This was a great read. The story is beautifully told from the perspective of the dog, Enzo.

Even if you don't love dogs, this story is not a 'pet story'. It's a moving description of the depths and highs of the human soul, and the narrator just happens to be a dog.

Read it a couple of years ago and it still stays with me. I highly recommend it. You do not have to love dogs or have dogs in your life to get absorbed in this book. I always recommend it to friends

I'm not a dog person, don't like car racing, but I loved this book. Really great from beginning to end!
