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.
Engrossing story with a great dog.
The dog and the devotion he receives from his "owners."
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.
