I loved that the dog was the narrator of this story and it seemed as if Enzo was
a person instead of an animal. The performance by Christopher Evan Welch was MAGNIFICENT!
NONE, UNTIL NOW. I will be looking for others narrated by Mr. Welch .
Dog is almost HUMAN.
I loved the perspective of the dog - who told the story. Very neat to see things from his point of view, and what an intelligent dog!! The story really laid bare the difficulty and the reward of sticking through the hard times. Very moving, just awesome. Had some tough times listening to sad things that were happening, but that is a good author for you! Takes you right along with the characters, as if they are members of your own family. A great tale.
You need to read this book! Put aside any reservations you have an listen with an open mind. It provides amazing insights into life. It made me cry a few times, very touching. I'm about to use some of my Audible book credits to gift it to some close friends.
No, I need a little more excitement in an audio book than what this had to offer. The narrator did a great job, but I think the story was a little lacking.
Is there a "narrated by dog" genre? If so, I would probably try others, because that's what intrigued me. Most likely there isn't though...
Nothing, the narrator was great.
It was a heartfelt story...but just a little boring at times.
After reading the reviews, I really wanted to love this book because it seems most people did. Maybe it's just a personal preference, as I tend to read more suspenseful novels. I thought this would be more light hearted and funny, while it was mostly just kind of depressing and predictable.
This book definitely didn't live up to the hype of other reviews. The story line was predictable, the climax implausible. While it was easy enough to listen to and the performance was satisfactory, the story itself had no real tension, required no committment and was routine. It bordered on boring and thankfully, because it is a relatively short book, ended before I gave up and went on to something more interesting.
I love to multi-task with Audible!
yes, it's definately on my review list
It's not a long listen but enjoyable from begining to end! :)
The story being narrated by a dog.
Great narration, great story, funny, yet philosophical and not a sad ending.
The quality and tone of his voice.
I like the name and wouldn't change it.
I enjoyed this book so much I listened to it twice within about one month!
It was clever to tell the story through a dogs eyes. Nothing else was clever
It was better than the book but not much
I think I will need to shoot my daughter who reccommended it
The fact that this story is told from the perspective of Enzo, a dog, is what made it truly wonderful.
Its nearly impossible not to love the main character of this book the most, especially if you're a dog owner. In Enzo, Garth Stein expresses what we would all hope our own canine's inner dialogue is like. He's a lovable companion with his own set of flaws and an undying devotion to his family. His character was very well written and its obvious the author put a lot of thought into the psyche of a dog.
He enhances Enzo's personality with his intonation and the emotion in his voice. Christopher Evan Welch did a great job of giving voice to all of the characters and making everything scene appropriate. When they were racing, he spoke excitedly and quickly, when the scene was morose or calm his voice adjusted to fit. He gave a great performance and really brought the book to life.
Enzo of course! And I'd take him out to breakfast and buy him pancakes.
