Enjoyable read

Would you listen to Dead Dog again? Why?

I would not listen to it again but I would recommend it. The story was told well enough that I would not need to have another reading to remember it.

What did you like best about this story?

This isn't my typical story genre but it came highly recommended. The story moved at a good pace and kept me interested the entire time. I also enjoyed the location and the description of the terrain and creatures. That brought a well rounded feel to the story.

Have you listened to any of Michael Hacker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

My first Mr. Hacker performance and I will be looking for more. His style brings a lot of depth to the characters and really pulls you into the story. Quite often a reader can make or break a book. Mr. Hacker makes this book for me.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Dog to be better than the print version?

Yes. I could never read any book as well as this audio book was read.

What other book might you compare Dead Dog to and why?

The descriptions through out the story reminds me of listening to Will Patton reading a James Lee Burke story.

What does Michael Hacker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Feelings. You are part of each character.

Any additional comments?

Foul language is constantly used and is part of the story for the characters. If off color language is acceptable to you then this book will be in your all time top ten list.
