    Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.

    "Perfect "companion" to the first book!"

    Well written, well read, and so sweet. This is a great completion to "A Dog's Purpose", and definitely recommend that you read them in order. You need go no deeper than the written story, but I have taken away so much more.
    I have found myself listening to other books where animals are mentioned in passing - historical accounts - and found myself wondering what those dogs were thinking. Mr. Cameron should write one about the dogs of Winston Churchill, Napoleon, Hitler and Obama. I don't care about the politics involved, I would love to see how one of these dogs would see the world and it's events of the time. And who but his dog could tell us the better side of Adolf Hitler?
    Any book that makes you think about the contents long after you are done reading it - is one that should be shared.

    "Feel good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have because dog lovers can really appreciate the personality and life long commitment of man's best friend


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Toby, Max, Molly; all the same dog.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    He did a good job with most of the character voices; some voices got a bit odd but overall, it was so easy to listen to.


    Who was the most memorable character of A Dog's Journey and why?

    Toby at the end


    Any additional comments?

    The performance and story really felt like seeing things from a dog's point of view. Great read

    Avid Audio Book listener. Usual suspects are Leadership, Business, Philosophy, Biographies, and Random Fiction. But once every couple of months I choose a book I might not have picked...ever...but with good reviews.

    Story
    "Not quite as good as "A Dog's Purpose" but..."

    "A Dog's Journey", the squeal to "A Dog's Purpose", is a similar journey with a more direct story line yet lacks some of the charm the previous book had. If you loved this first book, you will enjoy the second.

    "A Dog's Journey" is a more linear, straight forward telling of why a puppy may exist in a human's life. The story is similar to last part of the first book and to really enjoy this book, it would be advised to read "A Dog's Purpose" first for the full back story but not required. While the first one reads to be more about the dog's lives, this is more about who the dog loves and the dog taking care of the ones s/he loves.

    The story is well written and a bit heart breaking at times. It takes interesting angles with the dogs life travels but, unlike the first book, seems to be more driven by the main human female lead and her best friend then the dog itself. The human female is the center and glue of the book but you find her "messing up" the dog's story to the point of annoyance at times. Yet her story is true to life and shows when the human's life is in chaos, so is the dogs.

    You will find several good love and life stories throughout this tale. While on the dog's journey, s/he constantly shows the different types of humans in this world and how things might or might not be as random as they may seem. The over arching love story of dog/human and human/human though will leave an overall positive feeling in the end.

    This is a solid read and will be most enjoyable to people who have read the prequel. Would recommend it as a good weekend read.

    This book ranks among the top 20 books I have listened to, it is the second in the series.

    The litte dog Max was the most memorable charcter, his quirks and fears and eccentricities so true to life.

    "Better Than The First Book In The Series!"
    Where does A Dog's Journey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent narration of a novel written especially for dog lovers. I found myself interacting with my dogs at a new level after I finished this book. I laughed, cried, and everything in between. I seriously couldn't stop listening!


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

    I loved the end. It was perfect.


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

    His inflection really makes his voice take on each character throughout the story.

    "Read these 2 books!!!"
    Where does A Dog's Journey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book is amazing, wonderful, exciting, sad, joyful, heartwrenching... I have been urging everyone I know to read/listen to these!

    I have always had dogs in my life, and my career is focused around them, so it was a natural choice for me to check these two books out. The way W. Bruce Cameron gets all the nuances of a dog's behavior, their little quirks and why they do things is hilarious! He captures the innocence and love of a dog's heart, and really creates such a beautiful doggy soul. It all seems perfectly natural and it's clear he's been around and loves dogs!

    I will definitely be listening to these again in the future, these are not a one time listen!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You really feel connected to every one of the main characters. Of course, your heart is so connected to Toby/Buddy/Bailey/Molly/etc. He/She is so entwined with the ones she is connected to, that the humans all become a part of one whole.


    What about George K. Wilson’s performance did you like?

    BRILLIANT. WONDERFUL. What an amazing narrator! I am going to look into any other audio book performances he has. He takes on different voices, but never once does it seem forced or cheesy. It works perfectly with each character! Really adored his performance in both books!


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

    Yes! I couldn't wait to hop in my car each day, and regretted having to turn it off and wait to listen to it again!!


    Any additional comments?

    I urge everyone I talk to read these books, they are wonderful! Perfect for dog and animal lovers! Loved every second of them!!
