I would recommend it for the light reading and "no-brainer" content.
I liked the plot since there were several things happening at once. This is definitely not the same plot The author has used before, but the antics do repeat themselves.
I think the plot lends itself well to a movie.
I'm a big fan of the Stephanie Plum series and enjoy reading the light, uncomplicated plot lines in between other novels which are more cerebral. I've always enjoyed the continuity of going from one to the next and always knowing who is who. Unfortunately, what bogs this book down is its constant explanation of who is who, who lives where, and telling the new reader the connections that exist between characters. It is definitely a stand-alone book, not dependent upon the others to get the gist, but I already know the gist and grew tired of being reminded.
If you're a dog lover this book will give you an added dimension to the love you hold for the animal. Smart, funny, and sensitive, it's a story that stimulates the imagination to wonder whether our faithful animals could really hold an opinion we have no idea of. This book is a mixture of spiritual and emotional insights into the human condition only a dog could notice. I loved the journey from beginning to end that we all take, as dog owners, with our beloved companions. And we get the wonderful surprise of an ending we don't expect. Always fun. Even if you're not a dog lover this book holds a unique perspective into the inner workings of the human mind, and the human heart, as told by the canine, our most loyal companion.
I loved the personal insights made by the story-teller, Enzo, that were his own personal insights but that mirrored what goes on inside the human psyche. Some real and true observations are couched inside the dog's mind.
I am a woman so I liked the make voice since this is a male dog. I wouldn't have had that perspective if I had read the book instead of listened to it. His delivery was seamless and genuine and believable as the dog Enzo.
Because my friends also have kids.
Simple, sweet with a little drama, the kid learns his strengths and relationships are formed because of this.
He is great with accents.
This is similar to the Harry Potter series in that it's a kid's story that adults will also enjoy.
