Very enjoyable way to review the faded memories from high school history class.
If history were presented this way back in my school days, I wouldn't have dozed off so much!
Held my interest with facts mixed with humor and a good writing style making for easy listening.
my daughter loves the Andrew Clements books.
after downloading and listening to Frindle (still her favorite), she is going through each of his books on audio now as we either drive together or listens to a chapter or two right before bedtime
If you watch and enjoy TV's Deadliest Catch, this is a good choice to help you delve a bit more into the details of this crazy line of work.
Hearing the costs and expenses involved in stocking and maintaining the boat in relation to the dollars made from a successful catch is an interesting part of the story.
Made me greatly appreciate the fact that there are guys out there crazy enough to do this job so we can enjoy the crab leg special at Red Lobster.
Having lived in Okinawa for a few years, and having brought an Akita back with me and developing an appreciation for the breed, I purchased this book with the anticipation that I would learn more and enjoy the tale.
Wrong! has to be one of the most boring audiobooks I've ever suffered through!
My 9 yr old daughter said I should just turn it on, leave it sitting alone by itself in a room and come back when it was over. Good advice which I probably should have listened to but unfortunately was too stubborn to follow.
The Dog Man comes across as a cranky old antisocial guy and I'm amazed that his wife could choose to stay with him for all those years in spite of the way he treated her.
He should thank the lord for her tolerance and stoicism since otherwise all he would have had were his dogs for company.
I definitely would say that your audiobook credits and dollars would be better spent elsewhere than here.
I had to rate it one star only because I couldn't figure out how to erase the star once I clicked on it.
Was nice to hear the book version after having seen the Steve Martin movie version.
When you put the two together the story is more interesting with more depth and a deeper perspective that doesn't come across as well in the movie version.
Watch the film, read (or hear) the book for a full experience of what I think the author intends.
