I loved the story of Wesley the Owl

I never write reviews, but generally read a few if i don't know the author. I loved this book! I have birds and could totally relate to the authors view of Wesley. I started listening to it yesterday afternoon and couldn't stop. If you don't love birds it might not be for you, but if u love animals and connect with them,this book is charming and insighful. I would recommend this book to people that love animals or have school aged children. it is a wonderful story.

Charming and informative

Surprising and informative in its revelation of the abilities of a barn owl, charming in the experience of an intimate relationship, "Wesley the Owl" is delightfully read. I'm still musing over many memorable events of a shared life.

4 the love of bitds

I have a 24-year relationship with my parrot who also thinks of me as my mate.
I just re-read the book for the 2nd time.
This story made me laugh, made me cry. The story is well told, well written. I came to love Stacey &Wesley. I miss them already. Narration is GREAT & I usually do not like female narrators as they mimic male voices.
Story is A+++
It is "The Way of The Owl. "

This books reader has a nice voice to listen to. The book is a nice read that takes you into the life of raising an owl and the relationship that was formed in the heartfelt story. Would recommend for any owl/animal lover.

Wonderful book

I absolutely loved this book. I learned so much about owls, and other animals. I would recommend this book for anyone twelve and older. I know that reviews are supposed to have things that you liked, and did not like about the book, but I loved everything about this book. It was educational, yet entertaining, funny, and very sad in the last few chapters. It even inspired me to symbolically "adopt" a barn owl.

Great story, well find

Would have given this 5 stars but for the bit about humans communicating via mental telepathy with birds. Other than that, a moving story of one loving, owl obsessed woman whose obsession proved to be a life saver.

Wonderful Story of an Amazing Relationship

A wonderful story for anyone who has ever been close to any bird of prey or raptor. Gave me great insight into the fascinating behavior of owls and my love, falcons. If you have ever been so fortunate as to experience the trust or companionship of any these amazing creatures, you will truly relate to and be moved by the story of Wesley.

Wesley the Owl like no other book

Wesley the Owl held a treasure trove of animal information and heart. Stacey O'Brien painted word pictures that made you fall in love with Wesley. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful read!

I feel so fortunate that Stacy O'Brien shared her story of Wesley the Owl. I smiled, I laughed and cried a little bit in this heart warming tale of love. Love is all we really need to thrive. Excellent read.
