Being a widow myself at a young age I was very surprised at the many similarities Rocky and I shared after the death of our husbands. Either the author has suffered the loss of a spouse or did some very good research with other widows. It was very uncanny to listen to experiences that I thought only I endured after the loss of my husband. Very insightful.
I would wait until it came out on DVD
While the storyline and performance was "OK" I couldn't help from liking this book and hoping that Rocky would cross that bridge of grief and begin new adventures. What better way than with the love of a dog. I know, I now have three wonderful four legged companions!
Probably not. I usually do not listen to books twice. This book was good but not a page turner.
The realization that what we remember is not always the truth.
I don't know if I have or not. I do not play close attention to the performers names but after this book I will because he was so good.
"A Lonely Man"
I really enjoyed that this book was based on a true character in history. Made me curious enough to Google Willie Sutton.
The top ten.
I cried quite a few times and also laughed at the insight this dog had about his humans.
Good thing I was "listening" and not reading this one. I could not of seen the print through the tears. When Bailey took his last trip to the vet I had to turn my IPOD off because I knew what was coming and knew that I was going to relive my recent experience to help my precious German Shepard "Nine" move on to his next life. Through the tears I turned the story back on and so glad I did. Although sad, Bailey's transition gave me insight to "A Dogs Purpose" and am so glad I made that decision for my dear friend. I look at my sweet little Yorkies now in a whole different way and am always wondering what they are thinking of my moods, commands and actions. We have become even better friends now that I have read this book.
Yes, I like his writing.
I am still thinking about this one. so many unanswered questions, but then again maybe no further explanation is needed.
Having different performers read the parts kept you on track with the story line. They were wonderful story tellers!!!
