I would not have had the patience to read this book with my eyes. I used it as a companion for pulling weeds and I must report that the garden and I are both the better for it. It was a very good listen. I'll not forget these characters anytime soon.
Well, of course, this is a wonderful story about Snowman the eighty dollar champion horse and his amazing owner/partner Harry de Leyer. Great story--but not well told. The book was terribly repetitive--so much so--that I finally gave up listening. I do thank the author for introducing me to Snowman and Harry.
A book I am still thinking about a week after finishing--is certainly worth 5-stars in my rating system. This book has a brainy plot that slowly and methodically reveals the depth of "devotion."
For a long time I judged this book unfairly by it's peculiar title. Oh, I am so glad I finally sidestepped the title and just jumped in for a listen. As the quirky characters are peeled back and the story unfolds, I am reminded that people are just people--and I would want these for my friends too.
Mr. Brick nailed the character Shep's voice. This was a suspenseful novel, yet I found myself with a tiny grin every time Shep spoke--because he was just so well done.
