    I have read it. Good book but a bit sad. Not what I would usually read but told by a dog. So i got it and couldn't put it down. I have read hundreds of books and only I handful have made me cry, this is one of them.

    I read Marley and me and I cried, but sometimes a good cry is refreshing.

    I found this book while searching books on Amazon. :]
    I wasn't able to order it, but I can't help but think about the little bit I read every now and again! I want to read this book!
    It's good to know it is in fact worth the read...Yes?

    It didn't leave me feeling good.
    Without giving too much away, I think if you like actual car racing, you're a step ahead. I do not.
    I skipped whole paragraphs because I do not like any sports, and had no problem following the story anyway.

    I've heard really good things about it from another of people, but also heard it was a bit sad. I happen to be into racing, so probably a little better for me, and just ordered it for my father in law who is also into racing and dogs.

    I've finished it! My parents are big Formula One racing fans. We know a guy whos one of the top guys and everything so they always go see them when they're close. So I know a little bit about racing.. This is different though, but car racing always interested me.

    The book was really good. Not so much about the dog, but just from the dogs POV. I really enjoyed it.
