Funny stories - But not as funny as I expected.
I live in the mountains in Colorado and bears are a common sight in our little town. Those of us who live with wildlife know how unpredictable they can be and live our lives accordingly. I am always shocked by stories of people who approach the wildlife in our National Parks. It is astonishing that people do not understand the dangers.
Having said that, I expected this book to be funny rather than shocking, based on the publisher's comments. It is funny. The stories made me smile. But it isn't as funny as I expected. The lessons that this wildlife ranger tries to teach are reiterated with nearly every story and I started to feel as though I was being lectured rather than entertained. In fact, it didn't even feel as though the reader was being taught, after reading the moral the third time. Honestly, I believe that those who choose to read this book probably already understand the seriousness of the issues and could be told once or twice at most and have taken the lesson onboard. I really wanted more humor and less moralizing. I also wanted the stories to be more unique, one from another. I think, perhaps, the book would be better if he included fewer stories and gave them more attention.
The narrator has a deep, silky voice and sounds exactly the way I picture this type of man to sound. Strong, outdoorsy -- based on this voice I picture someone who looks like Sam Elliot.

Loved this book
Where does Bear in the Back Seat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This was an enjoyable trip into the woods with the ranger I enjoyed the description of the area, having been there myself. His experiences were humorously told. My brother recommended the book. I really enjoyed it
