Highly recommend this clever book -- easy to listen to and the lead character is insightful and loveable. I got a bit teary, but uplifting in end -- certainly not a downer. Hoping to read more from this author.
If you're going to listen to only one book this year, make it this one. Whether you've loved a dog or not, I think you'll love this book.
I was already in a sad mood when I read this which given some of the reviews would have put me into even more of a funk... but instead I found it uplifting and strength giving! Enjoyed it so much that for the first time ever I listened to it in one epic six hour block, I simply could not turn it off. Beautifully written and beautifully narrated... one of those books where I just knew the superb narration gave me a higher level of enjoyment. Was twittering throughout the six hours about how incredible it was & got replies from strangers agreeing with me... which surely is a sign of a book that has touched many other people. Easily the best book I've read/listened to in recent years.
of course everything is relative, but I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book. There was an element of this book for which I had particular empathy, but regardless of your background I found this book as being particularly special. I hope others read it and get as much enjoyment from it as I did.
This book was so enjoyable to listen to. I liked hearing things from the dog's point of view, which had me laughing or crying, depending on the dog or his family's circumstances at the time. His frequent desire for opposable thumbs or for a short fat tongue so he could speak just added to the charm of the character. I've recommended this book to all of my dog-loving friends.
First, I love the the thought that there is a possibility that Enzo, or any dog, could possess the understanding and thought process displayed in this book. Second, even if he couldn't, his effect on the family is truely beautiful. The story and its telling brought me to laughter and tears and back again. A truely wounderful experiance that I highly recommend. Beware of the Zebra!
Absolutely loves this!! Wasn't expecting too much from it but was pleasantly surprised. Real heart-warming story. Thinking of buying the real book now too.
I had a friend that was very excited about this book and said after a somewhat slow start she enjoyed this story immensely. I had a much more lukewarm response to the dog narrating this life story. You might like it.
I have dogs and while listening to this book, I found myself talking to them thinking that they understand everything I said to them. It was a great book, especially for dog owners.
Would give this one a 10 star! Not only is it a great story, the reader could not have done a better job! I hope there will be more to come from the team that put this togeather! God bless them all!
