At first when I realized it was as if the dog were speaking and thinking, I wasn't sure if I would like it as I had tried a different book with a dog narrating recently and didn't like it BUT this was way different and a wonderful tale. Both well written and well read.
It's refreshing to listen to a story told from the perspective of a dog. Garth Stein's Art of Racing in the Rain is a story that has the right combination of humor, wit, and emotion. Christopher Evan Welch's narration was superb and truly enjoyable to listen to.
This was a great listen, it kept my attention throughout the whole book. I loved hearing the story from the dogs perspective, and really fell in love with this dog's personality. The narrator, as always, was wonderful as well. Definitely recommended!
The premise is interesting and the specifics of driving and race cars was fun - like Car and Driver magazine - but the plot was mostly predictable and anthropomorphizing a dog just didn't work and felt strained most of the time, for me anyway. Suspect dog lovers swoon.
Can we have a 6 star rating on this one please!! This is written from the dog's point of view and what an excellent view that is! One of the best books I have ever read. There is so much more to this book than a dog story. It's funny, sad, uplifting, and exciting, a must for everyone that wants a book they cant put down.
I'm pretty much awesome!
This book was amazing! It was well written, had a GREAT story and the narrator was PERFECT for the part. Highly recommend this to not only dog fans, but anyone who knows what it's like to be underestimated.
This book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. I went from laughing out loud to tears rolling down my face. This book is not just for dog owners, but you may enjoy it all the more if you are. It is a story of love, strength, sacrifice, and courage and of an endearing dog named Enzo, who adores his master and strives to be more human. What we all could learn from him!
The narration on this book is wonderful.
Can't think of any, this is an amazing book
He really gives voice to Enzo, makes you feel it more then just reading
I laughed, I cried, went from happy to sad and was stunned and amazed.
It is truly an amazing book, whether read or listened to it is worth the time!
Being a bookseller living outside of Chicago why would I buy audible books? Because I love to listen to them when I really want to relax!
I listen at night, and this book kept me up all night! A marriage torn apart, a man following his dreams with his dog at his side, trying to recapture his little girl from the grandparents who consider him a loser. Great story and narration.
