What made the experience of listening to Going Home the most enjoyable?
What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Comforting to hear an actual voice.
What did you learn from Going Home that you would use in your daily life?
It's ok to think about having another pet without guilt.
Any additional comments?
Well written using the author's own experience from another book, in which I was very curious and cannot wait to start this new book I just purchased. My beloved dog meant so much top me for so many years. I find myself at lost and cast adrift as she was our anchor of our life. Who am I going to come home for a loving walk with the summer breeze now??

Would you try another book from Jon Katz and/or Tom Stechschulte?
I don't know. I don't think so. The narrator I liked, just not the content.
What was most disappointing about Jon Katz’s story?
I recently lost a dog. I'm vegetarian, dog trainer and likely compassionate to a fault. I really needed to hear something about dogs and how we love and grieve dogs. This book was about that, but he also discussed how animals are different than humans, how we need to prioritize human relationships, how dogs are not people and we shouldn't grieve them the same. I am in the middle of grief for my 12 year old dog, and this message just doesn't jive with my heart and ethics. You may enjoy this book much more than I. I don't think everyone needs to have the same perspective I do. For me, my dogs are their own person. I don't see them as human, but I don't value them differently than a human. He discussed shooting a little lamb with a 22 caliber gun, and although I recognize the lamb may have been suffering, I struggle with his method of euthanasia. If you are like me, I don't know if you'll enjoy this book. If you are a farmer and have a different perspective, you'll likely get a lot more out of it. I wanted to like it. I needed to like it, but I just couldn't. Its one of the few books I stopped listening too.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
His discussion on grieving his dog.
