This book is a touching story about a dog retelling his life story. I cried my eyes out the whole book. The main character Enzo the dog is on his deathbed, and remembering his greatest memories. He tells you of the mistakes hes made, the joys of being young, and all of his secrets. This book made me laugh, cry, and just feel good inside. If you are looking for a quick but enjoyable read this is the one for you! I LOVED this book!!!!
I VOTE YOU GO TO THE LIBRARY AND GET THIS BOOK. YES. RIGHT NOW. Truthfully, I think that there is no difference between good and bad books, only the difference between good and bad authors. Some authors, while writing the book, are willing to risk killing off the main characters, this is a huge risk because you have to write the character's death just right, or the book will be horrible. I am not ashamed to say that when I was reading this book I was crying from the 6th grade wing, to the lunch room, then to the school's library. This book was so beautifully written, it was as if that after you read it you see through a dog's eyes. (By the way I did not spoil the book when I said that the main character will die, the main character figures that out in the first chapter.) Yes, the main character is a dog named Enzo, and no, that does not mean that the book is childish and stupid, in my mind I think it makes the book better. Throughout the book, Enzo is sure that when he dies, he will turn into a human, and though he will miss his family, he knows that he will see them again in his next life. He is one who is not afraid of death, and like Peter Pan said, "To die would be an awfully great adventure." I have to admit, I cheated on this book. I read the last chapter. I know, that's like a crime against nature, but that was when I cried, and cried, and cried. This book is not all about Enzo, it's about his owner, and the troubles they go through. Those who like Marley and Me, read this, in my opinion it's ten times better.
