Book I Just Read
recommended by a friend, I was unfortunately one of the 97 out of over 4,000 on Amazon.com who just couldn’t get into this fictional book. A story told by Enzo, a dog, whose
owner wants to pursue his dream to be a world-class sports car racer, it’s also
a story about grief, loss, statuatory rape, separation… all heavy topics related
by a dog, which doesn’t act or sound like a dog. It’s a bit gimmicky; the writing
is not that good, and it’s just not a sophisticated book. A much better book
with the POV of a dog is A Dog’s Purpose, or even better The Story of Edger
Sawtelle. My apologies to all those who loved this book. One out of five stars.
