    Story
    "Outstanding!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Dog's Journey to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narrator brings a certain something to the book that cannot be fulfilled by just reading, When I listened to the book I felt as if someone was sitting in my house telling me a story that was part of their life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    With out a doubt it was all the different dogs, or should I say the same dog in different lives. My wife and I are real animal lovers but really have a special place in our hearts for dogs.


    What does George K. Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As I said before a narrator brings things to the story you could never have if you just read the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The movie tag line of "You'll Laugh, you'll cry, but you'll leave with a new spring in your step and love in your heart" Corny but true.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to Mr. Cameron's first book and afterwards sent him email asking when the next book would come out, the same goes now when is the next one to be published, we look forward to that day.

    "A Dogs Journey"
    What did you love best about A Dog's Journey?

    Told from the dogs point of view.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The dog of course


    What does George K. Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    He has an amazing way of changing his voice tone for different characters. I loved how he made Gloria sound as whiny in her speech as she was in her character


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both.


    Any additional comments?

    An amazing book, I had to listen to it twice. It truly makes you look at your dogs differently.

    Story
    "A Darker, Sadder Sequel"

    I adored A Dog's Purpose, both the plot and the performance by George K. Wilson. The sequel left me with some heart-warming moments, but overall sadder upon completion. The lead human character was more tragic, and the supporting characters were either far more heroic or far more despicable than any in A Dog's Purpose. Gloria was easy to hate, and Trent spent time between scenes having his halo polished and his wings adjusted. I won't be giving the hardcover of the sequel as gifts as I did with A Dog's Purpose. Not a bad book to be sure, but a different mood from the first volume.

    "Sigh, a loving tribute from Man's best friend..."

    This put a lump in my throat and a smile on my face many times through the reading. I has made me look at my dog and cat in a whole new light. What is there purpose and what is my role in helping them fulfill it. If you love your pets and feel a strong connection to your dog..this is a must read. Especially if you have loved and lost a pet, your heart will sing to have a unique perspective. A lovely follow up to a Dog's Purpose by the same author. The narrator is terrific as well. A+++

    Story
    "Hard to follow A Dog's Purpose"

    I'm sure the reason I didn't find this book as enchanting as A Dog's Purpose is because that book was truly a one-of-a-kind. The story of Buddy/Bailey/Ellie continues in this book - which was ok at first, but about halfway through I began to wish the author had started with an entirely new dog and a new family to go along with it. I get the overall message that a dog keeps being reborn until it has fulfilled its true purpose - I just lost interest in this particular dog and kept thinking the author had dogs confused with cats who actually do have 9 lives (hint of sarcasm). Dog lovers and soft hearted folks will still probably love this book - I'm just a crabby cat lady who found herself less than impressed.

    Story
    "I Loved a Dog's Journey"
    Would you listen to A Dog's Journey again? Why?

    I would, and I just might. This was a perfect continuation of the A Dog's Purpose... Interwoven and just captivating. I didn't want it to end. All of the small details that went into this book are amazing. Things you had to think about, and then things that made you giggle uncontrollably! LOVED IT!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dog's Journey?

    The end when he/she finally got to go to be with all those he/she had loved!


    Which character – as performed by George K. Wilson – was your favorite?

    I think they were all good, but MAX and his big attitude was kind of special!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listen to books in the car on the way to and from work. I could not wait to get in the car to get back to it.

    Story
    "Wonderfully Touching"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved this book, just as much as the first book. This tale of the unconditional love of a dog shows the known true colors of a dog being a guardian, protector, and companion. Anyone who loves dogs should read this book; instead of seeing through the human point of view, enjoy seeing through the dog point of view filled with the humor and reality of life, unfolding for us to see in the eyes of the protagonist. I believe any doglover would enjoy this book, if they are as crazy about animals as I am :)
