YOU HAD ME AT WOOF by Julie Klam

AUDIOFILE EARPHONES WINNER

#21 IN EMUSIC BEST AUDIOBOOKS OF 2010

Now available at Tantor Media

“One needn’t be a dog lover to be moved by this charming book. Klam teaches humans how to love and make compromises when necessary through the process of coping with our pets’ needs, quirks, and demands. Klam’s self-deprecating personality is engaging. When we meet her and her first dog, Otto, she’s hilarious as she imagines people thinking she can attract only a four-legged companion. Narrator Karen White’s spirited delivery enhances the lively text. She perfectly differentiates the many personalities that Julie and her dogs meet in their travels. Klam is a splendid observer, and White delivers, especially when portraying Sharon, an Aussie VIP in Boston terrier circles.”  S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2011]

“I listened to You Had Me At Woof on audio, and it was a wonderful decision.  The narrator, Karen White, is engaging and tells the story very well.  The listen is unabridged and runs almost 6 hours.” S.Krishna’s Books blog, March 2011

“This gem of a book is a gift to dog lovers everywhere.” —Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“In this appealing memoir of one woman’s love affair with dogs, Klam worries that people will see her as a “dog person.” By the end of the book, they undoubtedly will, as she goes from besotted owner of a Boston terrier to frantic animal advocate. The most memorable canine character is the bedraggled Dahlia, who amazes everyone, including the vet, with a stunning feat at the ripe old age of nine. Klam can relate: “We were all happy to know that life could surprise us just when we thought we were done.” Great Reads: More November 2010
