Not normally the type of book I read. A friend recommended it to me. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have recommended it and bought it for other friends and family. I was glad to see that another version titled just "Racing in the Rain" was offered that cleaned up some of the only adult related situations so I could pass it on to my kids to read.
The narration was wonderful. It made the dog become real.
Enzo, the dog, he had amazing insight.
He gave Enzo a voice and a personality that reading couldn't do.
I would take Denny's wife out to dinner. She needs to know to go to the Dr. and get her final wishes in writing.
I LOVED this book!

One of the best
original voice and Wisdom beyond human. You will understand if you hear it.
Wisdom beyond his Dog years
not particularly. found it a bit tedious, a nice little fable about a family's life, told from the dog's point of view, but the dog's point of view was the most notable thing about it. any dog-lover or one who has lived with a dog already knows these "insights" brought to us through his telling.
nah, the storytelling itself was a bit tedious and elementary.
he didn't have much to work with, imo, and so can't really criitque his reading, altho his voice was pleasant enough.
Absolutely. This was a truly unexpected gem of a tale and Christopher Welch really understands the narrators inner world. The writing and narration go perfectly together.
The narrator's point of view is wonderfully unique. He is full of the insights and wisdom that come from being a "Zen" like observer of those around him; as well as the fallibility and emotional impulsivity of interacting with our loved ones on a daily basis.
This is a story that lingers. It is a wonderfully and painfully human story about love, family, healing, and the power of keeping your eyes focused on the road ahead.
I had never heard of the book before I came across it on audible.com. I love everything about this story and the way the book is read.
It touches all the emotions and the narrator - the dog - is brilliant.
Seemingly understanding the emotions of grief
There were several. The sensitivity of the story is outstanding.
A great escape from the world which is increasingly focused on power and consumption.
Yes, I have recommended this audiobook. I thought it was creatively written and very relatable.
I loved this book?
Yes! Enzo has given me valuable tips for driving my 8 cylinder rear wheel car in the rain.
"I saw a video of dogs in Mongolia..." The hope of reincarnation.
No, but I loved the tenor and expression of his voice.
Have been recommending to dog loving friends, car racing friends and friends who have lost loved ones.
The dog's thinking and witty lines.
Oh, his voice and humor added so much! He got into that dog's body.
The love of the dog for his master .
Just get it and listen with a fellow dog lover. You'll laugh and cry together.
