In the finest ANZAC tradition, Horrie the War Dog is a story of intrigue and illusion, and of sacrifice, courage and loyalty.

Would you consider the audio edition of Horrie the War Dog to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print edition, so I don't know which is better. For myself, though, I am very auditory, so I like to hear a story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I would have to say Murchisen (spelling??). He is portrayed as this gruff, tough guy, but when he is around Horrie, he is mush. I love his devotion to Horrie and Horrie's growing devotion to him.
Have you listened to any of David Tredinnick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first time I have heard him and I absolutely LOVE his performance. I will definitely be listening to more from him.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It is towards the end, so I won't spill too much of the beans, but when Horrie is back in Australia and is made a member of one of the veteran's groups.
Any additional comments?
For anyone who enjoys reading stories about the military and about animals, this is the perfect marriage of the two! This true story of Horrie and his hooman is full of adventure, suspense, laughter, and love, and really gives the listener/reader a sense of just how profoundly the presence of an animal, especially a dog, can affect the outlook of people who are experiencing difficult situations, like war. This is just such a fun story, and DAvid Tredinnick's narration is spot on!
