The Story of Rosé by John Katz
I bought this book for $3.99 on 8/6/12. It is on my book shelf but I am unable to access it. I won't be making any further purchases
Until I am able to read the book I have already bought. When I try to contact the App Store a pop up says it is unavailable, how con-
This is an amazing ebook. Thank you so much for another wonderful story. The pictures and videos are incredible! Look great on my iPad!
What an awesome, multifaceted experience this book is! The Story of Rose takes ebooks to a brand new level. Insightful writing, as always, from Jon Katz combined with his own thought-provoking photography make it a forerunner in the future of reading. His videos bring the story alive and put the reader directly into the moment. Everyone involved in the release of this book was responsive to initial issues and seemed to solve problems quickly. Encouraging in these days of digital "separateness"!
I have always loved Jon Katz's writing and have both ebook and hard copy issues of many of them. This latest adventure of his combines all of his rich and varied talents. A refreshing look at so many things; farm life, dog's relationships to people, sheep herding, hospice work, and a deep and resounding call to participate in life. Thank you once again Jon! For those who pay several dollars to download video games, etc.....this is an amazingly low price for such enriching content!!!
Truly enjoy reading almost anything written by Jon Katz but this book has so much emotion in it. Rose was a very remarkable dog and it is great to share her story. Made me cry again at the end. Beautiful writing!
After some initial trouble with the enhanced version when it was first released yesterday, I redownloaded after the tech people made some fixes and it now works perfectly on my first generation iPad. The enhanced version (only $1 more and a steal for less than a cup of coffee) is absolutely worth it. Beautiful photos and video make for a unique ebooks experience. The book itself is the beautiful true story of a remarkable dog. Wonderfully written, and exactly what I've come to expect from Jon Katz -- a powerful affirmation of what a good dog can do, and where a "spirit dog" can take you. Tissues needed at the end, but the book is a celebration of a canine life well lived.
after a few initial tech bumps to get the enhanced version to work as intended, I'm happy to reccomend it to all.
From the intial opening sequence which alone can induce misty eyes on through the final galleries and parting images, this book is sure to touch the heart of dog lovers.
Mr. Katz has crafted a fond remembrance and stirring tribute to the Rose who didn't just work for him but worked ON him her magic of healing.
It is said we get not the animal we chose but the animal we need. In getting Rose, Katz got the animal he needed who was able to lead him on, and us as we peer over his sholder into Roses's world via this book, to a better understanding of life and our place in it.
This book also hints at the possibilites that e-books hold for the furture with its inclusion of videos of Rose working her magic on sheep and human alike.
Kudos to all involved in the production of this little gem that keeps Rose's spirit alive for us all.
The Story of Rose
What a great book! I loved the enhanced version. I had no problems getting the video to play on my new iPad. Jon is a wonderful writer and Rose was an amazing dog. Their story of life together was heartfelt and I laughed and cried through the whole book. A must read. I loved all the pictures and videos. Well worth the $3.99 price tag. I actually would have paid a lot more!
