Great story,excellent performance
Pax needs to be included in MS & HS curricula
The poetic storytelling that connects humans and animals and packs a lot of metaphor and relatable content into one tale.
I loved everything about the narrator's performance because his tone, cadence and accents felt "warm" and familiar to me.
Many moments moved me and kept me wanting more but certainly the bittersweet end moved me to tears and evoked some powerful feelings about compassion, love, loss and letting go.
I will hold Pax and his boy Peter in my heart forever. This audiobook is merely a little over 5 hours long, yet, it managed to leave its imprint in my heart and memory. It's a rare thing when a book will do that to you. Diablomon!!
