    Ted Kerasote met and adopted Merle, a Labrador mix, while he was on a camping trip. Merle had been living in the wild, and after taking the dog home with him to Wyoming, Kerasote soon realized that Merle could not adjust to inhabiting exclusively the human world. So he put a door in his house to let Merle live both outside and in. A deeply touching portrait of a remarkable animal, Merle's Door explores the issues that all animals and their human companions face.

    John says: "The Best Audio Book I've ever listened to"
    "Merle's Door"
    Overall

    I have been a member of Audible for at least 3 years and have downloaded on average 3 books a month. Although I normally love a good mystery, I was drawn to this book because of its subject matter, a dog named Merle. My husband and I are owned by two labs; so I related to the author and his relationship with this special animal. The book was by far the best on I have listened too. The fact that it was read by the author lent that much more interest and emotion to the read. I laughed a lot and toward the end cried a lot too. I cannot recommend his book enough to any reader who is owned or has been owned by a dog.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Would you listen to The Black Box again? Why?

    Yes it is a good solid story. Not my favorite Harry Bosch story but still entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The developing relationship between Harry and his new partner.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The escape.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of the reviews have focused on the new narrator and they almost stopped me from buying the book until I read a review indicating that the fix was as simple as changing the speed setting on your ipod. That worked and although the narrator isn't as good as Lou, he is adequate.

  • Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero

    Story

    On the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one knew what had just happened at 8:46 a.m. that morning, September 11, 2001. Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team....

    "Fabulous Book"
    Overall

    This is my first "audible" book review. Thunder Dog is so good that I felt compelled to write about it and tell others. I initially ordered it because of the "handsome" labrador on the cover. Having two labs of my own I am drawn to books about dogs. But this book is so much more. It is a book about faith, about teamwork, about life in general. It is educational. If an audible book can be a page turner, it is that too. There were times I sat in my car longer then I had too because I didn't want to stop listening. The extras at the end of the book, a speech by the President of the Federation of the Blind, a speech by the author and an interview of the author were bonuses. Don't hesitate to purchase this book!
