Reading this sensitive memoir brought and added many magic moments to my life.
“The novel follows the story of Denny Swift, a race car driver and customer representative in a high-end Seattle auto dealership, and his dog Enzo, who believes in the Mongolian legend that a dog who is prepared will be reincarnated in his next life as a human.
Enzo spends most of his days watching and learning from television, gleaning what he can about his owner’s greatest passion, race car driving — and relating it to life. Enzo eventually plays a key role in Denny’s child-custody battle with his in-laws, and distills his observations of the human condition in the mantra “that which you manifest is before you.” Enzo helps Denny throughout his life, through his ups and downs.”
“l am in love with this book, personally my favorite from Garth Stein, have read it 2x. When my oldest was 16 I handed the book to her to read, she’s an avid reader and was hesitant to read a book ‘her mom recommended’, however, she decided to give it a try. She finished in a week and said, “Best book I’ve ever read… I actually want a copy for myself because I know I’ll want to read it again”. When my youngest was 12 she asked to read it, based on how much her sister and I talked about this book. She read and I got the SAME reaction, ‘best book I’ve read thus far and I want my own copy!”. I would only recommend to a 12-15 year-old. If you are okay with some, what society considers, ‘bad language’ and some adult content, otherwise it’s a great story and loved by every single person I’ve lent the book too. I have 4 copies in my home, one for each of us and one used as a ‘loaner’. I highly recommend this book to anyone that hasn’t read it yet.” by Dreaming of Hawai.
