by | Read by Edoardo Ballerini

Mystery & Suspense • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1986

Edoardo Ballerini does a top-notch job of narrating this story. Listeners join Travis Cornell, who is hiking while trying to make sense of his life. When he chances upon an apparently stray golden retriever, things will never be the same. Ballerini creates a balance of warmth and suspense that reflects the heartwarming, yet at times frightening, aspects of the plot. He helps to characterize the three protagonists, including Einstein, the highly intelligent dog. In particular, he emphasizes the development of Nora by injecting increased confidence into her voice as events unfold. Ballerini's narration is well paced, allowing the suspense to build and keeping the listener engaged. A thrilling listen.
