    This powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of four cadets who have become bloodbrothers. Together they will encounter the hell of hazing and the rabid, raunchy and dangerously secretive atmosphere of an arrogant and proud military institute. They will experience the violence. The passion. The rage. The friendship. The loyalty. The betrayal. Together, they will brace themselves for the brutal transition to manhood... and one will not survive.

    P. J. Benyei says: "Amazing book superb narrator"
    "Why did I wait so many years to listen to it?"
    Overall

    Tough start. Seemed repetative, and like a bunch of screaming. It all serves a purpose. Hated to see it end. I lived small parts of this in survival training, etc. Noting like Conroy describes, but enough to believe and feel the time period military. Loved the feel of what I think the sough is probably like, being a California boy. My wife started it, and could not continue. It is not for everyone, but I tried to get her to continue. I know she would have felt it worth whilem if she had kept going. This is one that I bellieve listening to would be better than reading. I have a friend who hates audio books. I had her listen to a small part, and now she is listening to the rest.

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    FanB14 says: "Artful Surprise"
    "Simple but interesting"
    Overall

    A friend listed this on a "books you should enjoy" list. I thought the overall story was very simple, but at the same time it kept my interest. Had some feeling, but no surprises.
