Nice little freebie

Fun little listen with thoughts about what it means to be Canadian. He has an authentic voice reading his own writing, so I went on to try How to Get Back Up and am enjoying that as well.

Great Canadiana

This brought a lot of smiles to my face as I listened. I was driving in my car along the Trans Canada, admiring the fall colours, & this well written & well narrated book was the perfect accompaniment to my drive. 🇨🇦🤗

It was Awesome!

I really enjoyed this short story. I could totally relate to many of the authors experiences of growing up in Canada. I will be sharing it with my kids!

Short & Sweet

While Canada has had it's dark moments in history, Neil does an excellent job of reminding Canadians how lucky we are. His story is not everyone's, but it is certainly a good one.

Reminiscent of an 80's childhood

Short and sweet. Tangible memories of 'back in the day'! I completely forgot about the colored withdrawal and deposit slips at the bank.

I loved it!!!

As an expat Canadian, I enjoyed hearing the multitude of reasons clarifying my decision to make Canada my home. I vividly remember the mentioned Canadian made commercials, as well as the "Hinterland Who's Who?" These highlighted Canada's native animals, the beaver, the polar bear and the Swift fox, which I read is making a comeback in the Medicine Hat region. Oh Canada, I am not your native, but I am forever your grateful citizen!

I’m ready to move

I thoroughly enjoyed this expose’! What the author shares I know to be true. Having been to Canada several times, I appreciate the culture, the norms, & the people. The only down side, & I know this from living in Minnesota, is the prolonged cold winter!

Enjoyable little listen

Sweet tribute by a native to the country he loves. I enjoyed learning a little bit more about my neighbors to the north. I’ve no doubt that Canada is awesome.

It Really Does Sound Awesome

Listening to this book takes hardly any time at all.

I recommend it for several reasons:

It has a delightful story

It is really easy to listen to quickly

It makes you wish you could visit, and perhaps live in Canada (if you haven’t or don’t)

It makes you wish the world was more like Canada

Makes me want ketchup chips (and to try some of those other things he mentions)

The author narrates it and makes the story better told in his own voice

And of course, now I really want to visit Canada even more than I did.

Very fun and enjoyable, this is the first of this authors books I have listened to/read. I can’t wait to listen to others that are available.

Canada eh!

I absolutely loved this Audible original. I've been in Canada for nearly 30 years now and a Canadian for the last 3.
This is a book that I'll turn to when I need a little spirit lift.

Unexpected

I don't remember how or when I picked up this title. After finishing a draining long book I found this in my library and gave it a listen. The beginning with the bank calendars did not give me hope. Soon though, his utopic musings started to sound very appealing. I can see why so many people choose to live there. Were I not so firmly established where I am, his descriptions made me think that maybe I could choose the same.

I'm disappointed

I think the beginning of this 30 mins listen was beautiful, the vivid and breathtaking depiction of the scenery of Canada and it’s changes of seasons, and it made me wish I grew up in a country where there are four seasons. However, things went downhill pretty fast after that. The rest of the audio felt pretty much like a propaganda of how everyone should become a Canadian and how awesome Canada is. The author’s narration was quite good and I’m a sucker for authors narrating their own books but unless you are fond of propagandas, I don’t think anyone would like this audio.
