This ranks hig in my dog library. Soldier Dogs are the unsung heros.
Each story had a connection to real-life for a soldier. There's a redeeming factor of soldier dogs with their handlers. The bond comes through nice and clear
The Narrator voice was a little flat, but it grows on you. In fact, the reporter-type perspective is what AMERICA needs more of. But it was a little flat, but not distracting.
This was PERFECT to listen to in snippets. If you are busy, you can put it down, but the moment you need to pick it up again, you HAVE to pick it back up again!
Stories that stuck out is the WWI stuffed dog, the recuperating soldiers and dogs reuniting in another way. Sad we have to purchase overseas. We are a bite-phobic society.
Both main characters stayed in the limelight, however the wife was the mainstay.
You lived through her eyes and even felt hungry she she was hungry.
Suzanne I would have to say...
Sultry voice had a texture of "memory"
She had compassion for others, determination, watched other characters respond and still kept the story alive.
Apart from slightly graphic scenes (less is more) I adore this story and would recommend.
I am unsure. The content was flat, save the graphic scenes.
Characters were detached, sexual content took away from the plot. Was this a pursuit to find mom, or just a story of surviving communism?
Growing up with auntie.
Central theme was surviving communism? Exploitation of women? Left feeling lost in a sad story
Fascinating plot and loved the movie. The f-bombs were distracting. So was the discovery the 'joy of' book. It had no context to anything in the book and threw off the readers.
The plot was absolutely fantastic! Negative thinking made it believable that the experience was rough getting through the process... It kept my attention until the end but twice I wanted to just turn it off and walk away.
Otherwise an absolutely fantastic plot!
maybe. F-bombs and sex book references involved? No. Way over the top.
joy of sex scene... 9-11 era reference: stereotyping 'republicans'.
Crab experience was awesome. Sub-plot of having a baby kept with the plot (didn't detract) I know what a 'gimlet' is now, however you spell it . Co-worker sub plots were hilarous.
Being upset with the system is ok. It was repeated too much; the book lost steam from over-repeating how upset the author is with his situation
Veteran experience and his initial transition into life.
yes, pace was excellent. It stalled a little, tracking with all the people he met.
I loved the story and how Tuesday & the author worked things out. It sounded a little too political; I got lost a few times, but absolutely pales in comparison to the whole story.
This by far, outweighs any whispering book. This story has grip, is simple and straightforward with the writing. The Narration is top notch & did not stray and fit quite well to the story. I am extremely impressed by the voice narration + the content. I learned a lot about scent training, what goes on for SAR and how it affects folks. Not too drippy, but portrays a human side of the facts of life. well done, Susannah (no, I don't know her)
Distinct book as far as dog books go.
Susannah's Calm voice that has a reflection to it, but was soft enough to read through the book with clarity.
absolutely yes. I could sit through the book.
The end of Columbia story and the beginning of her diagnosis was slightly foggy, but we caught on after a few minutes
Audio book narrated beautifully.
You will bond with one or more charachters people in the book.
If your kid reads this book, he will most likely read the second and third; know they will have real-world stuff in here, down to imagry reflecting ethnic cleansing.
Very unique book. Back-end politics like Star Wars , teen romance and WWII Europe history. Strange mix.
The bread scene stuck in my head. Sienna's quiet responses.
When I got through with the first two books.... I still think Dad didn't get killed in the mine! I was expecting him to pop up and say,
