    Animal lovers and sports fans were shocked when the story broke about NFL player Michael Vick’s brutal dogfighting operation. But what became of the dozens of dogs who survived? As acclaimed writer Jim Gorant discovered, their story is the truly newsworthy aspect of this case.

    Overall

    While the story itself is an important one, the book was a frustration to listen to. It was an act of patience to tease out the facts from all the sentimental anthropomorphizing. We DO NOT 'know' what the dogs were thinking, wishing, remembering; we can only use our intelligence and compassion to develop a useful understanding of their behaviors and needs. Another source of irritation was the narrator, who articulated the text as though he were recording it for a class of foreign language students just learning English. These complaints aside, I did listen to the end, because, again, this is an important and mostly inspiring story.
