A story for the ages!

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.

This book was a very fast listen. This is not the typical type of book that I would read. That being said, this was a great listen. The narrator really brought life to the story, it was like I was there watching everything happen. Bill Lord just has the best voice for this type of book.

This is a true adventure book, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Buck. From the first minutes, I got attached to him. There were so many different elements and settings in the story that I was almost always on the edge of my seat. There was always something new going on and never really a dull moment.

The narrator brought a great voice to the story and made it an enjoyable listen. This book is great for a younger audience as well as an older on. I can see this being a story for the ages. I really enjoyed it.

Listening to this book was so enjoyable!

Like most people I had read this book as a child but didn't fully appreciate the story until I read it again a few years ago.

I enjoyed the book so much that when I saw it available in an audible format I wanted to get it.

I admit I was a little reluctant only because other books I had purchased in audible form were...idk...boring? I mean the voice was not very expressive and so slow. Geez it took forget to get through a book.

Not the case with this book narrated by Bill Lord. He has an extremely expressive and pleasing voice. The narration painted a captivating picture better than my imagination had when I had previously read the book. Seriously, it was like watching a movie with my ears.
