I could not put this book down and yes, I cried at the end. Enzo, the canine narrator of Garth Stein's entrancing novel, has the soul of a human being and the book provides a recipe for how to live life. On the eve of his death, Enzo is remembering the past, but also anticipating the future when he will be reincarnated as a human. Enzo believes this because he saw it on a television documentary. Enzo spends much of his day watching documentaries, the Weather Channel and Denny's old racing films. Denny is his master and a race car driver trying to make it big. Enzo is his biggest fan. However, this is not a book about racing; it's about how to live your life with grace and perseverance. Denny and Enzo share a life of great sorrow, but also of deep love, courage and grace. Wonderfully written.
