This book has been on my shelf for a long time, but I had never actually read it...until yesterday. Yesterday, I was going to read a book so I glanced at my bookshelf looking for the perfect book to snuggle up with. I looked and this book stood out in the crowd. "Well, I've never really read this...just the beginning. Anyways, it's about a dog so I already know I'm going to love it." I thought. I was absolutely right!!! It was about a lovable dog named Enzo and his AMAZING story. It's kind of like the movie Marley & Me, except, from a dog's point of view. Enzo tells a happy, funny, and sad story. This book, unlike others, makes you stay on your toes wondering what is next. I think everyone would like this book, and I would recommend it to every one of my friends. This booked has 288 pages (I think I might be a few pages off) so I would recommend it to advanced 5th graders and up! :) Have fun reading this book!! ;)

This book has such potential for my boys to enjoy, and it missed the mark. Too much racing lingo that my boys just are not into.

At first I thought I had the adult version of the book, but the children's version kept me interested in what Enzo, the dog had to tell me about family, life, and racing cars.

I don't know how Garth Stein made it into the head of a dog, but he has me convinced that dogs really think this way. I was reminded of the novel "Ishmael" which I read ages ago in which another animal gives his views of human life on the planet.
