A DOG'S PURPOSE A Novel for Humans

by | Read by George K. Wilson

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Doggie reincarnation is what’s in store for Bailey/Ellie/Buddy. The dog point of view is bemused and matter-of-fact as George Wilson takes us along for three rebirths, one as a girl dog. If you can buy into the premise of a feral stray coming back for second, third, and fourth helpings of life—first as a young boy’s companion, then as a search-and-rescue hero, and finally as a black lab who connects again with the boy (now an old man)—you’ll love this inside look at a canine. The dog is on the hunt for his purpose in life, but he (and possibly you, too) feels a bit worn out by the time he hits his fourth time out of the gate. Wilson’s steady, sure voice will stay in your head as you look at your own dog. Has your pup lived with someone else before you? How do you compare? The metaphysical ramifications may have you chasing your own tail. M.M.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
