A true roller coaster of emotions. loved it from start to finish, and will certainly always have a place in my heart as one of the greatest books of all time.
I love this book. I read it as a child and remembering it as one of my favorites I decided to listen to the audible version. Twenty years later it is still just as good as I remember.
to me the memories of being a child experiencing this book for the first time. Shared the memory with my own son of the joys of the Ozarks as we retraced the steps of Billy, Ole Dan and Little Ann and re-learn the lessons of loyalty, determination and just how much God loves His creations.
I like the realistic elements of American boyhood from yesteryear retold in such a natural and unassuming fashion to not only hold the attention span of my 7 year-old son, but kept him up at night thinking and talking about the story and upon waking begged to hear more ! A true classic in every way! The audio voice skillfully portrayed and distinguished the characters which made for an enjoyable time of listening and actually enhances the story in my opinion. Highly recommend for emotionally mature children, particularly for that boy who loves the great outdoors!
Heartwarming story. I read this as a teenager and decided to revisit the story on Audible. The Narration is probably the best I've heard. I loved listening to this classic!
My 4th grade teacher read this book to me and ever since its been my alltime favorite book. I am not much of a reader but this is a book I could re-read over and over and never get tired of the heartwarming tale of Billy and his 2 loving dogs, Old danne and Little Anne.
