What a special story. It made me laugh and it made me cry. And who knew there could be similarities between car racing and how one lives their life - even if that life is the life of a dog. I miss Enzo...
Truly superb book! Gripping and extremely emotional and enthralled all at the same time. A very unique way of writing through the eyes of a dog. This book is a vivid portrait of a heartbreaking way we may sometimes perceive our pets The narrator captured the story beautifully. I would HIGHLY recommend this book even if you do not have a pet.
This was a great dog story! I enjoyed every minute of it.
My son read this book while he was deployed, loved it and recommend it. I enjoyed it immensely! The narrator did a wonderful job.
This was actually a re-read. I had forgotten how much I loved it! It will make you laugh and make you cry. Narration was great!
You don't have to bed a dog lover to enjoy this read. Author does a fantastic job and could totally read this book for a second time.
What an amazing book. Deep but light at the same time. Great narration and an amazing. And thoughtful story.
I must admit I felt a little silly about 20 or 30 minutes into listening to this book narrated by a dog... the book starts necessarily establishing the dog as narrator and then take off - WHOOSH! Incredible depth of characters, emotionally engaging, gripping story of this dog's family. Super twist at the last! I could not recommend it enough. Sure- the author is witty and there are places where you will laugh out loud- but the balance of the story is wonderfully engaging and the narrator makes the story that much more marvelous! excellent choice of narrator!
Great book about life! I couldn't stop listening! Highly recommend Ed! Narrator was very expressive and great to listen too.
I enjoyed this book from "mans best friends" perspective up until the "dog" got to talk in court. That was when the book became more childlike than real. I have always had dogs and do believe they are intuitive to "their humans" needs, a dog that talks....really? Cute idea but I'm not 5 years old anymore. Otherwise I liked this book.
