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!
Yes it is a good solid story. Not my favorite Harry Bosch story but still entertaining.
The developing relationship between Harry and his new partner.
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.
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.
