i'm guessing most of you know this story but I was surprised to find out that the end was revealed in the second paragraph. (see above)
Now, I did not choose to read this book again. Reading it in my youth was enough for me. But, my son choose this book for his current reading assignment (classic novel) and we read together every night. I warned him that the story would be sad but he had his mind made up.
So, we read it and I was fine... up until the shooting part. After that, I couldn't hide my tears. Maybe if I wasn't reading aloud, but it was obvious. And, my son laughed. Then he took the book from me and read a page or two until I decided I could handle reading again... barely. A least my crying made the story less sad for him.
People who want to cry... ;) No, seriously I think this book would be good for people who like to read about pioneer times or um... people who like to cry about animals.
The violence in the book is the normal violence one would expect from encountering wild animals (hogs). I never found it disturbing and neither did my son.

Although it is aimed at children it has a broad appeal. My family listened to it in the car on holiday and everyone was enthralled.
Add to that Barry Corbin's superb reading and this is one of very few products I would rate 5+ if there was such an option.
Die Eulenforscherin Stacey darf ein Schleiereulen-Junges aufziehen, 19 Jahre wird der kleine Wesley an ihrer Seite bleiben. Es gibt viele Passagen in dem Buch, die einfach wunderbar, lustig und sehr rührend sind. Besonders beeindruckt hat mich die Aussage, dass ein tiefer Blick in die Augen einer Eule auch ein Blick ins Universum ist. Das glaube ich gern. Das Ende dieser großartigen Liebesgeschichte (denn man kann seine Eule, egal wie nervenaufreibend ein Leben mit ihr sein mag, nur lieben) war traurig, aber unabwendbar. So ist das Leben. Mit Eule.
Es jetzt im Original zu lesen hat mir viel Freude gemacht. Es ist eine wunderschöne "Heile Welt" Geschichte, und ich war erstaunt, wieviel ich davon noch kannte.
