Narrator Anna Fields takes the appropriate tone and pace for a biography of a bird and its owner, a trained biologist trying to be objective about a subject for which she is not. Although the story is about a Red-Lored Amazon Parrot, pet owners will find that the universality of bonding with an animal living in the home invites comparisons to their own pet relationships. The well-chosen anecdotes reflect the observations of a scientist and the emotions of a human being, thus captivating the listener to the extent that the reader occasionally seems to disappear. The audiobook provides a sweet mixture of entertainment and education. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
