'Coco' is a difficult story to listen to, not any fault of the great job done by the Reader; the tale itself is one of a cruel, meanspirited person committing equine murder in the most evil ways. As a lover of all animals (with the exceptions of slugs and earwigs - don't get me started) it had a heartbreaking effect upon me. I am adding this review of 'At the Gate'. It's more of a question, really..why would you make me cry?!?! That was wrenchingly sad. Now I am thinking of all the puppets I have known throughout my life..😭. I thought these were supposed to be scary. Now, instead of being covered in goose flesh, I am having an ugly-cry moment. First the horse, now an afterlife of deceased canines. Sure hope the next one isnt about where hamburgers come from.😟
