was I wrong!
