What a wonderful book 5+

Would you consider the audio edition of Dangerous Beauty to be better than the print version?

The audio version of the book inflects emotion to the stories which a text based book cannot


What other book might you compare Dangerous Beauty to and why?

It is a group of stories about the Yellowstone area as seen through the eyes of a wildlife photographer . So books that cover that are not all that common. Some might be John Muirs books, or All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot and his love of animals and their personalities


Which character – as performed by Eric Martin – was your favorite?

Old scarface. It was touching about a Grizzly that was aging and having a difficult time getting about. We can all relate to that sooner or later


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The other visitors and residents of Yellowstone NP


Any additional comments?

A wonderful book I really enjoyed. Animals have personalities and they were captured very well in this book. A must if your visiting the park or any large wildlife park to understand the residents better.

If I could have given 6 stars for story I would have. If you love animals, the outdoors are a photographer , hiker its a joy to listen to the stories.

I was given this book to review. The opinions are my own and honest; what I like or don't like are my true feelings

interesting and educational

Where does Dangerous Beauty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Well, it may not rank at the top like a riveting novel, but definitely a great listen for anyone interested in wildlife.


What did you like best about this story?

The true stories of encounters with bears.


What does Eric Martin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The feel that you are really there experiencing it.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't forget there is real danger in getting up-close and personal with wildlife.


Any additional comments?

It would have been nice if there could have been at least 2 narrators to go back and forth between, just because all the stories were not by the same author.
