The story is more than a bit over-written, but my real dissatisfaction is with the acting out of interactions only when they involve exaggerated ghetto speech. Really obnoxious. I need to be able to tell in advance when the story is being intelligently read (my preference) and when silly acting out with exaggerated voices is present. It ruins the book for me.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The story was okay, and people who love dogs might enjoy it more than I did. However, Luke Daniels' performance of the story made it virtually unlistenable. Some lines of dialogue, especially with female characters, were whispered so faintly I had to turn up the volume so much it made the non-whispered reading far too loud. Amazing that the producer of this audiobook let this pass. Perhaps the dynamic range of the audio would work in perfect studio conditions, but not in the real world.
Would you be willing to try another book from Theresa Schwegel? Why or why not?
No, the story was interesting at times but pretty lightweight overall.
Would you be willing to try another one of Luke Daniels’s performances?
Never. Mr. Daniels' performance of this audiobook ruined it for me. As mentioned above, he would often whisper dialogue so faintly it simply could not be heard.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Primarily frustration at the whispered dialogue.
