Summary

Ben Carter, pet care specialist, is hired to walk a Shiba Inu named Toby. Unbeknownst to Ben, Toby is no ordinary dog but an inugami - an immortal demon born in feudal Japan and bred for only one purpose...murder.
A mysterious cult seeks to capture the inugami and harness its power for evil. With the help of an elderly luchador and a cop with a heart of gold, Ben must protect Toby and uncover the secret of the Tengu before the cultists can unleash the beast and the bloodlust claims the inugami once more.

Where's the movie?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, yes I would and I have! I asked the author for a copy I could listen and review, just because I am particularly fond of shiba inus, and then - BAM! - I couldn't stop listening! It starts off slow but then picks up the pace, and then it keeps getting better and better. It felt more like a movie to me, I could picture things in my mind perfectly even though the author didn't spend pages upon pages describing little details, and that worked out great, too!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dog Walker?

There were many: I loved all dogs and how different they were, I loved how Blonde Hipster Girl (BHG) always made me laugh, I loved how different yokai behaved. However, the moments that were most memorable to me were those related to Dragon Mask. He was one of the most interesting characters in the book.

What about Travis Baldree’s performance did you like?

Travis Beldree's performance was great! He did the voice acting really well, his characters were all distinct and had a special something, and he even managed to make female voices not annoying! His narration was nothing close to boring, as he made action scenes very different from dramatic ones or even descriptive ones. 10/10 would listen again.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

While all this book is very unexpected, I wasn't expecting to feel so emotional during the scene we see Dragon Mask as an old, tired man. Travis did a wonderful job narrating what Jack wrote.

Any additional comments?

I want to see this as a movie, and I'm pretty sure it has every chance of being as - or even maybe more - entertaining as the book. If we're talking superheroes, this book would be Guardians of the Galaxy or maybe The Avengers instead of Nolan's Dark Knight. I get that it might not be everyone's cup of tea. Anxiously awaiting Dog Walker II!

Awesome, light read!

Where does Dog Walker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of my favorites, for sure. Not one of those "oh jeez, this one ranks among Dickens and Tolstoi", but one I'll certainly recommend to those I can.

Who was your favorite character and why?

LUCHADOR AWESOMENESS!

Which character – as performed by Travis Baldree – was your favorite?

Dragon Mask was really enjoyable. Travis was able to make him sound as I pictured him in my mind: old, tough, and fun.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed more than I cried, but I did feel emotional in one or two scenes.

Any additional comments?

Someone else has already said it, but here goes: MOVIE VERSION, PLEASE!

BEST BOOK + EYEBUTTS

Any additional comments?

It has been a long time since I have loved a book as much as I did "Dog Walker." This odd paranormal horror story centers around a young man who makes his living as a dog walker. When he is assigned a certain Shiba Inu, he discovers that the dog, Toby, is more than he seems. In fact, Toby is a demon designed for ultimate destruction! Dog Walker Ben and Demon Dog Toby team up with an elderly luchador and a badass female cop to fight the cult that wants control of the canine murder machine. This story is silly, spooky, unique, fun, ridiculous, hilarious and hard to put down. I have *never* listened to a book that had me laughing over and over again like this one did. McGuigan has spun a tale that I will never forget, with a promise of a sequel I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on. Travis Baldree delivers a performance so fantastic I thought I was listening to an old time radio show. His comedic timing, accepts and just general acting chops were a brilliant fit for this story; he really brought the characters to life in a way that I found truly enthralling and impressive. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys unusual, outrageous, hilarious stories about demons and dogs. 10/10 I will definitely be listening to this one again!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
