This will definitely be on my list to listen to again.
It's a great story-all animal lovers should listen to it.
That would be giving the book away.
Yes I would already have it really tells the story of how our Doggie friends feel about us.
It was so sad but happy all at the same time
yes very much so
Any one that has lost a pet or has a pet should read this book!
Sweet, Funny, heart warming
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!!
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.

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.
Again loving to experience books in a new way. Audible form with my handy ipod has given me the ability to "read"
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.
It is a continuation of A Dog's Purpose and it kept the story going to the expected ending.
Just really enjoyed the story...........................
Absolutely better due to the narration.
A dog's journey through life and after!
This was a delightful book that makes one think about all dogs in his/her life.
I was laughing one minute and crying out loud, the next.
I can now talk to and understand my dog.
I had several extreme reactions, like having to stop the car, I was crying so hard. The laughter would come from many of the one liners, mother put the lid on the drinking bowl.
Anyone who has ever had a relationship with a dog will love this book.
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.
Yes, it is a reminder of the love I had for all my dogs growing up.
Very captivating voice.
Good book to a follow up of A Dogs Purpose.
Well read X
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.
The premise of the dog's reincarnations was very promising, but it was just so poorly executed.
Over-the-top cartoon voices for the "villains."
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.
Generally love a book told from a dog's POV, but this one just didn't work for me.
