Man's best friend

Would you listen to Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home again? Why?

I did enjoy Angelo's adventures and will listen to it again, maybe more than once.

What did you like best about this story?

I love dog stories, especially, smart and talented ones.

Have you listened to any of Brian McCracken???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't know if I've listened to to any other books Brian McCracken has narrated but he has a wonderful deep and very masculine voice.

If you could take any character from Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Angelo out to dinner, the human characters didn't have enough impact on me to want to know them better, and surely not to take them to dinner. Angelo sounded like he'd be the better company.

Any additional comments?

I liked this book for the most part. I had a Border Collie years ago, and he was as smart as Angelo. Angelo was a real survivor. I found some of the abuse he received with horror. I nearly did not want to listen to the book when it first started, as I can't stand anyone harming a dog, or any animal for that matter. Dogs are just special and forgive so well. Human's should take some valuable life lessons from them.
