    "I loved the story of Wesley the Owl"

    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.

    "Charming and informative"

    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.

    Story
    "4 the love of bitds"

    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. "

    "Very good listen!"

    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.

    "Wesley the Owl like no other book"

    Wesley the Owl held a treasure trove of animal information and heart. Stacey O'Brien painted word pictures that made you fall in love with Wesley. I highly recommend it!

    "Wonderful read!"

    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 LOVE this book!"

    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.

    "Maybe good for children"

    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.
