If you are looking for something thoughtful, sensible, well thought out and executed. Look elswhere. This is awful. None of it rings true.
Great story especially if you are a person who wonders what your dog is thinking and wish they could talk. Narrator is very good and overall a wonderful book.
The reason this book is so well reviewed is simple. A good story with great characters read by a top notch narrator.
I'm a dog lover so maybe there is some bias in my thoughts but I think this story about a man and his dog &his daughter & his wife & his in-laws & his job & his passion has all the elements to conclude your time with this book is very well spent.
This book is not just for people who love dogs, its for anyone who has ever loved at all. Beautifully written and read. This story is a lesson in living and loving in the now. I was speechless after reading it and will recommend it to many!
I'll never look at our dog the same way again! Really enjoyed this and it wasn't nearly as sad as I thought it would be.....very heartwarming!
Both the print and the audible versions are terrific. I must say that this audible version was very powerful. I read print books and my husband listens to Audible books. I had read this book long ago with my daughter and wanted my husband to enjoy it. After he listened to it, I was dying to hear it in this version. It did such justice to the wonderul work of art..
That the story is told through the dogs eyes. Every canine owner wonders what goes through their minds and this gives the reader a wonderful, thoughtful, and imaginative insight into what they could be thinking.
His calm and concise demeanor makes the listening smooth and easy.
I would definately recommend this Audible book to anyone and everyone!
Finally a great story written by one of our own
I loved Enzo. The humans were pretty interesting characters also
Sometimes he got stuck in a low voice. Watch the needle on the recording machine. This didn't happen too often.
Well done. Insiteful. Great emotional development.
The narration done in the dog's voice.
Seeing your life through your animal's eyes and heart and how that animal loves you through all your faults.
He captured the heart of the dog.
I was not sure I would like it, since I am not into race cars; but I did nothing the whole day and listened to it straight through.
I wouldn't know.
My goodness, there were so many. The whole book was memorable with characters to love and root for, a difficult story and lessons learned as seen through the eyes of a dog. I thought that aspect who be weird but it wasn't.
I was sad when it ended. I felt like I knew the characters and would miss them.
I would absolutely listen to this book again, and have plans to do so on a road trip so that my husband can hear it, too.
Enzo, of course, because he is so wise and endearing. Other than Enzo, Luca was probably my favorite character because for being in the novel for such a short time, he is a very well-developed character.
I'm not particularly emotional when listening to audiobooks, but if I were, I'm sure I would have cried.
Give this book a shot. You won't be sorry.
