Travel in my car 3 hours a day, I listen to audible books both ways. I now hate to leave my car. Thinking of a way I can live in my car - kidding! But I love my audible books. They are the best part of my day.
Yes! I never listen to books more than once. But this one I will. I absolutely love Enzo! I am so sorry the book ended. I wish it would go on and on. Author did an outstanding job of developing the dog as the main character. I cried so hard at the ending - I was driving home from work and had to pull over. That is how great the book is.
when Enzo took the legal papers that Denny was going to sign and urinated on them. What a great thing the author did - brave on his part.
So many many parts but mainly the end of Enzo's life - was very touching. I was so moved - I cried for hours and truly mourned the loss of that character.
Great book to listen to - you will enjoy it very much.
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
I tend to like these sorts of books and maybe this would have been better in the written form. I was bored stiff with it and kept on going to sleep. Don't bother with this is my advice
I am a lifelong reader and I enjoy many types of books. My favorites are romance, historical fiction, and a little sci-fi thrown in.
I didn't read the print version, but I think the voice version brought the characters to life in a way that the print version couldn't.
Enzo, of course, was my favorite. How could he not be?
I haven't heard any other Christopher Welch performances.
Again, that would have to be Enzo. I always suspected dogs were smarter than they could articulate. He just proved it!
Be ready to go through a full range of emotions...from complete happiness to heart wrenching sadness. This book delivers it all.
Written from the viewpoint of a dog named Enzo, who has beautiful insight into the lives of his people. A different and beautiful story of what a dog learned in a short life, what takes most humans a lifetime, and often never grasp. It is sad, joyful, and funny.
I've already recommended this book to my dog loving friends. It is similar to Marley and Me but I think I enjoyed this one even better. At first I didn't think I was going to like it. The story, style and characters definitely grew on me.
I thought that the ups and downs in the plot were interesting. There were quite a few surprises that kept things moving.
I laughed, cried, and pondered a whole lot.
This is one of my favorites. It brings out all the emotions a good book should. It made me laugh out loud, cry tears of sadness and at the end, tears of joy. It tells a beutiful story of perseverance and love and it is told so wonderfully from the dog's perspective.
It's the kind of book you only listen to once. But, I would definitely recommend it for that first listen :)
Enzo, of course. Great narrator perspective. Very unique angle on a story.
No. At least not by the author Garth Stein. The narrator's performance was more than satisfactory.
I don't know what "this genre" is.
While the world may be full of people so iatrophobic as to suffer death by slow torture rather than visit a doctor, I could not care less about them. Nor could I feel any sympathy for a man willing to stand idly by - for months - watching his wife dying in agony. Such a man cannot be said to "love" his wife, or care about her at all. (In fact, negligent homicide might apply.) Once these basic plot motivators unfolded I stopped reading.
...but thought it was just okay. There were a few genuinely heartwarming bits, but the story overall wasn't very engaging.
