    "Great story killed by terrbile narrator"

    I have been a Dale Brown fan for years and read pretty much everything he wrote as it was published in hardcover. Now I listen to audiobooks to while away the time on my long weekly drives. I loved this book when I read it years ago, and was looking forward to hearing it, and maybe getting a slightly different experience through the narration, as often happens with a really good narrator. But this narrator is the worst I have ever heard. He speaks way too fast, uses a monotone no matter what is happening in the story and all his characters sound alike. When he really tries to portray a different ethnicity his Russian sounds like a Japanese character out of a bad WWII movie. This is my first review ever, and after just finishing Clancy's Dead or Alive read by Lou Diamind Philips (a fantastic narrator) listening to Richard Allen was like getting my wisdom teeth pulled. Never again. Save your money. Listening to this was truly awful. Thank god it was short.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great adaptation of a great book!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    As expected.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an abridged version...if you have read the book, you will miss some of the character development but in the end a very good version.

    "Incomplete"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I read this book years ago and looked forward to listening to it. I regret buying the abridged version I found it less than satisfying.


    Would you recommend Flight of the Old Dog to your friends? Why or why not?

    The written book Yes the abridged audio book No


    What does Richard Allen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    In this instance nothing However I would like to hear him read an unabridged version


    Do you think Flight of the Old Dog needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There are other books featuring the Old Dog andmany of the charachters in this book so the question is meaningless


    Any additional comments?

    A mediocre score has been given only because having read the book I found the cuts made to the abridged version spoiled my listening pleasure. If you have not read the book then this audio version may hold more attraction for you then is has for me
