    Meet one funny dog - Enzo, the lovable mutt who tells this story. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: most dogs love to chase cars, but Enzo longs to race them. He learns about racing and the world around him by watching TV and by listening to the words of his best friend, Denny, an up-and-coming race car driver, and his daughter, Zo; his constant companion. Enzo finds that life is just like being on the racetrack - it isn't simply about going fast. And, applying the rules of racing to his world, Enzo takes on his family's challenges and emerges a hero.

    Ellen says: "Loved it!"
    "WARNING! This is a schmaltzy cheesy chick book."

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The best part of this book was that it was short.I could not have taken another 2 minutes of this pablum.If you liked Love Story or The Notebook, you would probably like this book. If, on the other hand, you thought it would be about life from a dogs viewpoint and brimming with prescient or witty insight, YOU WOULD BE WRONG. This book is a formulaic concoction of every pathetic chick gimmick ever devised. Young mother dies of brain cancer. Grandparents sue over custody of daughter. Father goes broke. The obligatory helpful hollywood homosexual couple comes in to be friendly. I won't spoil the plot, but I bet you can guess what happens. Oh, I almost forgot, the other grandmother is blind. Wouldn't you know. I bought for a long vacation drive with the family thinking I got a dog book. OMG was I wrong. DO NOT GET THIS BOOK UNLESS YOU LIKE CHEESY CHICK FLICKS.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It has made me never want to read an Audible description ever again.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Here is the most profound thing in the book.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The narrator did a fine job. He is probably still drinking heavily to wipe out his memory.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    THIS IS NOT A BOOK ABOUT A DOG. IT IS ANOTHER STUPEFYING BUCKET OF GIRLY SCHMALTZ AND SAP. You have been warned.
