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.
I loved that the thoughts Enzone (the dog) human thoughts..that he wanted to comfort others and protect them...seems real enough when you interact with your own pets. When I am sad my pets seem to sense it. I certainly look at them differently since reading this.
When Eve brought him inside from the garage ..because she needed him near. This was really special .....and he loved being needed...
When Enzone wanted to hug his owner...but he couldn't because he had only paws...That was so sweet.
Very worthwhile. :) and the reader was so soothing... I loved it!
I'm not usually one to relisten, but I would with this one. Very entertaining with the full range of emotion. Besides, who can go wrong with a dog as the main character!
