First things first... this book is hard to listen to. The narrator is fine, I enjoyed the way she read it. But just the recording itself sounds bad, like low bit-rate. I tried downloading a higher quality version, no improvement. Its tiresome on the ears and actually can be hard to understand. Its the worst I've found on audible so far.
Now for the story: It really is a good book, I'd give the book itself a solid 4 stars. Its short, its surprising, its powerful, but leaves you wanting more.
I wont dive into detail because other reviews do that just fine. Its a well written book with an interesting little story. One of the more memorable in the genre, even though it was very short, and the audio quality was poor.
Get this book the recording it deserves!
I started out skeptical, because the premise and layout really isn't my cup of tea, a self-aware dog learning life's lessons through the lens of his owners racecar driving career (ive never cared about the sport)
But I finished the book in two sittings on a long road trip, and ive gotta say, it was one of my favorites. I really loved it... Give it a shot, especially if you like dogs, and even if you don't care about car racing.
Listened to this book in about two sittings on both legs of a long road trip, and i must say, we couldn't "put it down" we were listening to it for ten minute drives to the grocery store, and whenever we had a chance... Cant wait to see if the next ones in the series are this good.
