This is a short book you'll have a hard time putting down. It is a story told by Enzo, a mix breed retriever who's proud to have a little spaniel in his 'heinz 57' pedigree.
The story opens as Enzo is entering his twelfth year, he's 84 in man-years. Tired, sore, and stiff from hip dysplasia plus a tangle with a car a few years back, Enzo tells us his life's story from being picked out of a multi-puppy litter by his forever master and best friend, to his pending trip across and beyond the Rainbow Bridge.
What an engrossing story this turns out to be, even though its being told to you by a dog, in first person, you get pulled in on the turn of every quick page. Enzo will quickly let you know that a dog can't dwell on things to long, so the book's chapters are short, tantalizing, and presented just as Enzo sees things.
Of course there are some 'life lessons' in this story told by a dog about his human family. He'll talk about the 'Black Demon Zebra' that can drive you blind with rage, the Mongolian legends about dogs and an afterlife, and he really does get to ride in a racecar...though not in the rain.
We all get wrapped up in our everyday dramas of life that are played out at work, home, and in our deepest feelings. Even with all that going on, I encourage you, to take the few hours to let Enzo tell you his story. You'll be reminded of the most important formulas for a successful and happy life....."you can't win the race if you don't finish the race" and you must keep your eyes on the road ahead of you.....because "where the eyes go, the wheels go" !
Enjoy.....I sure did !
Descriptions easily and immediately familiar !
Marsh Robert, aka, General Robert E. Lee
He puts you in the scene, in the middle of the action
Mary Lincoln's last seeing her husband immediately before he passed away
The author inserts you into a thoroughly gripping, complete, and memorable few weeks in American History and you leave with the realization that good or bad, this is who we are.
No opinion, I have not reviewed the print version.
The 'insider' interviews of what was being said as heard by opposing participants.
Tones and inflections that add audible adjectives to the meaning of the narrative.
Gridlock resulting from mutual arrogance !
In this election year, this is a very timely book. Everyone needs to read the story and determine for themselves the elements of fact and fiction that has tied our country into a knot.
