A touching story about a great dog
I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review
Well, Lucky is one smart dog! This little Jack Russell really comes to life on the pages.
Don't forget to have some tissues handy, there are also lots of humor sprinkled throughout the book.
This is a sweet and touching story of a Human who was rescued by Lucky the dog. Just in the nick of time before going to the gallows, Lucky finds his forever home. The story tells the story from Lucky's point of view.
I want more! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves dogs.
Bob Soltys did a fabulous job of writing and narrating his book about his dog Lucky. Btw I think Bob was one lucky human to be adopted by Lucky

Awww Sweet Lucky!

A Lucky Life was such a heartwarming story and told from Lucky's POV. Lucky was literally a last minute rescue making him not only lucky but blessed as well. Thank goodness Bob arrived when he did. Lucky is such a cutie too. I loved hearing his story and the message was wonderful. "Don't take stuff from dog haters". I'm a pet parent of a giant breed rescue and I've had my share of "stuff" from people.

I really enjoyed Bob Soltys's story. It was unique in its own way. I hope more people listen and decide to adopt a dog or any pet rather than buy. I think it's so true that they rescue us as much as we rescue them.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

A touching story about a great dog.

What did you love best about A Lucky Life?

Well, Lucky is one smart dog! He really comes across as a 3-dimensional character.<br/>Humor is sprinkled through out, but don't forget the Kleenex.

What other book might you compare A Lucky Life to and why?

A Dog's Life, like this story, is told from the dog's perspective.

What about Bob Soltys’s performance did you like?

Since he's Lucky's Dad, his love for him shines through with a good voice that is strong and clear.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

More often than not, you'll be smiling while you read, but there are some emotional stories.

A Lucky Life

Where does A Lucky Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an easy listen, the narrator has a pleasant voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lucky, he is a rescue who enjoys bike rides, so cool.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, at just over an hour long, it was easy to listen to in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Would be best accompanied with the text, as much of it relates to photos Bob took, although he does give a link to his website. I think this book was written as a fundraiser for a JR rescue.<br/><br/>“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
