I rarely find a book that I wish to take the time to write review for, and this is one of them. A very well written and narrated book, that uses colorful and descriptive language to paint the saga of a race car driver's family and life from the eyes of his faithful dog, Enzo. I have to admit that its sad start and character lows had me wanting to walk away from the book a couple times. But the wonderful ride up and down made for a compelling story that in the end I was glad I hung on for. If you like dogs, heartfelt glimpses at life's struggles, and would like to learn a little about Indy racing at the same time, this is a must read.
I had some misgivings about this one, but I couldn't resist. I'm glad I didn't. It was wonderful - sweet, sad, a driveway-sitter. Enzo (the dog) knows just enough to make him a believable narrator, yet has a doglike naivete - nice job by Stein. It is somewhat predictable and a little syrupy at times, but this is forgiven.
To the producers: PLEASE LOSE THE **** MUSIC!!! This gets worse every year. Now they fade the music for about 10 seconds into the text so you can't even skip through it. PLEASE STOP!!!
listened to this book on a recent trip with 3 ladies in the car, usually wouldn't be able to get a word in edge ways but this time silence they were so absorbed in the story and all burst into tears at the end - even i had a frog in my throat ! recommended!!
My husband and I listened to this book together and both thoroughly enjoyed it. We loved Enzo and were sad when the book ended. It is funny, heartwarming and sweet. I highly recommend it.
Nothing like a great book when on the move.
I fell in love with this book. If you have ever lived with a dog, you will appreciate the narrators perspective. Enzo provides a beautiful insight into a dog's life. Well done!!
A story from the dog's point of view? I was skeptical, but it works. Engaging from beginning to end. I predict a run on puppy sales.
This book was a joy to listen to. I would come home from work and walk my dog and listen to it, it made my connection to my dog closer and made me laugh and cry. I recommend to all pet owners.
Great book! Explores on the value of perseverance. Fight for what you want and never give up. Loved Enzo (the dog) telling the story. Makes you look at things from a different perspective.
