This book will take you through all of your emotions. It had my attention from the beginning and never lost it. You will fall in love with both the human, Denny and the dog. It is a heart warming story that makes you stop and think about your own life. You are sure to enjoy it! It has become one of my favorites!
amazing from start to finish...so sad it's over! a beautiful story. If you like this book you would most likely enjoy "A Dog's Purpose" as well.
This was an excellent listen, but as others have said, VERY sad, often leaving me with a blue feeling after listening. But the dog, Enzo, his voice and perspective make it worthwhile. This would not be good for kids, or maybe even younger teens.
I loved this book. As narrator, the dog does a great job. And it's only gets in the way at first, Then you get used to it. I was completely taken by the book. It's a book about a family, and uses car racing as a metaphor on life. A funny thing happened while I was driving. I missed two, not one but two exits on the interstate while on a business trip. It was worth it! I got to listen even longer that morning. I recommend this. Read it to find out why "your car goes where your eyes go."
Being an animal lover (especially dogs) my whole life I think this is the one of the best books I have read. You get to go through all the highs and lows of Enzo's fantastic life and really get insight into the bond between humans and dogs. I felt I really needed this book after the loss of my beloved Corgi after 10 years.
This was one of my favorites so far! Loved Loved Loved this audio book! I have a very wide variety of interest when it comes to books, and this is a wonderful Listen. Worth every single minute. Reading some of the other reviews I was not sure, however I don't think it is a sad, heartbreaking listen. I find it rather uplifting! It just describes the natural course of life! Truely a great one!
Enzo is a very smart and lovable dog who practices becoming human because he has seen a television program about an ancient theory that dogs reincarnate into humans. He also loves auto racing, which is a good thing because his master (if such a dog can be mastered) is a professional auto racer, whose specialty is his ability to race smoothly and very fast on wet tracks. I like dogs, love auto racing and like to think about pets coming back to see us, again someday. This was a very creative book in the way the author lets Enzo get most of his learning from television. There was a lot of humor, some pain with the health of Enzo's human family, but overall, just a really fun read (listen). Highly recommended for those who are willing to let their mind go beyond reality. By the way, seriouisly happy ending.
I thought this was a wonderful book. While the book is about a lab mix, not the yellow lab on the cover, it reminded me of my late dog, Louise, and how she "spoke" to us. She was, indeed, an integral part of our family, and that spirit is captured wonderfully in this short but heartfelt book.
So why only 4 stars and not 5? Because the producer of this book couldn't help herself and added the cheesiest, corniest, crappiest music ever placed on an audiobook. I'm not a fan of music on audiobooks to begin with, especially ones as well read as Christopher Welch reads this one, but clearly something motivated this producer to license the worst possible music and then make it as obtrusive as possible.Would someone please tell this woman that these are audio BOOKS and not television shows.
So, sorry for the rant, but this particular recording is one of the worst abuses of music I've heard in many an audio book, and this book is simply too good to ruin. My suggestion? Remix it and remove the music altogether!!
