Take a journey as a dog... or a frog... or any animal that is drawn from the lottery of reincarnation.
This is an interesting idea to write a story about and James Herbert succeeds in telling it well.
The narrator, Damian Lynch has a halting way of speaking that I found distracting. So I turned the audio to 1.25 speed and that helped me get into the story immensely.
A charming story with a great narrator. My dog, Jeffie, made me listen to it twice more. Which really wasn't a problem since it's such a delightful story.
I have always loved this book having read it about five times and this narration brings it to life. James Herbert has imagined a dog's life very well and the plot almost becomes irrelevant. Whether you listen in one go or in short bursts makes no difference as it is very easy to follow. Congratulations to Damian Lynch for his subtle characterisation.

it's an interesting book. quite alot darker than that family made film version. but James herbert isn't really known for his kid friendly books. not really sure why Hollywood had to make it quiet so corny. enjoyable. touching and bleak.
