The story is great. The narrators really allows the listener to really imagine what is going on. Having two different narrators really worked out well with this story. I do not remember how this book became part of my library, since it was purchased in 01. After re-listening to it, I would like to see more stories from Kirsten Bakis.
The story is like a dog version of The Secret of NIMH.
I loved the fantasy of the story. Very good sci fi! The only thing that disappointed me about this book was that one of people doing the voice of one of the characters was not very good. It brought what otherwise would have been a fantastic story down a little I hate to say. I think I would have been better off reading the actual paperback myself on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate. I could have imagined the voices in my head a little better than the poor reading ... it was a distraction to the story. Still, I did enjoy it.
I've been an Audie Awards judge since 2008. I have enjoyed audiobooks since the days when they were called "Books on Tape".
Not a fantastic story. It would make a great movie with a little more action. Imagine a story where Artist William Wegman (the photographer who dresses Weimeraners) meets Dr. Frankenstein. It's a great idea, great narration, but I think there could have been more done with the story. Sound quality was also poor.
I like dogs, and this book plays them out in a complex way. The story moves along at a good pace, and the readers' voices (1 male, 1 female) are very good to the parts. Although the mechanics of a humanoid canine are quite awkward, it's past to look past that into the story. If you like German history and large breed dogs, you'll like this story. I was bummed in the missing Rottweiler, a must-have German breed, and my favorite... and that the story was too short. At least, I don't recall hearing anything about rotties.
