Pretty Darn Good

I enjoyed the Bear Bloopers, I have never been to the Smokey Mountains, but after listening to this audio book, it is now on my bucket list of places to visit, and I love all species of bears, The narration was also quite good.

Bear Hijinks in the Smokies

This was an enjoyable and entertaining collection of stories with mishaps involving bears. Several former park rangers, visitors, wildlife photographers and others contributed to this fun audiobook. The narrator and producer has an authentic regional accent that perfectly accompanies the stories from the region. As the author says, don't try any of this at home. Some gems include, the visitors who tried to kidnap a bear in the backseat of their car, the woman who mistook her bear for a dog, the wife who thought her husband was trying to get frisky only to find out it was a bear swatting her and much more! A great selection when you need a smile and a laugh.

You can see the stories

Just like sitting around the kitchen table and reminiscing with friends. I was given a copy by Audiobooks Unleashed and enjoyed every story.

Sorry people can be so silly

It is mainly a story of people doing things they should not do. It was a nice listen. I got this book through audio books unleashed and this is my voluntary and honest review.
