The narrator Steve Chase, did a excellent job in narrating the story, making important moments like the accidental death with using the gun, very real. I could feel as if I was there every minute of the story.

Any additional comments?
The author's word section was quite touching and was a great start to such a wonderful short audiobook.
I really liked this short, meaningful story. The author states that it was originally written as a screen play and after listening to it I'd love to see it as a film. As the story unfolded I found myself pulled into the story. Well written with deep meaning and interesting characters (that I'd like to know more about!) this is a story about life choices, making up for the past and what happens after death. I couldn't get this out of my head and found myself dwelling on it hours after I finished it. It has a great ending that is quite thought provoking. It's just under an hour long which is the perfect length for a gym session or commute. I'm new to audiobooks but after this book I will definitely get more!

Who was your favorite character and why?
The German shepherd. I have a German Shepherd and I enjoyed that little added part to the book.
