Publisher's Summary

Hugo was a dog. He died. Now he's a kitten. As Hugo adjusts to his new body (not just a cat - a baby cat!), his new home (San Francisco), his new outside (Where are the mountains? Where is the lake?), and his sudden urge to sit in every box he sees, he wonders if he'll ever see Cassie or Jerry again. 

Back in Lake Tahoe, Cassie and Jerry attempt to come to grips with life without Hugo. Cassie fills the void with "Tadpole Guard" and "Worm Patrol" and ups her protection of Jerry (her human), who is in the midst of a cataclysmic midlife crisis. In addition to his dog dying, Jerry's last two books have been monumental flops, and he's still reeling from his fiancee leaving him for another man. As if these problems aren't enough, his parents (who have become late-stage hippies) are coming to live with him for the entire summer. 

And so begins the journey of three souls, intertwined by love, loss, and perhaps something even greater. Told with Nick Pirog's charm and razor sharp wit, The Speed of Souls is at once a hilarious, moving, and transcendent work of storytelling.

Happy tears

I’m not the crying type but this one had me going a few times. I have seen and can imagine the rest of all the emotions and antics that he describes in this book. It makes me better appreciate the time I have on this earth with all my animals. Highly recommend.

Need more

The only problem I have with books written by Nick Pirog is that there isn't more. He always has just the right about of seriousness to be interesting and the silliness to be entertaining. His picks for narrators are always top notch as well. Look forward to his next book

Beautifully Done!

This book actually made me tear up sometimes as I remembered my own beloved dogs from years ago. Once again, Mr. Pirog, nicely done.

Love Nick Pirog!!

As an animal lover who broke up with her first boyfriend because he said my dog who had died didn’t go to heaven, because she didn’t have a soul 🥰

Excellent, entertaining book to listen to!

This was a surprisingly entertaining book from Nick Pirog, and quite a deviation from the thrillers I have recently enjoyed from him.
