I never write reviews, but generally read a few if i don't know the author. I loved this book! I have birds and could totally relate to the authors view of Wesley. I started listening to it yesterday afternoon and couldn't stop. If you don't love birds it might not be for you, but if u love animals and connect with them,this book is charming and insighful. I would recommend this book to people that love animals or have school aged children. it is a wonderful story.
Surprising and informative in its revelation of the abilities of a barn owl, charming in the experience of an intimate relationship, "Wesley the Owl" is delightfully read. I'm still musing over many memorable events of a shared life.
I have a 24-year relationship with my parrot who also thinks of me as my mate.
I just re-read the book for the 2nd time.
This story made me laugh, made me cry. The story is well told, well written. I came to love Stacey &Wesley. I miss them already. Narration is GREAT & I usually do not like female narrators as they mimic male voices.
Story is A+++
It is "The Way of The Owl. "
This books reader has a nice voice to listen to. The book is a nice read that takes you into the life of raising an owl and the relationship that was formed in the heartfelt story. Would recommend for any owl/animal lover.
A wonderful story for anyone who has ever been close to any bird of prey or raptor. Gave me great insight into the fascinating behavior of owls and my love, falcons. If you have ever been so fortunate as to experience the trust or companionship of any these amazing creatures, you will truly relate to and be moved by the story of Wesley.
I feel so fortunate that Stacy O'Brien shared her story of Wesley the Owl. I smiled, I laughed and cried a little bit in this heart warming tale of love. Love is all we really need to thrive. Excellent read.
I learned so much reading this story- it's sincere, informative and heartfelt. The author is a highly educated woman who adopted an abandoned owlet before his eyes were even open. She structured her life around keeping him safe and cared for. It is a remarkable tale that will stay with you for a long time.
I listened to, and loved "Marley and Me."
I have to admit that I did not listen to the second half of "Wesley the Owl". I had to stop because I found this book very infantile. Perhaps part of the blame belongs to the narrator, who has a very sing-songy diction, suitable for children. I quickly started thinking that the author is more than a little kooky and that she way over-anthropomorphized Wesley.
