  • I received a copy of the novel last week from the author to read and give an honest review, and had placed it on my nightstand for when I got in the mood to dig in to a new book I finally commenced reading it last night, and with the exception of a brief intermission to get something to drink and finish off some leftover pizza I may have been channeling Barkley, lol , I found myself right back into the story I had to stop a few times and go back and re read some pages after a bit of my own daydr [...]


  • Between two photos one a black haired puppy and the other an older dog, the hair turned gray is a story, a love story of a woman and her dog, Barkley Those of us dog lovers dog parents know this story all too well and yet it can never be told enough for in the reading a joy is rekindled of what it is to adopt a puppy and share our lives with them as they grow and forever steal our hearts But this is no ordinary dog story about the love of a dog, it is a soul searching journey on the depth of pas [...]

  • I was disappointed in the end The book was good but the end dragged on and got so sad Of all the endings that one side swiped me.


  • The story of a LifeThe writing is poetic, full of images and wonder and love Well worth one s time I laughed, cried , and found solace in shared experiences.

  • Reading Richter Scale 5 Stars The author has a way with words that will blow your mind away What an amazing read Upon first downloading this free Kindle Unlimited book with our Prime membership, I figured The Book of Barkley Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever by L.B Johnson was a novel about the antics of a puppy dog But it is a novel that is so much than that.With words written from her heart and brought forth from her soul, Johnson not only describes a dog s life well live [...]


  • No one who has ever had a dog as a companion will be able to read The Book of Barkley Love and Life through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever by L B Johnson with dry eyes.Johnson tells the story of her life, from childhood to adulthood, from the perspective of her relationship with Barkley, a Lab that she got when he was just a stubborn ball of fur who selected her when she viewed the litter of which he was a part Her descriptions of adjusting to Barkley s presence in her life, and how this helpe [...]


  • MemoriesThis book brought back some wonderful memories of the best dog we ever had We got him from the local shelter He was not a looker but definitely a Heinz He was the color of a golden retriever with the head of a lab, the freckles and forehead blaze of a heeler and the jowls of a bloodhound He played hard with our 8 year old son and his friends, and then could turn and immediately put his head in the lap of a daughter having a bad day We didn t know exactly how old he was, but when our son [...]


  • The fact the proceeds are going to charity just makes me love this book even .The Book of Barkley is the story of a labrador and the journeys he shares with his human companion in the 60s and 70s It has an autobiographical element as the author shares many of her own experiences with plenty of nostalgia and philosophical musings.Barkley s antics are often amusing and charming, but there are moments of real poignance that will resonate long after you ve finished reading Johnson has ensured you wi [...]


  • I received this book from in exchange for a review.This is the story of a black lab It is also the story of trust Author L B Johnson reminds us that often the simplest things are the best things Family, friendship, trust these are what make life fulfilling Barkley quickly captures the readers heart, as he and his best friend, Mr Squeaky, along with his human, L.B journey together through life with all of its ups and downs This story is emotional I cried, but I also laughed It brought back wonder [...]


  • Although at times it felt like she got a little carried away with the creativity of her descriptions, I truly enjoyed this book Everything around me is telling me to slow things down, enjoy my life, surroundings and how the world is made up This book did exactly that Whether it be the love of an animal, a spouse, a brother or sister or the love of a hobby stop and smell the roses as my husband likes to tell me Thank you L.B Johnson for the light you brought with this book through the eyes of you [...]


  • 4 StarsLove and Life indeed A poignant tale about Barkley, a Labrador Retriever It s not just about the life of this dog, but how he affected those in his life There is a deep connection between humans and dogs, and as all pet owners can attest, dogs are not just mere pets The bond between pet and owner is not just filled with love, but sometimes frustration The author writes I could have gotten a cat No, I m not a cat person I could have gotten a pet rock Or a BMW She was in her pajamas chasing [...]


  • I feel like this book was less about Barkley and about the narrator s take on life I appreciated every bit that included the black lab but didn t follow the train of thought for how a mess on the carpet could relate to a childhood story I felt like the author went off on tangents and attempted to make commentaries where none was needed It is a heartfelt story about a woman s love for her dog but overall it didn t stick to that specific story arc for me.


  • I never give anybody five stars But this one, yeah It earns them Keep a box of tissues handy Be prepared to choke up on occasion Lyrical writing, given to discursive side tracks, as of an untrained hunting dog following rabbit scents But always returning to the main path of the narrative, seamlessly, with skill and grace They tell you that, to be loved, you should be a person someone would want to love L.B reveals herself as someone you know is worthy of a dog s love.


  • This book was so beautifully written that it was almost painful Each word was placed just so, which added depth and feeling that was easy for the reader to share I had to read this in small chunks, because it was overwhelming at times Reading this book was like looking at a sculpture or painting that takes your breath away I highly recommend it.


  • A good description of life with a dogI liked this book because it was realistic about life with a dog Each day is a gift of pure love with no restrictions The trials and tribulations are a good story The end was so nicely written.


  • Read this all in one day while on vacation There are 50 chapters, but they are each pretty short The writing is a little imperfect and choppy, but it is beautiful in its simplicity Barkley will hang onto your heart and not let go


  • I liked this book The author seemed to jump around a bit It was than a book about Barkley, it had life lessons in it as well An enjoyable read although I cried in the end as I lost my black lab shepherd mix to bone cancer as well.


  • The story of the author and her Labrador, Barkley This book had me both laughing and crying Some the stories of the dog really hit home This book however, isn t all about Barkley, as much as it is about the author and life lessons and how the dog is a huge part of her journey.


  • We are proud to announce that THE BOOK OF BARKLEY LOVE AND LIKE THROUGH THE EYES OF A LABRADOR RETRIEVER by L.B Johnson is a B.R.A.G Medallion Honoree This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money


  • This book didn t live up to my expectations It seemed to me that the story was about the author and her view of how Barkley saw things Barkley was a sweet dog and I enjoyed the story to a certain point, but it dragged in a lot of places and I skipped over some of the trite diaglogue.


  • This was a very interesting book At times it made me laugh and other times cry If you have ever owned a dog this book put many things into perspective and reminds you of the joy and pain in owning a pet.




  • I loved this book I received a copy for an honest review, which can be found at forumsinebookclub viewI highly encourage everyone to read this


  • Great book Each story it is a reminder to those who had or have a dog on their lives And how this creature makes your day to day better and worth living.


  • For the love of dogs This book came to me the week I too lost my black lab after 16 years You are never alone with the unconditional love of your dog.
