Clearly a man comfortable with his craft, dedicated to research and the nuance of language, Stein has created the story of a dog known as Enzo, who believes he will be reincarnated as a human when his time as a dog is done. During Enzo's journey as a dog, he becomes emotionally attached to his master, Denny, who is a rising race car driver. Together Enzo and Denny experience joy in a marriage and birth of a child, the thrill of the race course, and then the devastation of the loss of all they've held precious.
Never maudlin or trite, the emotional impact of Stein's story rings true with a subtlety which is quite astonishing.
Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable read. Highly recommended.
so much so that I ordered two for my friends/family....
was disappointed in this particular choice as it was not the adult version.
be careful to look an enlarged pic of front cover
where it says...juvenille version. tho it probably was very good also.
This is a wonderful book, but I hesitate to say it wasn't too humorous.
