Flush, already immortalised in poetry, is vividly brought to life in this humorous, compassionate yet unsentimental portrayal of a dog's loves, fears, jealousies, and reconciliations. This is a triumph of imaginative, sympathetic and remarkably accessible writing.

Told from point of view of Barrett Browning's dog
Great story and beautifully read, but the maximum volume is very low, making it difficult to listen to without earphones in an environment with any noise

More of Woman's Best Friend
A charming book, based on history told from the watchful point of view of a spaniel. If you love beautifully written prose verging on poetry...if you love dogs...if you Virginia Woolf this book is not only a grand slam but perhaps the Holy Grail? I did not want to book to end and wish there was an unabridged version. I will be reading Flush again very soon.

Delightful and subtle social commentary
Even if Virginia Woolf's is not normally your favorite, this book is a treat. It captures so many of the things that make her an amazing author and does it only a few hours: her sensory perceptions of London and Florance, her own way of communicating what she admires - or doesn't - in people, and her ability to write so totally from a single perspective at a time (this time a dog's!) Found myself doing a double-take at my own dog.
Would also love to own an unabridged audio of Flush AND an unabridged audio of A Room of One's Own.
(Be sure to catch the section about the spirits in the legs of the tables, from Flush's perspective)

Does not match to the book
What would have made Flush better?
Please indicate which edition of the print book this audio version is base on.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Flush?
Don't cut anything, stay 100% to it's original!
Any additional comments?
Please take off the link of this audio book from the Amazon store page.I brought the more expensive edition of the print because I thought it will match the audio version(which still linked together!).Sometimes I use audible for my English class. It save me a lot time compare to reading the actual print back and forth. But this doesn't work if two version doesn't match!

Superb on every level
A beautifully written beloved dog story by a world-class author read by a world-class narrator. Just the best.
