Would you try another book written by Jim Kraus or narrated by Donna Postel?
No, unless the reviews were very good.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The first two thirds were good story writing. Colour, mood, description, involvement, revelling in the characters and plot. Then it turned into 'get to the end' asap. I felt emotionally short changed and saddened at the lack of colour and depth. So I would like a more consistent story and a good revelling ending! please! If not just 'tweet' the story.
Have you listened to any of Donna Postel’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Do you think The Dog That Talked to God needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No thank you. Too upsetting first time round. Not unless the author can keep the level of literary quality to the end.
Any additional comments?
A lady loses her husband and son in an accident and buys a Shnauzer pup to keep her company. It could have played out daft and comical that she could speak to the dog, but it didn't ,for some reason it worked and the two had a lovely relationship.
A lot of the time you smiled at the dog's words as you can imagine him or any other dog thinking that; but you were also questioning quite deep issues. I could associate with her anger at losing her family and being resentful of people telling her that God had a plan. It seemed like that plan was unimaginably hard to take, I felt like that when my Uncle died.
Give it a go, I think you'll like it.

Loved this book. Thought it was going to be "hokey" but it turned out to be well written, well thought out, and very interesting. I would purchase another book from this author!

Truly a heartwarming love story about a Schnauzer and his friend, a middle aged woman and her journey to finding herself after a terrible loss. The author’s portrayal of the dog is right on. That’s how Schnauzers are!
