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.

About halfway into the book the dog goes away and for the next 2-3 hours it's a separate story, that includes several parties of people stranded on too many islands that I found annoying and hard to stay focused.
narrator was good and I really enjoyed the first half, but gave up listening halfway and moved on to next book.
