    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    "unusual, very entertaining"
    Overall

    listened to this book on a recent trip with 3 ladies in the car, usually wouldn't be able to get a word in edge ways but this time silence they were so absorbed in the story and all burst into tears at the end - even i had a frog in my throat ! recommended!!

    South London in the 1930s - Mrs Hilda Jones is fed up with her dull husband. She thought marriage would liven him up, but after 25 years, he's just as boring as the day she married him. Now she wants to lead her own life. Her newly married daughter, Olive, is shocked, but Hilda is adamant.

    The Appeal is a powerful, timely, and shocking story of political and legal intrigue, a story that will leave listeners unable to think about the electoral process or judicial system in quite the same way again.

    Michael says: "The Appeal is lost"
    "good but not his best"
    Overall

    engrossing and enjoyable with an unexpected twist at the end - not JG's best but worth a listen

    Overall

    my wife and i listened to this book on a recent 36 hour drive to the coast and back, we found it boring, repetitive, contrived and very disappointing.
