Spencer Quinn’s quirky, best-selling tales from the four-legged perspective of K-9 school dropout Chet are unlike anything else in the mystery genre. In this third adventure, Chet once again teams with his two-legged detective partner Bernie Little to sniff out the clues in a perplexing case.

Yes, it's a very easy listen and keeps you entertained. The characters are well rounded and interesting. The dog narration is well done but not a "gimmick". You soon forget he has four legs and a tail.
Chet as always is the star of the stories.
I can't remember any other books by this narrator, but he surely captures the feel of Chet in this series.
I usually listen while driving and sometimes the story is so interesting I listen in the car after I arrive at my destination,
Chet & Bernie continue to amaze and astound.I love that the story is told from the perspective of of the dog.

Love these pretty simple stories told from Chet's (the dog's) point of view. Light reading, a little angst, happy ending . . . all's well with the world - more or less.
I liked this second book in the series as much as the first one. A couple times it moves a little slow but it's worth sticking through. See my review for the first book, Dog On It, pretty much the same applies to this one!
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
I like the Chet and Bernie novels--this is the third in that series. But there was a quality issue that prevented me from enjoying this particular audiobook. It was muffled and fuzzy--I even re-downloaded the book in the enhanced format to try to improve the quality, but it did not help. The story was as cute as ever, but the quality was very distracting for me.

Only people who own dogs could appreciate what goes through Chet's ever changing mind. We really do want to know what goes in their little pea brains sometimes and even if the story isn't as strong as people would like it is really enjoyable. This is a book that makes you laugh out loud at times and the story line is pretty good, but that's not the point. Books should be enjoyed on your interest in the book and not on others. I have read/listen to many books that got terrible reviews and completely enjoyed them while others that got rave reviews were completely, utterly awful! So to each their own. This is a very good series, just don't get too serious about it.
Chet of course! Brilliant mind, ever calculating. Wait! That is really Bernie.
I have always thought his reading of any novel was very good.
that it is told from a dog's point of view
Chet the dog of course. His thinking is so like what I imagine our favourite dog to think
would love to hear more of this series
Sure! It's a quick listen and I can't think of any dog lover who wouldn't enjoy a good mystery :)
I love Chet---I feel like I can better relate to my dog when I listen to him. I agree with other readers that it can get annoying at times when Chet says "no time for that now" or "that's a story for another time" and not follow up, but I think that's a good representation of how dog's might think.
He's very chipper. The only thing that I didn't like about his reading is that (and this might be a recording problem) his voice tends to drop off sharply at the end of the sentence. Sometimes it becomes inaudible--just the last few syllables of the word. At first I thought it was my volume messing up, but it's just how it's recorded I guess.
No extreme reactions, but I really enjoyed the scene where Chet and the elephant are walking around together. It's a cute scene.
I love the Chet and Bernie series, but I might stick to reading them in paper version because I read faster than the reader does.
This series is good for cute, light reading. I find myself grinning at Chet's narration and Quinn strikes the right balance of keeping Chet smart and yet still fundamentally a dog who can't quite help himself from being won over by treats and praise or overcome by tangential thoughts of why anyone would *save* bacon or chasing wild geese when humans start talking in metaphors.
