The story was heart warming. It was really funny at parts, and had some dark turns. Not an intellectual book, but it was a highly entertaining one.
Great tone of voice.
I loved the dogs theories. The ending was great.
Easy enough to listen to while driving, but I couldn't leave it in the car. I blazed through this one.

This is a great story from a unique perspective...that of a dog. This is a story about a dog and his man...and racing too. I have listened to this book three times now...it is that good.

This is a must read. I sat listening to this masterpiece with my Labrador at my feet and I could not help but wonder what she was thinking and who was in fact master.
I don't usually like books that anthropomorphosize animals. It's an eye-rolling premise. Normally. This is not a 'normal' book. This is a little piece of written artwork and the dog's narrative was perfect. No one else could have done it. This book is about a dog and his man, about racing cars, about how families support and betray each other, about success and failure, about living and dying, and mostly about love. This is a story told by a dog on the verge of human-hood.
It didn't blow my mind... but there were some sweet moments, and also some good humor. It was a little different coming from the perspective of a dog.
The person that did the reading had a very pleasant voice.
I was surprised with the story line. Enjoyed to the end.
A friend of mine recommended this book to me, and I had no idea what I'd been missing all these years. I realize this is an older book, but if you missed this like I did, please take the time to listen to it. The narrator was PERFECT for this story as well which makes all the difference.
This entire novel is told from the dog's point of view. As a dog lover, I really appreciated this approach. I'm convinced half the time that my dogs really do understand when I talk to them, so this was a wonderful indulgence to hear what the dog thinks when he's being spoken to or to know what he's observed.
It's a well-written story that kept my attention all the way through and brought up every emotion creating everything from belly-laughs to tears. I highly, highly recommend this!
I really enjoyed this book and couldnt wait for opportunities to
steal away and be with this family.
I was attacked with a frieght train of emotion at the end when Denny realizs Enzo has come back to him. What love between two souls!
Enzo. It is amazing to get a glimpse of such profound wisdom and compassion surrounded by a ball of frustration for being bound by physical limitations. What a masterful writer for portraying it in a a way that you can actually feel it.
I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting but I also knew I didnt want it to end. I cried to the point of heaves as Enzo ran out the back door into the field. I wanted to go back to the chapter when Enzo rode in the racecar!!
This book is excellent. Told from the dogs perspective....characters were great. You can't help but fall in love with all of them and at times the story is gripping keeping at the edge of my seat. At times laughing and of course crying. This is a MUST listen/Read book and I hear the movie is in production this year....so so so so so good...especially if you are a dog lover!!
I like to read stories about dogs, mysteries that are a little but humorous, stories about relationships that are not too explicate, Christian fiction and stories revolving around knitting and quilting.
I didn't read the print version.
The relationship between the dog and the humans I the story.
