    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.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "Wonderful and very Moving"
    Overall

    I have listened to many audio books and this is the first one that has caused me to write a review. First of all the narrator is excellent. If a dog could tell his life story, he'd sound like the narrator. The reading was not cartoony or tongue-in-cheek. I believed Enzo was telling me his story.

    And the story is wonderful. I won't mention plot points but will tell you that Enzo couldn't have had a better master and he knows it. If you can listen to this book without laughing out loud or shedding at least a few tears, you have a heart made of stone.

    For those who are not fans of auto racing, neither am I. Enzo is and he drew me into the sport while listening to the novel. Rest assured that while auto racing is referred to many times, this is not a story about auto racing.

    If you enjoy stories about the bond between man and dog, please listen to this book.

    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Katie says: "Great book; so-so narrator"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Engrossing story with a great dog.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dog and the devotion he receives from his "owners."


    Any additional comments?

    If I could change one thing about this book, it would be to tone down the violence some. I think the assassin character wasn't that necessary to the story. That's why I didn't give it 5 stars.

    Having said that, I should point out that my wife, who does not like violence, loves this book and this reading of the book.

    It would sure be nice to see a good mini-series made from The Watchers. All the previous attempts have been really bad.
