I'm shockedshocked by how much I loved this bookThe narrator is a dogThere is much mentioning of racing Formula One NASCAR Indyand the narrator is a dog But I think I mentioned that alreadyI liked this book so much that it made me want a dog No it made me want this dog And I don't even like dogsEnzo a terrierlab mutt believes in his next life he will be human As he feels practically human already just limited to grand gestures due to his loose muscled tongue and lack of opposable thumbs he spends his dog years closely watching his ownder Denny Swift to learn the art of being human so that when it's his turn he'll have a head startDenny a race car drivermechanicdown on his luck dad is a kind owner who loves his dog and uses racing philosophies in his own life There are many to choose from but my favorite is No race has ever been won in the first corner; many have been lost there Denny's own story is one of work patience courage endurance hope and love It's not an easy story to read There are times I felt like throwing the book I was so mad at Denny's in laws but kind of embarrassing to admit here Enzo kept me sane I just loved that dog Just when I'd about had it he'd make me laugh and I could manage another chapterEnzo dies in the end It's not a secret From the opening pages you are reading the words of a dying dog But that didn't take away my sadness in the end I bawled when Denny held his beloved friend in his arms and says It's okay You can go Think Where The Red Fern Grows and Old Yeller only for adults There is some mentioning of mounting it's a dog's perspective remember and languageSeveral times throughout the book Denny or Enzo say Your car goes where your eyes go Enzo knew that applied to life as well Your life goes where your eyes go I'm happy my eyes rested on this book

Yet another book I was reading as a preview to see if I should purchase it as a gift Sadly noEually disappointing is disliking the work of a local author I always want to like local authors and artists of all stripes but it isn't always possibleFirst I don't think automobile racing is a good metaphor for life Maybe it is but I have a bias I hate the automobile I think the personal automobile is the single most destructive concept we've conceived To then race them in circles no less seems pointless at the very best and perhaps even criminal when one considers the environmental costs As I said I'm biasedThe reason I read this in the first place was the dog as narrator I'm really trying to find a good dog as narrator book This isn't it The dog as narrator in Stein's book is gimmicky It doesn't add to the story it doesn't clarify the plot and it doesn't enhance the narrative I kept asking Why is the dog telling this story I still have no satisfactory answerThe narrator was particularly unlikable to me due to his obsession with being reincarnated as a man It rubbed me the wrong way for several reasons and seemed to detract from the story whenever it came up It also underscored my uestion about why we were listening to the dog in the first placeMy final disappointment with this book involved a little deus ex machina action that tied a little bow around the story and robbed it of any emotional truth it had held for me up to that pointUltimately a discouraging read but I finished it in the unrealized hope that it would redeem itselfI should probably read this review after getting some sleep and edit it for clarity and accuracy but I doubt I will
