I had read a recommendation for this book, a brief one, and my being a dog lover, was looking forward to listening to the tales of this English Pointer. I was so surprised that this far exceeded the story of a resilient, intelligent dog. The history of this part of the world during WWII I wasn't aware of existing. The Bridge Over The River Kwai everyone from my generation is familiar with, but the POW's utilized, and tortured as slave labor building the railroad across Sumatra I was not. It is clear this book has been meticulously researched, and the reading of it was excellent. The trials and tribulations of this remarkable dog, and all of the humans she so positively impacted, is story for any generation. I could not recommend this audio or printed book more.

Would you try another book from Robert Weintraub and/or Dan Woren?
I don't think so. i bought the book because I love stories about dogs. Of the 14 or so hours of this book, probably not more than two are about the dog and owner. I have not finished the book yet but I am well into the second portion and have finally got to the point where the owner and dog meet up. It has been a struggle to get this far.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Waiting for Robert Crais new book.
What about Dan Woren’s performance did you like?
The book was performed well.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I think I might have liked an abridged version better. I do like the stories where the dog is involved.
