    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.

    If you could sum up The Art of Racing in the Rain in three words, what would they be?

    I loved the perspective of the dog - who told the story. Very neat to see things from his point of view, and what an intelligent dog!! The story really laid bare the difficulty and the reward of sticking through the hard times. Very moving, just awesome. Had some tough times listening to sad things that were happening, but that is a good author for you! Takes you right along with the characters, as if they are members of your own family. A great tale.

    In this Hugo Award-winning novella, dogs have become extinct after an epidemic, and the Humane Society has been granted extraordinary police powers to protect the remaining animals. As the Society investigates the death of a jackal on a highway, its attention turns to a photojournalist whose own dog was one of the last to survive.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last of the Winnebagos to be better than the print version?

    Very artistic in that it touches the heart. It speaks of things that happen in a future we have not seen yet, and is believable. Spoiler...One man's realization of himself. Wow. Connie Willis is a great author!
