    Story
    "If you are a Dog Lover, this book is for you!"
    If you could sum up A Dog's Journey in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, Funny, heart warming


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Max, Eventhough I'm not fond of chihuahuas I love the way the author describes how such a small dog should serve his purpose in life. Max is funny, is brave, is strong willed and such a Good Dog!!


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

    Narrator is so fresh. It's and easy listening novel. I read the first book physically but hearing his voice made it more real. He totally sounds like I imagine a dog's inner voice.


    If you could rename A Dog's Journey, what would you call it?

    Guardian dog angel's


    Any additional comments?

    Some people may found it lame and stupid but if you ever owned a dog and bonded tight with him/her, you'll gonna love this book. The description of the world seen from a dog's point of view is funny but also, it makes "human" sense. I loved the insights the dog has about humans and how the author puts into words how a dog experiments and lives this bond with his/her human.

    "Must listen"

    The 2 books are a great story of life, love and loss. The other problem with the book is that it ended but if you listen you get an understanding of endings from the lucky dog's perspective. Well done. This will be a 2 book series that I will listen to again. Fantastic narration.

    I really LOVED a Dog's Purpose. I thought the first half of this book was really slow, not as surprising and entertaining as a Dog's Purpose. It got better towards the end though.

    Story
    "Irritating!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More peaks to go with the valleys. This story was pretty much an unrelenting series of bad things happening to the main character, CJ. Plus, I began to find CJ unsympathetic because many of her woes were based on her own stupid choices. Kind of like watching a horror movie, where the victim goes down to the scary dark basement alone - when she should know the slasher is down there - and doesn't even bother to turn on a light.

    Also, the characters could have used more shading. Everyone was either Good or Bad.


    What was most disappointing about W. Bruce Cameron’s story?

    The premise of the dog's reincarnations was very promising, but it was just so poorly executed.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Over-the-top cartoon voices for the "villains."


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Eye-rolling at the maudlin aspects and growing irritation, including at myself for finishing it instead of bailing. I only stuck with the whole thing because kept thinking (wrongly) that there would be a satisfying pay-off in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Generally love a book told from a dog's POV, but this one just didn't work for me.
