    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.

    Overall

    This was a phenomenal listen. The voice was dead on perfect and you really felt all the emotions. Tying in the principles of car racing and life was well done and interesting even if you aren't a racing buff. The characters were beautifully realized and multi dimensional and part of the end will bring tears to your eyes. You'll probably look at this book several times and won't get it because your first assumption is that a book from the point of view of a dog is silly. I felt the same. I'm glad my book club picked it because I never would have known what I missed. the dog is wry and poignant and a brilliant character. Really, really good. One of the best books I've either read or listened to, all year. Really a great listening book.
