Stick with it long enough to get past the evolution part in the 1st chapter. At first I thought it was going to be an impersonal story about the dog's views on evolution but it quickly turned to his life with Denny and all the pain and joy and life they experienced together. It was incredibly good and I didn't want it to end.
For all those out there that not only love their pet but really enjoy hanging out with them, this book is for you. Coming from the dog's perspective, the book confirms that other's think like you and hanging out with your dog is cool. It is not mushy or overdone. Or any of that pet/parent thing going on. Its just a dog with his person sharing a life together and enjoying themselves. A best buddy relationship and all is good.

I had never heard of this book, but it was recommended to me after our dog passed away last summer. Spent the credit I had, thinking it would be a nonfiction book about the author's dog. It wasn't (obviously), but what a pleasant surprise this book was. Well written, more than outstandingly performed and Enzo is great, even though he was made up. I liked the story, which moved me to my core, I loved the tone of Enzo's musings and I spent the last bit crying on my bycicle today. My wife's English isn't really good, so I tried to buy it for her in Dutch, only to find it discontinued in The Netherlands.What a pity. Thankfully I found a second-hand copy, which she finished well before me. I would recommend this book without a moment's hesitation to anyone with a soul craving a good read (or listen).
Super and real
Endo's saying he'll return as a human.
don't do a movie.Can't be real enough...
Really surprised by this read. I thought it would be fun and light, which it was in places, but overall it was inspiring. I'm really glad I took a risk.
I enjoyed this book immensely. I would say this book is in the top 5 audio books I have listened to, for sure.
I loved the relationship between the main characters and the dog. It was heart warming and it made me really miss my dog!
I highly recommend it! It was a great listen / read and I would likely listen to it again.
I only listened to the audio and it was wonderful. I bought the book for my mother and she loved it too, then she lent it to a friend that loved it as well.
So creative to hear it from the dog's perspective.
No I have never listened to his performances before.
Just "Racing in the Rain"
I just loved this book.
This was a great book! It was uplifting and positive. I am a dog lover, and I thought that the way this story was told was great! I highly recommend it if you are going through somthing and need a laugh and a cry.
Really enjoyed this book. I am a dog lover and found myself missing my own dog at home while I listened. There were a few elements of the car racing storyline that I could have done without but all in all it led to a solid, involved tale that I enjoyed. Recommend!
I'm a dog lover and heard that this story was a good one. It starts out as a fun listen and the longer I listened, I was so captivated by Enzo and his thinking. He's so funny. I had an hour left to end this book so I went to the gym thinking I would be able to finish it there. I almost had to leave and go to my car since the ending was so gripping and sweet. I teared up so bad and almost broke down. Thankfully I had my towel to hide my face and wipe my tears. This was a wonderful story.
