Wow. This was an incredible story of courage, optimism and grit. Easy to listen to the narrator's voice & the story line keeps you on the edge of your seat! Recommend!
This book begins with a disclaimer: no dog dies in this book. That's true, but it was still a tear jerker in places. Excellent story, a must read for all dog lovers.
This was truly a great book. The first hour or 2 I was skeptical, but I am glad I kept at it. Well narrated, I enjoyed the 2 points of view. The twists in the plot were unexpected & kept it interesting. Recommended!
I admit, I struggled with this one for a bit. I didn't like listening to 2 different narrators. I didn't like the writing, it seemed awfully simplistic. I didn't even like either of the main characters. But I stuck it out, and I am glad I did. It becomes clear that the simplistic writing style serves a purpose, and it really HAS to be told by 2 different narrators; and while I still can't say I like either character, I loved the story they had to tell. The plot twists and turns, and at the end I was left almost breathless. Great suspenseful story!
I have listened to all of this series, and this was one of the better books. The story remains interesting, and this particular book has more interaction with other peoples.
I didn't read the print version, so I can't really say for sure, but the narrator's performance was unbelievably good. His ability to use different accents and ways of speaking certainly made it more entertaining than if I had to do it myself in my head.
The character development & how the fictional story ties in effortlessly with history. I felt like I really got to know the characters on a personal level, even though some of them I didn't really like.
He is incredible! He puts so much inflection and emotion in his performances. He isn't just reading the book, he is telling you a story.
For me, it was Ethel. She came from nothing, and made a life for herself.
Ken Follett rocks!
This was fantastic! As a dog lover, I immediately connected with Enzo and his humans through their struggles. Loved the perspective! A must listen!
I read this trilogy years ago, and loved it. I am loving it all over again. For me, this second book is wonderful because Ayla is such a strong spirit and her connection with animals intrigues me. It is also nice to have more humans for her to interact with. Can't wait for the next one!
I loved this! The story was catching from the beginning, and the twist in the middle caught me totally off guard. I love the main character, & found myself reacting emotionally to some of the other characters as well. Great, easy read!
I read this trilogy many years ago. I have now listened to the first 3 books in the series. This one was my least favorite. Some of the information that you learned in the first 2 books gets repeated often in this book, as if trying to lure in people who haven't read the series from the beginning. It's annoying to those of us who have read from the beginning. The other thing I was disappointed in is that this book reads more like a romance novel as opposed to historical fiction like the other two. I found myself frustrated with Ayla and Jondalar for not communicating & it seems like the author has made Ayla more of a delicate flower than the strong independent woman she was described as initially. Still, I will continue the series, it is a good story overall.
